Ok, there has been a discussion about this over on g6performance.com.

Here is a copy of the service bulletin one of the guys there dug up:

#PIC4509A: Radio Displays Changer Parked Message - keywords battery CD display int intermittent intermittently no owners park radio - (Dec 27, 2007)


Subject: Radio Displays "Changer Parked" Message


Models: 2004-2007 Chevrolet Malibu

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic

2005-2008 Pontiac G6




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This PI was superseded to update models and model years. Please discard PIC4509.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:
A customer may comment that the radio will display a "Changer Parked" message intermittently at times, and there is NO explanation in the owner's manual for this message.

Recommendation/Instructions:
This message will display after the CD mechanism has initialized or when you manually park the CD mechanism. Initialization occurs normally upon a battery reconnect. The mechanism will unpark itself once you press the CD load button.

Note: After pressing the CD load button, you will NOT get a message that's it's unparked.

I have a 2000 beetle with fixing in the boot for cd changer...will any changer do, not sure what i should be looking for! Thanks


Likely have a Monsoon radio system in your 2000 Beetle. The CD changer is controlled by your radio, and not any CD changer will connect to the outlet in your trunk. You can either find a CD changer on eBay (or elsewhere, or swap out your radio for a radio from a newer VW Beetle that has a CD player installed instead of the cassette. Can also find those on eBay.

Cd changer doesnt work


This sucks on multiple levels. If you have the 6 disk CD changer that is part of the Monsoon sound system upgrade, these radios are expensive as all hell to try and replace, not worth it. The really crappy part is that EVERYTHING is controlled through your radio; trip odometer, fuel economy, oil life, and a multitude of of other settings. If you dont mind not being able to see all that stuff, or see any warnings that may come up on the display, then by all means go for an aftermarket deck, but you will probably want to mount your factory radio in the trunk if you ever have to change a setting, or if you had to ever reset your anti theft if it ever becomes activated. The other fun part is that if you have the Monsoon system, wiring your aftermarket deck can be a pain in the *** as monsoon speakers run both a high +/- and a low +/- set of wires, that is why its very expensive to replace a monsoon speaker if you blow one as aftermarket manufacturers do not make them, and or are where you were before, spending alot of cash.
