2001 525i CD Changer

I want to purchase and install a cd changer for my 525i. BMW wants $900 to supply and install the unit. I can purchase one for $200, but will I be able to install in on my own? The unit says it has a basic installation guide, and I am pretty good with a set of tools. So will it be a problem?

The car is not going to recognize a cd changer until BMW dealership encoded your car for cd changer. They usually do it for free.

CD Changer not reading CDs


2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix.
p.s :
1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it.
2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up.
Good luck.

Would like to put the original CD changer/player


To put the original back in just hope the harness behind the radio wasant cut into. If its not it should just plug right in and mount back up in the stock location.

as far as the cd changer. if you would want to add one. you would need to find the changer, harness and headunit from a model with one.

...where is the **** cd changer/player in my taurus 1998 lx?


that cd button is for an external changer that you must install yourself. once you install the the changer then all you have to do is press that button and through the circuit you can get your cd music.in order to install the changer you have to purchase a link cable to the the vehicle from the changer. you will not have to cut or splic any wires at all get the connector cable and the changer and once installed your all set. the plug in for the changer is in the trunk of the vehicle. now you will not have access to insert the cds while driving because that is not how the system works in a conventional sense like a cd stereo does

No CD changer


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.
