    Need wiring Diagram for 6 CD Changer

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1999 1.8T


    My Passat was killed (another story) I removed the 6 CD changer (trunk mounted) before the car was taken away but left two CDs in the cart. I am looking to put power the the unit to eject the cart but do not know what color the Hot is (black)?? Assuming white is neutral. Does anyone have a wiring diagram that shows this and what voltage can be applied?

    Colors on the plug are:red, blue, white, yellow, purple, black, orange, brown, green.

    Anyone interedted in the unit??

    thx

    black is usually ground, and brown is usually 12V for VW. I'd hook 12 V betweeen those and try to eject.

    Like I said in the other thread, wouldn't power (12V) be the yellow?

    Oops, that the signal from the radio that turns the unit on and off. Hence the reason I tapped it as my REM lead from my amp. Jeez ...it's a wonder i get out of bed anymore.

    Go to your local VW dealer and ask them to pop the trunk on a B5 so you can plug in your changer and get a couple of CDs out?

    there is also a yellow or gray wire in the harness. try putting +12V to it as well (in addition to +12V on the brown lead and ground the black lead) - it is the remote power lead.

    if it works to eject his CDs, why not? but power applied to the remote alone won't do it.
    the reason I had him apply power first to the brown and black wires is it should have allowed him to at least eject the CDs.

    if that doesn't work, then I'd try 12V to the red and ground the brown.

    Phatbox (or CD changer) alternator whine fix.

    your post doesn't have the pinout per color as to what color wire does what, nor does it state which pin number has power, ground, remote, or signal.

    Sure it does... Pin 3 is ground, pin 6 is power, pin 8 is remote. Look again.

    Those pin numbers are visible directly on the connector housing in the trunk. You don't need wire colors, and I wouldn't trust them to be consistent, anyway. (I've seen at least two color schemes.)
