Question about Toshiba Sony CDX454RF CD Changer

1 Answer

Tuning problems I have two things happening. When I shut my car off the changer stays on. It never did that before. Also, the changer is set to 88.5 frequency. When my radio is tuned to that frequency it no longer works. For some reason the changer works somewhat when my radio is set at 97.5, yet the changer is still set for 88.5. This just started happening out of the blue. Any ideas?

Re: tuning problems

Hi, This sounds like an inshop repair. The technical term for the changer being set to 88.5 but works in 97.5 is "frequency drift" and could be rectified with the use of a calibrating instrument/frequency counter and an alignment tool assuming no component replacement required. Frequency drift can be caused by component failure, humidity, temperature etc.; The part "my car off the changer stays on" could be faulty trigger on inside the changer, faulty remote trigger on in your head/radio/controller unit. Good luck and hope this gives you a few ideas. Kind regards.

All lights stay lit on my CD changer when I turn off engine and remove key in my 2006 Maserati. Battery went dead, I think, because of this. One person who came to change battery said that when the...

the lights might be staying on because the remote wire is hooked up to the 12 volt constant or battery wire instead of being hooked up to the ignition wire.and i have never heard such a thing of when the battery gets low the computer can cause the lights to stay on that is BS. I hope I have answered your question.

Ford focus , how i install cd changer?

You must have the same type that will mate with the set in your dash . If so connect the changer with the multicore cord, connect the power and mate this with the main set and use the power from the car system. If you are going to use a universal changer with an Fm transmission then connect the changer and power the set to the accessories outlet. Tune your car audio to the freq. of the changer and there you are. Helpful? Good day
