I had a 2000 Lexus RX300. It had a six-CD changer in the glove box. There is a cartridge that you put the CDs in, then insert it in the changer. If the cartridge is missing, you can buy one from a Lexus dealer for about $40. I have one listed on EBay now, and there may be others.

I wonder if the person you got the vehicle from knew there was no CD changer, but never look a gift horse in the mouth. Any brand CD changer should be able to work with your in-dash controller unit. You do not need to pay an arm and a leg to the dealer for a new unit, or risk purchasing a questionable used unit. I highly recommend Crutchfield.com for selection, price, and support.

    I did a little more research, and it looks like there are no aftermarket CD changers that will work directly with the controls on your in-dash unit BUT there are universal aftermarket units that will play CD's through your FM radio input. Crutchfield has the Sony CDX-454RF for $149.99, the Pioneer CDX-FM687 for $179.99, or a Sony CDX-565MXRF for $199.99.

Cd changer not playing


Check fuses. There are two fuses to this stereo. One that hold memory for the clock and stereo preset buttons and one for turning the stereo on. There are usually two fuse boxes, on inside the vehicle and one under the hood near the car's battery. Again, check ALL fuses. One is usually labeled for the radio/stereo, the other is not.
As for the CD changer, disconnect one of the main car battery terminals for several minutes. This is easier then removing the changer and acts as a reset. Possibley bringing the changer back to working condition. Otherwise, this could be a repair issue, see www.carstereohelp.com

6 disc CD changer is stuck


This happened to me a few years ago. It wouldn't eject the CD for a year. I literally smacked the side of the dash where the cd player is located and it came out the next time I pressed eject. I found that same solution in a couple of forums. I had to do it a few times. I think the CD just has to allign with something to eject properly.

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.
