My 04 WRX Cd Changer

Post by 02SilverWRX » Tue Mar 18, 2008 11:02 pm

Yup, thats right i bought my 04 WRX today and am trading in my 02 silver wrx & i was aware of one problem which is that the cd player doesnt work, i can still listen to am/fm radio and do anything else i just cant listen to any cds, load cds, or eject cds... it just doesnt even acknowledge that the buttons are there! When i turn on the car it makes a clicking noise between six and ten times and then stops... Anybody heard of anything like this? please let me know!

That's my thought, but how to get it out? If you remove the head unit there may be a "release" of some kind somewhere on the unit.

Yea, that sounds like a stuck disk or gears off. Is this a changer or a single disk?

It is a changer, i think there might be something stuck in there but i no sure how to check because none of the buttons work, now i have a larger problem though because my car is in the shop since a loud grinding noise in the turbo and the car does not start! Soooo... i am out of luck.

Hey guys, so i decided today to buy a new head unit for my 04 since i cant stand the sound my oem stereo makes when the vehicle first turns on. Just wondering does anybody know where i can find a walkthrough on what to wire up for an aftermarket deck? Its a very basic deck, just plays cds, mp3s, radio, and couple other things..

All of the wires are color coded and labeled, so I wouldn't worry too much. Check out subymods.com for more information!

but a harness from Crutchfield or Best Buy. should be about $15, worth 10x that in saved trouble.
