Hello Carl. You are already working on a problem on my behalf but I have another one which bothers me.It is somehow linked to problem nr.1.When I initially tried to hook up the power aerial I tried to find the control (trigger-)wire from the radio by trial and error and in that process I caused a short circuit.It blew a fuse (radio feed) and after replacing that fuse the radio display read:"pause" and nothing could be done, had it send out for repair and it returned"verdict not repairable".Radio is Alpine (Jaguar) part nr. LHE4100AA.Via internet found and bought same type radio (pretty rare find as this model was only used during 1 year for the 1995 Jaguar XJS Convertible.Radio bought came from wrecked car (same yr, make, model with only 20.000 miles on clock)That car had no CD changer in the trunk, whereas mine does.
The new radio tuner works like a charm, casette plays well however, there is no action whatsoever from the CD changer. When button on changer is pushed the rack holding 6 CD,s comes out, so it does receive power from the radio unit, but on the radio display nothing at all happens when button "disc"is pushed.Changer has no sep. fuse. Changer worked well with previous radio. As the replacing radio has never been connected to changer and had only served in a car which had an accident at 20,000 miles I cannot suspect that unit, particularly as the radio tuner as well as the casette player work fine! I did clean (thoroughly) the brass contact behind the removable radio front bu to no avail.
Cable and plugs between the 2 units in good cond; no damage.
I was so happy to have found a replacement radio and now, just before the holidays I got this problem. Could you please shine your appreciated expert,s light on this dilly?
I am anxiously looking forward to your reply.
