Cd Changer 2001 Is300


Recommended Posts

Hate to say it, but yes it is common, and no it isn't cheap/easy to fix. As Ian said, it's easier, and cheaper, to replace the whole headunit, but get one with the same model number (bunch of numbers printed on the stereo, usually on or near the display, depending on model).

I'm sure I've read on some of them, if the CD changer is showing and error code ("ERR3'?) then it won't even let you use the external CD changer, if you have one, which will also stop you using an iPod/iPhone kit (which sjrainsford mentions), because it also connects to the external CD changer port. Best check on that one before deciding to buy one (these devices are made by a few companies, the two preferred ones being 'Grom' or 'XCarLink', and both do the same function - fool the HU into thinking it has a CD changer connected to it, allowing you to use an iPod/iPhone, or USB stick, or Android device (depending on what model you buy), and use the HU controls for volume, skip, search, random, and playlists. Great little box of tricks; I've a Grom unit in mine and couldn't live without it, as EVERYTHING I listen to is on either my iPod Classic or Iphone - can't remember the last time I actually put a CD into something to listen to it!
