Sure do - that's what I have. Professional CD in dash (includes radio Rx module), MID below that and a 6-disc CD-Changer in the trunk (boot) on the left.

Does your Businesses CD-Player have the Fakra antenna connector on the back?


Iíll pull the spare tire and peek when I get a minute. Iím curious now myself. (Easier than pulling the cd, I think, since I donít actually have a spare tire)

I know the cd (in dash) was never a changer, my comment was the dealer had removed the changer (rear compartment) and offered to either replace it or credit me, I did t care about the changer so I took the credit.

Your probably spot on, radio unit is in the cd. I just found it odd that it also had (at one time) the cd changer installed.

There we go then

Iíll concede, you are correct, I was u see the assumption that the cd changer had the external amp and radio module. Knowing that they did run the combo pretty much answers the question. I must be losing my mind 🤪

Nope - you're just the same as the rest of us - trying to get our heads around the plethora of OEM stereo setups these things shipped with over the 6-7 years of production!

Ok. The battery pull might have done something. To answer some questions, yes the cd player has the antenna connector. I did pull out the white plug from the black housing and pushed in the extra white on in the picture to the left, no change. I was about to take the display unit out and decided to move the wires around and the unit pop on and off. I think I have it narrowed down to the unit itself. I can get it to turn on, play the radio, show stations, etc. But as soon as I push on the front to lock it in it goes blank. I think something is loose in side. I can pull it out again and get it to show the radio station and play music, but as soon as I try to push it in again and lock it into place the screen goes out, but still plays music, but can't change the station or volume.

My issue ended being the connection from the radio unit to the harness plug. I got it to work for now but it does loose connection. Need to find a way to tighten the connector harness contacts.
