Which model radio?

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Adrian Hodgson, Dec 8, 2005.

  1. I have a Vectra model B 96 GLS version. When I got it there was no radio
    fitted, I have fitted a basic model in the dash but obviously the TIS
    display and Steering column controls do not work.
    Can someone please tell me what model should be fitted?

    I believe it was a Philips but not to sure.

    Any one have a spare unit??

    The Philips one is the tape player I think - a CAR400.

    My dad had a '97 Vectra and at that time they came with the CAR400 but
    the CD player (Delco CDR500) was a no-cost option. This may also be an
    option for you.

    If you get one (eBay would be a good bet) - make sure you get the
    security code included with it, as it may require it when first used in
    your car.

    Your local Vauxhall dealer will have spare CAR300 & CAR400
    radio/cassettes in the showroom which they will probaably sell you for
    a pittance - that is what we do!

    Alternatively they will supply and fit a CD player that will work with
    the remote display and steering wheel controls for £180. They have
    cheaper ones but they do not work the display and remote controls.

    Just make sure that the wiring has not been messed around with.

    all for the responses.

    A guy at work has the year after model and after going through his audio
    book for the car I may go for a CDR500. TRying the likes of ebay or local
    breakers if they have the security code!
