    we are getting 12 volts to a cd auto changer but when you press source button the changer is not working.i have the sony explode 6 disc changer wich is mounted in the rear of the car

    does the control unit (main head unit in the dash) recognize the multidisc CD changer? in other words, are you able to toggle between the 6 disc changer, single disc changer, radio, etc?

    also, are you using original CDs in the 6 disc changer? not sure if CD-R or CD-RWs will work in this model changer.

Hello There.

My guess would be that your sat nav was retro fitted, i'e not factory fitted. Who ever fitted it didn't use the correct wiring harness. It seems they may have used a wiring harness which didn't have the connection for a CD changer.

If you want to get this fixed you will need to replace the wiring harness which means stripping out the entire interior of your car, i.e seats, carpet, door panel. or you can live with the single CD which works.

If my answer has solved your problem, please rate me on fixya.

Thank you

Got a 3 series BMW and the cd multichanger is not working. Every time i put discs in it reads ''no discs''

You can try running a cleaning disc through it.
But it's likely the changer has failed. A new one will need to be installed.

My Bmw 325 SE cd player wont work...but the radio is working

   The carriage inside the cd player is half way in mode.  Which means the cd has to be removed mechanically.  In order to do this a qualified technition needs to dismantle it.  On some models there is a reset switch next to the eject button on he changer.  It will be very small.  like the size of a paper clip hole. push in with a pin.  Otherwise go to stereo shop
