Default Alpine CHM-S630 Chamger Problem

I recently purchased this changer for my wife's PT. It works fine with the car on in accessory, but as soon as the car is started up & running it becomes intermitant & barely plays at all. I've been back to the stereo shop & we've replaced the CHYAS adapter twice & even tried a new changer. Same results each time. Is it possible I have an issue with the stock stereo?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Most RF CD changers has different station you have to use tr a different one. Make sure the ground is a good ground and doesn't turn to postive after the car is started and make sure you are using the right power and remote wire. I don't think your stock unit has anything to do with it.

Thanks for the welcome IRPT.

SwtNLwPT, thanks for the input, but unfortunatley this is a direct connect changer to the rear on the in dash stereo using the required CHYAS adapter. All the grounding is done directly back to the stereo.
But you have giving me some thought to the adapter, although the instructions don't specify that it should be grounded, it might be worth a try.
