Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I installed an "Audi 6-disc changer" in my 2001 A6. The installation went without a hitch..connection and bracket mounting was fine... it performs as expected except it seems to be extra sensative to bumps in the road.. and consequently it frequently "skips" and is somewhat annoying. Any advice as to how to lessen the effects of these bumps and skips?

Most CD changers for cars have setting for the internal springs. The springs are postioned one way for a vertical mounting and 90 degrees different for a horizontal mounting. If this is incorrect, set for vertical when it is mounted horizontal or vice-versa, the unit will skip very easy.

I am not familiar with the Audi changers, I repair only aftermarket changers like Kenwood, JVC, Sony ect. but they all have a mounting direction setting on the sides of the changer. It can be adjusted with a flat head screwdriver. Try looking for this setting on the outside edges of the changer.

I hope this helps and a "FixYa!" rating would be appreciated if this free help solves your problem.

Thanks and let me know if I can be of any more assistance,

Dave

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

It sounds a lot like either the bulb went out or the fuse is blown. If there isn't anything else out it's likely the bulb, otherwise, check your fuse panel.

My A6 from 2002 has a 6 CD autochanger - the screen does not recognise that the cd's are loaded, saying four of the 6 are empty and not playing either of the others. Indeed the same info comes up on the display even if the cassette is left out. Any ideas?

Error 1 how do i fix (audi tt cdx-t69)


Hi,

It means that the CD changer is malfunctioning. Mostly happends after condensation, due to it's location near the taillight. Go in the back, clean any moisture, take out the CD, and re-insert it. Problem should be solved. Audi should put this as one of the most common defects between the 99-03 a6

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How can I find a replacement 6 CD disc changer for my Audi A6 (2005 model) please?


Most of the OEM headunits and changers are made by common radio manufacturers. Visit http://www.crutchfield.com and contact them. They make adapters that will interface an aftermarket changer to your factory system. if you could get me a model number and any other info offf of the radio and the changer I will research adapters and which brands and models of changers will work.
