    I have found hanging in side my boot a Gathers auto disc changer GZC 9100 I found the other end behind the radio, it is a round plug with multiple pins, there is nowhere on my radio for this to fit any ideas guys or is this another JDM experiment for Cyprus?

    Hi Brian,

    Gathers seems to be a Japanese brand, never heard of them myself:

    Gathers Radio and CD - JDM EK9 Honda Civic Type-R Forum

    So maybe your car had the matching head unit at some point, but its been changed.

    If your car is a JDM model, Japan domestic market, it was probably as used import from Japan. Strange as I thought Cyprus got its cars from the UK, so you would have thought it would be a UK spec swindon accord.

    No chanc of that Richi Cyprus gets it's cars from any where its the cheapest, although they are in the common market they still charge import duty, cash no cards or a brown envelope job will do. I thought the same and on these roads I would think it would jump around to much any way to be of any use, so I think I will take it out. On the point of my gearshift not moving out of park with out using the key slot emergency do you know if there is a solinoid some where that may have stoped working, there used to be a pronounced click when i press the brake pedal, now there is no click, I thought it may be the TCM "Transmission Control Unit" but i'm having my doubts now because its a printed curcuit board and there is nothing on it as far as I see that will click in and out, but I check the switch first, any ideas just throw them this way guys.
