First of all, the original OEM stereos and CD Changers in these cars are either Philips (early cars) or Sony (later cars) so if you have a Pioneer one in yours then someone has removed the Philips/Sony OEM unit and fitted the Pioneer themselves.

Sony car stereos use Sony's proprietary "BUS" system to communicate with other components (which all Sony CD changers and head units utilise). The Pioneer units use a different system so you would need a converter in order for the 2 units to be able to communicate properly, if such a converter exists that is.

I won't be posting on this forum any more. If you want to know why and/or you want answers to some 145/146 related questions then please feel free to pop over to and post on the alfa145.com forum where you will find me with the same member name.

I have now disabled all my private messaging options on here but you can PM me over on the alfa145.com forum if you need to.
