996 pcm1 need help

Recommended Posts

I bought a 2001 996 year ago but never used the cd changer option till now and it doesn't work!.

Looks like the cd changer functions O.K ( loading the cds ). But when I push the cd button in the head unit, nothing occurs. Radio, Nav, etc, is working fine.

is there anyway to troubleshoot whether the head unit is malfunction or the cd changer unit or something I need to do in order to use the changer?

If I swap out the head with another pcm head, do I need a new code or I can use the existing one.

Many thanks,

Start with the simplest thing first. Check to make sure that the leads are connected in both the compartment near the cd changer and then at the head unit. The RCA cables may have been disconnected for an iPod or other AUX in adapter. Barring that, I wouldn't waste your money on a new CD changer- get an ipod adapter and an ipod.
