Skoda Octavia CD Changer - graham sherlock
Due to the rear screen washer feed pipe dis-connecting , the 6-CD changer connector got wet & corroded. After cleaning up (WD40 etc), it doesn't power up. I can't trace the fuse according to the manual to check it. Anybody know which one it is in the 'fuse-box'. Is there an internal fuse in the changer itself? The audio unit just tells me there's no CD's. It lies!

Hi Graham,
Like most things electrical, the motherboard generally has an on board fuse that no one knows about. Unscrew the case and have a look in the general area of the power supply leads and its my bet theres a little glass fuse sitting there thats blown. Many Microwave ovens end up in skips that only need a 50p fuse replacing because no one knows its there.
I assume you've also checked that the unit has power when the ignition is swiched on?
