Citroen Saxo CD Player will not play when engine running

I have a Citroen Saxo Forte 1.1 fitted with original CD/Radio player. When the engine is off, ignition key turned to battery power position, the CD Player recognises the CD and plays. When the engine is started it will not play the disc. If the engine is started before the disc is inserted it will not play and ejects disc. Does this sound like I need a new Radio/CD Unit or is this something more worrying? Any advice gratefully received. Thanks

    I have the same problem, but with a Citroen Dispatch CD Player. Very annoying. Not sure if I am best just replacing CD player, or if there is a way to fix the problem? Any help would be great! cheers

The car stereo has 2 +12V inputs: the constant batt input and the key in one.
So actually the stereo is always connected to +12V, even in standby.
When you turn your key, the key in input also starts, thus starting your stereo instantly.
When you turn the ignition on, the key in input is switched off for a couple of seconds, so that all the power goes to starting your engine.
After that key in input should be back on - this is your problem here.

One possible solution would be to cut this wire out, and split the RED battery +12V cable so that it enters in the key in input as well. Check wiring diagrams!.

Test this with cables out (without reinstalling the whole thing back in) and if it works.......leave it and put everything back in.

Only downside is, you have to turn off the radio by hand when you exit your car - or you could lose all battery power !
