If you found one on eBay, give me the item number so I can look at it. Mrcd1 used to sell a lot of them. I fixed one of his radios but there was no way he could know it had a problem. Most of his stuff is pretty good. Reason I asked for your model number is there are a few round-face radios that have a 100 percent failure rate. The cassette model is 56038518. The cd model ends with a "67". After the problem develops the a radio will continue to work fine until the battery is disconnected or run dead. A lot of mechanics are falsely blamed for damaging those models. Most of them have three lighted tone controls but some have two non-lighted controls. The 8518 model has the jack on the back to plug in a remote changer. There is an almost identical radio built by Mitsubishi that looks and mounts the same, has the same three tone controls and runs the same changer. It was only used in one car model for one year so they're hard to find. Used car dealers are always watching eBay for them. Instead, there is an identical cd / cassette radio, also built by Mitsubishi for Chrysler that is a much better model. They weight about four times what the Chrysler-built radios weigh.

What is the make and model of the new stereo? With that we could see if they have a wiring diagram showing the wires for it. Using that and the OEM wiring it may be possible to figure it out.

I actually have found one of the mitsubishi models for a 01-05 dodge stratus w/ the 4 disc changer with the numbers MR459823 and DY-5UC6CWYD. What would your opinion be on this?

I have three of them ready to sell. This model has an orange display and faceplate back lighting. I have a rare one with the standard bluish green back lighting but that one is brand new. I repair and sell radios at the nation's second largest old car show in Iola, WI. If you have the model you listed shipped, be sure the seller installs the shipping screws, (which most people wouldn't have), otherwise there's a real good chance the four lights on the front for the four cds will be flashing and it won't work. That's what I mean by "out-of-time", and I haven't figured out yet how to correct that.

Yeah, this looks like it comes from an auto dismantler so I highly doubt they have the transport lock screws. Chances are I'll just opt for replacing the current system with and aftermarket system that uses SD media cards and just drop the CD's from my truck. I rip all my own music collection anyway.
Thanks for all your help and advice.

Happy to help a fellow Dodge owner. If the seller is LKQ, they have yards all over the country. I visited two in Tennessee a few years ago. One of my 4-disc radios came from them with not one single stitch of packing material in the 15" cubed box! It actually survived but the display crystal was scuffed so badly you couldn't read the numbers. They sent me a second one, also with no packing material. It didn't work but I made one out of the two.

That's the place. Good to know that the unit might not arrive in decent shape. The price seemed good but the hassle of dealing with a non functioning part isn't worth the savings. I can get a new Sony digital media replacement system from Crutchfield for $40 more and thy include shipping, the mounting bezel, and a wiring adapter harness for free. Plus I am willing to bet the audio specs on the Sony is a lot better.

Thanks again.

I have that information, but it's on my computer that just went through a major house fire. If I don't get back to you within a week, post another reply to remind me.
