    Have you tried a CAR400 in it? If you have and the display is not
    working it could be a faulty unit or it could be that the wiring was
    modified for the old unit.

    We sometimes have to cut off part of the plug for other units but the
    part plug ought to be there and it should be possible to fit into the

    Secondly, have you located a CAR400? If not, I can supply a secondhand
    one for you. I can also supply new CDR500 units or other compatible CD

    just out of interest how much would the CDR500 be? (guessing it's the
    radio/cd version of the CAR400) ... looking for a replacement compatible CD
    player for the faulty CAR400 in my 2000(X) Astra

    A CDR500 is around £225 but there are alternatives.

    Most Vauxhall dealers stock a VDO unit which retails at £180. This
    slides straight in and is compatible with the remote display and remote
    steering wheel controls.

    Other units also work but you need adaptors.

    If you are not fussed about the remote display or controls then we
    retail decent CD/mp3 players for £99.

    I ahve one in my wife's Corsa as I was not fussed about the display. It
    still shows the time & temperature.
