My 6CD autochanger is shot, I have not been able to get to a auto-sparkie, but it is getting worse!
However, I have found a website that sells compatible MP3 autochangers which I am seriously thinking about getting to replace the 6 CD changer in the boot. Do I have a standard 932 stereo? I don't want to make a costly error!
Might be worth pulling the head unit out to confirm the make, think some earlier ones were Alpine, but I think as stated by BB from 2000 on they were Blaupunkt.
One question though as I have never had a CD changer in a car is how do they connect? does the changer pass a digital signal upto the head unit or decode to analogue and the head unit just amplifies that. Reason I ask is the CD changer there says it is MP3, but does the headunit need to be MP3 compatible? or does the changer do all the conversion?
edit: Just looked at the sony one for later models and read 'Sony MP3 Changers can mount in the boot, glove box'
Glove box, in a 156. Lucky to fit a just a CD in there
It is fixed, the alpine 6 CD changer was not stuffed at all. My local ICE dealer unplugged it all to get a part number off of it to quote for a replacement. When they put it all back in the player started to work fine. The dealer commented that the plug lead wasn't a tight fit and was now. It appears the cable had come loose which gave the random error readings. All fixed, not cost a penny, all is going well so far, no skips etc!
