Clarion CDC1235 CD Changer

My Clarion cd changer in my 89 Saab keeps getting an 'ER6' code when I try to play a cd. My changer is in the glovebox. I put the cd in and it takes about 2 minutes, but nothing plays. It goes through its usual sounds when loading the cd but after about 60 seconds a code of 'ER6' is displayed on my radio face. What on earth is this? I hope you can help. The radio & tape player sound great but I want to listen to my cds. Thanks.

I would say to take it back regardless of what the problem is. I would say the unit is bad. Does the remote work the other functions? if it does not then the remote could be bad, if the remote does work the other functions, I would think the unit is bad.

Looking for the wiring diagram of the din plug on Clarion XM665 6 disk changer. fo C-Bus changers. I'm not sure if the one you mention is a C-bus or Ce-Net. But that info above is from a Saab website and all the Saabs in that generation used Clarion changers.

CDAC ER2 usually means a cd is stuck, not reading properly, or that the magazine is stuck or broken. take out all cds and try it with a known good cd (one that played ok in the past). if that doesn't work, try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in.

if it still doesnt work, take the magazine out, power it up so that you get the "no mag" error, then insert the magazine with no discs and see if it still errors out with ER2. if it does, then the magazine is bad, or the changer is bad..

if it works, then try the known good disc again, if it works now, your magazine was probably stuck, or one of the other cd's isn't liked by the changer.

hope this helps,
