I have recently installed this cd changer in my car to a recomended panasonic radio unit, but i cannot control the volume of the cd changer cds, the radio itself is fine, but when i play the cd changer it stays at 1 volume and even though the numbers on the volume dial go up and down, the volume doesn't change until it hits '0' then it turns off altogether??
any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: volume is uncontrolable
Hi sounds like you have the audio out from the cd changer connected to the RCA/Phono out of the radio.
double check that the output from the CD changer is going into the correct phono/rca connector

sounds like the changer was plugged into the antenna jack of the radio. this means that you can run it through any radio simply by sending a signal to a preset station on the radio and listening to it through tuner. the control unit ran the changer itself. you may be able to obtain replacement cables from pacparts.com
My records do not indicate that they are compatible but are unclear, there may be some special connector used, none is listed however. Although if the cd changer is not a direct plug in, you can use an FM modulator. This device plugs in between (or wireless ones sit near) the antenna and radio transmiting a signal of it's own usually around 88.5 or so. Your cd changer or any other audio device plugs in to the modulator and it transmits the audio signal via an FM radio station. You then tune in your radio to the designated frequency and you're done. The only problem is weather or not your cd changer has a controller built in to facilitate this type of install.
Panasonic CD changers have a specific plug in that will not work with the Pioneer head unit. The Pioneer uses the IP-BUS plug. You will also not be able to convert the unit to work because the data between the two cannot be controlled and you won't have the ability to use the units together.
most chargers use the power from radio so if radio is working you should be getting power to changer bemore of a wire issue so you need to find out where power cable is going if seperate to radio possible it will have fuse and earth cable that could have come loose
you should have 3 leads going into you multi changer, two rca's and one bus lead. power up the unit and remove the first rca cable if the music goes off unplug the second rca and plug the first rca where the second was plugged in, if the music comes back on then the multiloader is working fine and you need to check the radio controller and its connections
