E39 CD changer plugs pinouts

Recommended Posts

Does anyone happen to have the pinout for the two cable looms running into the CD changer? It should be the same on E39, E38, E53 etc with 6 CD changer.

 

The 535i I picked up over the weekend has had a hatchet job by a previous owner to use a mini jack cable in place of the CD changer audio and I want to revert it, but they hacked off the 6-pin plug which goes from the changer and carries the audio to the stereo up front.

 

I can't find the plug or pinout online so will have to make up a pin carrier to plug it back into the changer.

Replying to meself...

 

Found it in ISTA, maybe it will help someone else one day. Part no. X01038

But still can't find the actual plug anywhere, I guess either a breakers or bodge one from the parts bin.

Having looked at your pinout above, it's not strictly correct!

 

You'll find only three wires (maybe 4 in older cars).  

 

The pinout is :

 

1 : Left + (white)

2 and 5 : Common ground. (clear)

4 : Right + (black)
