CD Player addition

Hi i am about to purchase a Volkswagen CD player to connect to my factory fitted Tape player.
The wires are all good for link-up but i was wondering as to whether the addition would require the radio code?
the cd player takes its power from the tape amp so I don't think it should make a difference, but, as i do not have the radio code, I feel slightly apprehensive just incase...

You shouldnt have any problems unless you disconnect the battery. Also if you havent purchased the unit yet i can get you a good deal on a brand new factory add on. I work at VW and have about ten instock that were ordered in error. I can also get you the code if you need it but I need the serial numbers on the side of the radio. Let me know

Wanting to install a cd player in a 1977 mercury grand marquis, wondering y an old tape deck will work but a modern day cd player will not. Is there a wiring harness that i can use to install a cd player?


Hi,

NO problem here, the supplier of the CD player will have an interface(wiring plugs adaptor) that will convert the original wiring to suit the (new) replacement unit. A good Auto Elec will also solve any problems but the interface wiring will illiminate all this. Good Luck

I want to change my original cd player for a pioneer


This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help

Factory Fitted CD player. 1994 Jaguar XJ6


i think there may be a fuse located on one of the wires thats attached to the radio itself, you will have to pull the radio to check it

Wiring difference


If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.
