Re: 2001 Acura 3.2CL Problem BOSE System (CD changer)
I have the same problem with my 2001 CL. I first had the entire thing replaced by the dealership under warranty. But then the new one began freezing too. Found that if I give it a flick (not very hard) on the flap that covers where cds are loaded, it seems to un-jam the mechanisms. My original hitting caused more problems than necessary.

Try pulling the fuse for the cd changer with the ignition on, and then plug it back in. If you are lucky you might reset the unit, otherwise the changer will likely need removed sent in for repair or replacement.
yes ,but for the money it will cost for an oem style radio and the separate changer(oem) you can buy a good in dash cd player and the mount kit and wire kit and have money left- all connections will be simple- just follow instructions on packages
Hello my name is Ben. I have had 2 of these cars and they both worked the same. Once you load the cartridge with your CDs and insert the cartridge into changer and close that little door on the changer the rest is automatic. On the dash you will see two buttons to the left of the radio display. One says TAPE AUX. That is the button that switches from radio to the CD changer. Push the TAPE AUX button and the CD changer will play whichever CD is selected. The PREV button if pressed during the first 8 seconds of a song will go to the previous song, if PREV is pressed after 8 seconds it will go to the beginning of the song. The PROG button will go to the next CD. The NEXT button will go to the next song on the CD you are playing. The REV and FWD allow you to quickly move within a song, either forward or backward. If you have any other questions, just ask, I have the owners manual readily available. I know it should be in the car, LOL
you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 min. to reset the system. If that dosent work then you will need to send the radio into a repair shop to have them manually remove the cd and repair the changer. (the changers are very fragle and break inside) you can send it directly to alpine to be repaired.their number is 1-800-421-2284 ex 860304
As the consumer there is nothing U can do to fix this problem, the error code is for a radio technician with the right technical publications and tools to fix the problem, you will have to pull the radio/CD player and send it out for repair with an authorized Lexus sound system repair station.
Metra makes a preamp harness that you can use if you have the partial Bose system. My A4 had that (where the front speakers were run off of the headunit with speaker-level feed, but the deck put a line level signal to a rear amp to power the speakers). This harness would let you use the aftermarket deck with your factory speakers, if you have the partial Bose system. Best bet is to do a Google search for "Metra 2001 Passat" or something like that and I'm sure it'll show up.
