Will a 2000 neon radio fit in a 1994 Caravan?

My daughter has her OEM radio that was swapped out for a real one. I'm an AM, talk radio guy with a dead radio. Is it an easy swap?
TIA

Most of the Chrysler radios used the same mounting convention from the mid 1980's until the late 1990's. For your van, there are two mounting tabs. The first one is located in on the upper right corner, and mounts to the right. The second one is located on the lower left corner, and points down. If your Neon radio is setup this way, it will probably work. The Stratus/Breeze/Cirrus, has a lower mounting tab points to the left.

If her's is an Infinity radio and yours was not, you can't swap them since the wiring is different. (plugs are the same, though, but electrically they are different)
I have a OEM Chrysler AM/FM radio, non-infinity that I picked up at a wrecker for about $5, I don't know if it works. It was an opportunistic grab since I can't use it in my vehicles (both of which are Infinity-wired). Your welcome to it if you need it.

Thank you, Hers is a CC model P04858584AH. In the rear, it has an 8 pin connection and 2, 7 pin connectors, 1 for feed (Gray) and the other for speakers (Black). There is a threaded hole in its upper center and 2 prongs, whose purpose I'm clueless to, on the upper left rear. The antennae connection is at the upper left, looking at the rear of the radio.

Hi,
That radio has the new style mounting tabs, the part # your giving, if this is a pic here:

Electrically it may work, but I do not believe it will mount in.
The threaded hole in the upper center is a mounting bracket hole. The 8 pin connector I believe is for a plug that can go to an optional amplifier or line in/out put. The 2 prongs go to a connector to the CCD bus that allow a chrysler drb scantool talk to the radio.
Here's the radio I have, notice the difference in mounting brackets:

This is the old style mounting tabs which is what you have in your 94. As I mentioned, you can have mine for free. I don't know if it works of course, no way to test. As long as your speakers do not say Infinity my radio will work fine for you.
There's a lot of OEM radios on Ebay, you can look at others to see what is out there.
I would also recommend you hold on to her radio if she doesen't want to. One of these days she will sell or otherwise dispose of her car, and at that time she will want to get her new radio back out, then you can put the old one back in.

That's hers, alright.

Yes, hers has 4 screw holes in the corners.

Thanks. The funny thing is that the bugger started working (I don't expect that to last). There is a Salvage Yd near by, so I'll check them out, but I'll most certainly keep your generous offer in mind.

make sure the problem is the radio ... there is a powered speaker relay that goes out and can cause the sound not to work ... In my case, for a 1990 I bought a replacement scrap yard radio only to find it was the relay. A fairly low cost and easily replaceable part.
