Hi, is this Cd changer in the trunk option?

it's a Mercedes CD player

Okay, without a factory scan tool the best you can do is remove the plug from the CD changer and leave it off for about 10 minutes (key off). This will cause it to " reset". If the radio doesn't recognize it after that then the radio needs to be checked to see if it is programmed for a CD changer (sometimes they lose their memory) . If it is programmed and the connections are all tight, the CD changer is likely bad. (fairly common)
