I would start by checking all of the factory fuses there should be some in the fuse box, one in the back of the radio, and I believe there is one on the cd changer not sure about that one. When checking the fuses you should check for voltage on both sides of the fuse with a digital multi meter when the key is in the on positon. Also to get the radio out you will ned a set of european radio keys you should be able to get at an autoparts store for around 5-10 buck

My CD players says check magazine when magazine is already in there.....


My 1999 Beetle did the same thing. I didn't have any luck repairing it, even tried a different magazine but nothing helped. Fortunately I found someone local selling a used trunk-mounted CD changer for $10, so I bought that and it worked like a champ.

So for me, I ended up having to replace the CD changer to fix this problem. Hope you have better luck.

Trying to add a VW CD changer from a 1998 NB into a 1999NB.


If it is a factory changer and you are using the factory wirng harness, I'd recommend going through the fusebox and looking to see if there isn't an empty space for a fuse for that purpose - sometimes the fuses are not installed for items not included in the car at the factory, so yes there probably is just a fuse that was never installed....

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.

Battery drain


My wife's 2001 Jetta TDI had the same problem. First we changed the battery. (It was just about due anyway) No change. We then traced the power drain to the in-trunk mounted CD changer. This was an aftermarket CD changer but we went to the same source that the VW dealership uses. Of course one blames the other. The CD changer was even replaced with no change. If we are not using the car for long trips we unplug the CD changer and no more dead battery! Neither the VW dealer nor the AV installer could give us a good working solution to this problem.

Cd changer not playing


Check fuses. There are two fuses to this stereo. One that hold memory for the clock and stereo preset buttons and one for turning the stereo on. There are usually two fuse boxes, on inside the vehicle and one under the hood near the car's battery. Again, check ALL fuses. One is usually labeled for the radio/stereo, the other is not.
As for the CD changer, disconnect one of the main car battery terminals for several minutes. This is easier then removing the changer and acts as a reset. Possibley bringing the changer back to working condition. Otherwise, this could be a repair issue, see www.carstereohelp.com

Have you checked the fuses. Usually under the dash or in the glove box.

Cd wiring


On the 2005 Beetle, it's not in the trunk, but in the center console under the arm wrest. There is a special CD Changer that fits that spot that plugs directly into the plug under there. I've bought two off ebay for my wife's beetles and they work great!
