My radio on 2004 cavalier just turned off one day. When I push the display button it shows the clock. I can eject and insert cd and it says check cd but won't power on. Then one day it decides to come back on. It has done this several times and is currently off again.

This worked on my 04 CTS. This is a CTS without the GPS.
1) Turn key to On or Accy
2) Wait for the radio/clock display to load up.
3) Push the Tune/Select button at the lower right of the radio display. Nothing will appear to change.
4) There is a button to the right of the radio diplay with two horizontal lines on it. Push the lower of the two horizontal lines. The clock set option should appear.
5) Turn the Tune/Select button until the time is correct.
6) Push the Tune/Select button to lock the time in.
If your radio works and you press mode .Does head unit recognize cd,s
It should display no cd,s cd error etc
The reason i ask this is to confirm that connection is ok to stacker
To eject PRESS AND HOLD eject button,insert credit card under cartridge,push fully in and move left/right untill eject
This will locate micro switch,so you can check discs
I take it the cartridge will not eject
If so press and HOLD eject button insert credit card or similar under cartridge push firmly in and move left/right
This locates micro release switch
Make sure nobody has inserted discs upside down
If you turn radio on then mode it should display cd,if not there is no connection, either power or ubi cable.The only fuse is on the back of the changer.You have to remove to access.I don`t know your problem but if your cartridge will not eject, hold eject button and insert credit card under cartridge push fully in and move left to right this will locate micro switch.
Two solution proposed on other forums:
1. Hold 'eject' button for 10 seconds. The system should eject the cd.
2. Slide a credit card back and forth on the cd opening. Push eject, the cd should be ejected.
Hope it works.
Welcome to the world of gm delco radios. I am a used car dealer in Canada and I deal mostly in trucks and suv's. Honestly I'd say 75% of the radios in Gm's don't work properly, the loading mechanism gets jammed when you try to eject and "check CD" appears. Unfortunately it's not the CD, and to save yourself any further heartbreak, rip the player out and get yourself a good quality Kenwood or the likes.
Sounds to me like you've got a fualty radio. maybe your clock radio was staying on and thats what drained your old battery. I would remove your radio and check the wiring. make sure you don't have any rubbed through wires or anything. If there's no evidence of faulty wiring then try a new cd player. After all, it could be an electrical issue inside your cd player. hope this helps ya out. O and by the way your clock light should be a yellow wire in the back of the head unit i beleive. the yellow wire is constant power from the battery specifically for the clock. you may also want to check your orange wire. that wire is an illumination wire for the radio. hope this helps
