My standard Radio and 6 dash mounted cd changer has all completely stopped working! It won't even turn on. I've checked the fuses and they are all fine.

The CD player stopped working a few days ago, then played for a day only on 1 cd slot, the other slots didn't work, and then it stopped working completely but the radio was all ok. Now yesterday the radio stopped and now won't turn on at all :eek:(

So its completely dead. Great fun for the day trip to france yesterday! not.

Has this ever happened to anyone on here and ther was a typical fix as i can't believe the whole thing has just packed up after 24,000 miles on a 53 plate.

Thanks for your help! :)

thats a new one on me, i would have said fuses..failing that pull the stereo and check the cable connection on the rear for a stray/pinched wires ors bad insertion of the connector

you could always use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a double din sat nav/dvd?

Cheers mate, does the radio pop out easily? I cant quite see which bits to pull off and I don't want to destroy trim pulling it out.

I love the idea of it standard as it doesnt attract tea leaves and i'd rather spend the money on some arb's and track day wheels for the ring!

Remember that the radio has an extra fuse in the back, people normally check the ones that sit on the side of the dash.

you should be able to get pullers from the local stealership, the head unit and the changer are 2 seperate units but are joined via cables so once you release the top one pull it out about 1-2 inches then release the bottom one then slide them out together at the same time
