    2002 WRX in dash 6 changer problem

    my wrx came with the indash 6 cd changer. it wont load any Cds, wont spit out any of the Cds that are stuck in the Cd player and when i press the Cd button, it doesnt play the Cds. Is there a fix for this? i am considering replacing the unit with an aftermarket dual din. but if i can salvage the stock stereo, it would be great

    All I know is 02-03 OEM CD changers have a tendency to fail.. I've had two in mine, both ceased working inexplicably. I believe there are people on here who know what the issue is, and possibly how to fix it, but sadly I am not among them.

    ^ thanks for the info. if the cd changer is the unreliable..i think i might just get an aftermarket one.

    That's almost definitely what I would do. Get a decent aftermarket double din, you'll probably be much happier.

    I am having an issue with mine as well. It will pay cds and eject them however it will decide when i get to listen to those cds and which ones will work. Sometimes disc 1 will start playing right away other times disc 1 doesn't work and it freezes then I have to turn off the cd player and try another cd. sometimes disc 2 will work other times some random disc will. I have changed which slots the cds are in and played them all in 2 other players so I know that they work. If any one knows how to fix it that would be awesome since I would like to stay stock.

    ^^ your lucky. so far ive only got to hear disc one once and then when i tried to change to disc too, it wouldnt switch. its ok..the radio will do til i can get a dual din. besides i like to listen to my ipod, i hate CDs and tapes.

    I do have my stock one still... Don't know if you want the 05-07 style CD changer or not. It'll fit though.

    they are both double din size... I just don't know if it'd fit flush or not. I don't see why it wouldn't though.
