The solution is to disconnect the head unit and the cd changer from each other and from the car itself, leave it for ten minutes. reconnect and turn the ignition on but not the car itself, enter radio code if has one and all should work.

Hi, I know this is an old post, but I'll reply, so that other readers may get the benefit of my answer.
2004 was the year that Peugeot/Citroen changed from VAN bus to CAN bus wiring on their stereo's. If your car is before or early 2004 you will need the IDC-A09 blaupunkt in dash changer, which should just plug in and work straight away.
However, If your car is later 2004 onwards you will need the IDC-A04 Blaupunkt changer which will plug in and power up, but will not work properly untill you go to a peugeot dealer and they hook up some diagnostic software to tell the car a changer has been added. Both the IDC-A04 and A09 changers look identical.
I would say that you got the wrong changer, as the IDC-A09 changers in pre/early 2004 should just plug in and work.
Remember: Pre 2004 cars need IDC-A09 (plug and play) and Post 2004 cars need IDC-A04 changer (get pug dealer to reprogram cars computer)...its a costly mistake if you bought the wrong one!
You will need to remove the set from your vehicle and remove the lid and remove the cd's manually without forcing them, you may have to do a little dismantling to get at them, then reassemble and plug the power lead back in and that usually solves the problem
Blaupunkt supply a repair kit for this unit, this basically is a fix. but only works for 8 out of 10units.
its a pain to fit too.
you have to replace the 3 spindle guides and arms. the part number is : 8619001490 there a reall complicated thing to fit.
i am looking to get a install guide sorted. and will soon be selling the kits on my website www.carradiospares.co.uk
Hi firstly, thease units dont like cdr's at all so if you have cdr's in it then that could be 1st part of problem. there is a reapir kit out for them, but only fixes 8 out of 10 units.
other than that its a bin job. as a new mech is 160.00 fitted repair kit is about 60.00 plus the vat fitted.
