    I am trying to find where the fuse is for the cd autochanger, as I cannot seem to locate this in the glovebox area.
    The cd player has come up with a fault NO MAGAZINE, yet the magazine is loaded in the boot changer. This will not eject either, so I am hoping this is just a fuse.
    Does anybody know where this is located please?

    PS The radio and cassette player are working fine!

    You will have to press and hold the green eject button to force ejection.

    Not a thing mate. It just died on me when changing from CD1 to CD2.
    The radio & cassette work fine, so I'm thinking and hoping that there is another fuse somewhere thats caused it to stop working altogether.
    Its almost as if it has become disconnected from the power source.
    The error code NO MAGAZINE usually indicates this is not inserted correctly or not there at all. It was working fine until it went in for its MOT!

    Looks like the only thing to do is undo the trim in the boot and take check the wiring. Also, have a meter ready to see if there is voltage present.

    Mine does this quite often...pressing the green button wont eject it either,if you look closely you will see that one of the disc trays is jammed/stuck in position...so what i do is basically whack the side of the unit with my fist and this dislodges the disc tray in question...you can then eject it and replace,and then watch it go thru the motions...and hey presto,back to normal
