How do I insert more than 1 cd in my stock radio?

I bought the jeep a few months ago and just tried to figure out how to insert more than 1 cd in the stock radio. The original owner told me that it is a stock 6-cd changer in the dash. I can't figure out for the life of me how to insert more cd's. Please HELP! I'm pretty sure it's a multi-cd stereo, but maybe the original owner lied?

If you do have a multi Cd Changer, you would have to first put in the one cd then change to the diffrent cd selection then put in a cd. But iam really not sure if Jeep made factory 6 Cd changers in dash. You will have to consult someone else. But I know thats how Factory units work for dodge chrystler and jeep.

I'll be honest, I checked out Jeep.com and compared X to Sahara to Rubicon, and none of the new models even come with that as an optional feature. If you have a 6CD changer, chances are it didn't come stock.

I have an 04 with the subwoofer. On the #1 preset button, it also says "Disc" with a down arrow and on the #5 preset button, it also says "Disc ^"

TJs did have an option for a 6 cd changer. In my owners manual, there is a diagram on how to use it.

I belive it was a button below the volume control, that would allow you to insert more than one. Ill have to look at the manual when I go back out to the Jeep.

I have an 04 with the same thing, but it also has navigation. Those buttons work my external 6 disc cd changer, I do not have an in dash changer.

one of our vehicles has a cd player that has the disc ^ and down buttons.. also has the 1-6 for the cd select.. but it isnt a 6-cd changer.. its just cheaper for them to design the same cd player face for all their cd players

Unfortunately, my TJ did not have the manual when I bought it. Please let me know what the manual says about inserting cd's?

I was afraid that the cd stereos would all look the same on the outside...I hope that's not the case.

When I bought my Dodge Ram there was an option for a 6 cd changer, the head unit controlled it but the changer itself was mounted under one of the seats.
I believe the Dodges and Jeeps use the same radios.

yeah its an external 6 disc changer. it went in the center console if it was installed. sometimes it will have the radio that is ready for a changer but no changer installed.

So I guess I don't have an internal 6-disc changer?

Time to get an aftermarket stereo. Do any companies make a fairly plain looking, in-dash stereo with a multi-disc cd changer that is the same din as the TJ? What size din is the TJ?

I guess mine isn't a 6 disc cd changer. I tried this, but it won't switch to insert another cd.

If you remove the radio and dissassemble the case to the radio, you can manually remove them. I have never done this on a chrysler stock radio but I have done it on aftermarket models (sony, blaupunk, etc.)

I have an 05 and replaced my single with a 6CD player. Got it off CREIGS LIST for 60.00. Noone makes a 6 cd indash unit except OEM.

Why use multi-CD changers now? Just rip the CD's and use an MP3 player. No skipping, no changing CD's, it is just easier.

Did we just travel back to 1999? Heck my phone has 16gb's of storage, I don't own a mp3 player or a single CD.

The TJ's have a 1.5DIN unit. I don't know of any in dash aftermarket changers off hand. But like others said, use an MP3/iPod with an aftermarket deck.
