  • Wanted...97 VW Jetta CD changer Pin outs

    I looked around here and on vortex and have been unable to find a diagram of the pinouts for my cd changer connector (it is the round one not the square one) I wanted to tap into this so I could avoid the losses with tape adaptors and fm modulators. I would do it like I normally do...cut all the wires and start trying all combinations, but 81 possibilities and the likelhood of be blowing something up I thought I would ask first. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks in advance.

    If you post a photo of that connector it would help. I think it is a DIN8 connector right ?

      here is the connector it has 13 pins on it arranged in three rows of 4 and one single pin. The CD changer is VCD-550. I thought I had found a diagram, but it was the same connector different year so different pinouts.

      Also, if anyone has a way to test which ones are the audio outs that would help as well.

      Thanks

          Well,
          I never saw a connector like this. I think you should go from the headunit. Here is the info:

          This also would help.

          Just match the colors coming out from the HU to the CDC. It should be a snap.
