I wondered if anyone knows what CD changer will work with the standard
clarion cd player in the Citroen C2, I've been looking at a few clarion
changers but don't want to shell the money out if its not going to work.
First of all, get the model number for the radio/CD unit.Then do a Google
search for that number AND cd multichanger.
You will probably find that you will need an interface box to go between the
two if its anything like my 01 Xsara. Otherwise ask the nice people at
Citroen, they will be very happy to relieve you of your hard earned.
From what I've read on a C2 forum, only the in-dash changer sold at the
dealership will work. It has a slightly different model number to the
changer that you can get anywhere.
You will need the dealership to reset something too, because the CD player
won't find it otherwise.
Thanks for the reply's
I've also been looking at a few sites and it seems that although the stereo
is a clarion it only accepts the official cd changer which is
I think only other option is to stick my JVC MP3 player in cause i'm not
shelling out for the official changer then paying my local dealer to
reprogramme the head unit.
If you are changing the head unit from standard, you need a special wiring
adaptor (available from dealer - around £3) or the locks/alarm (if you have
one) will play up because it will think you are listening to the radio with
the engine off and unlock the doors when you have armed the alarm.
The power/remote/lights wires are not in the order that all other cars are,
but that gets corrected with wiring adapter too.
I think thats the way i'm going at the moment, this 'adaptor' would it also
power down the head unit when the ignition is switched off cause ive tried
my JVC stereo in the car today (before I read your response) and it doesnt
turn off when you turn ignition off. I thought I was going crazy when I
returned to the car and found out the locks didnt work and the key seemed to
be turning the stereo on.
