My CD player did the same thing on my 2005 Chevy Malibu MAXX LS.  I know it sounds weird, but disconnect the car battery from the car (resetting the whole car system), and then reconnect.  I pressed the eject button on the console, and it ejected my CD with no problem.

There is really nothing you can do but pull the radio/CD player and have it repaired, I would not go through the dealer, the price for the repair will be double that you would pay if you gave the radio to the shop and bypassed the dealer. Contact your dealer for a phone number of an authorized GM repair shop.

My 2003 ford crown Vic pol. Interceptor is turning over but not starting-any ideas ?

It's a 2003-- 13 years old. At this point in your cars life is pretty much when things will appear one at a time. If you are getting a racheting sound when cranking it could be your battery has almost no power to uphold a startup. But it may be something else. My advice is that you perform a continuity test with a Probe Light Tester but this testing time can be lengthy and could possibly consume 2 hours if you are a novice. My second advice to you is that you buy a cheap $35-50. vehicle scanner available at your local Auto Parts Store. This scanner communicates with your cars computer and will read any error codes that may be disturbing to your engine. To learn more about How to test your car for No Start / No Crank-- watch the following video: This next video is an OBD Error Code List Page. just click on your specific vehicle and search for the numeric code and click on it. When you click on the error code number the results will come up indicating the hindering malfunction.

I have a 2005 Malibu with a 6 disc cd changer, I know the changer has 5 of the 6 disc inside it. A while back it started clicking. I removed the fuse and left it out because there was a smell like and I...

There may, or, may not be a small pinhole in the front panel of the changer. If it does have this hole, take a paper clip and insert it straight into the hole and this will enable manual ejection of the disk tray. If the hole is not there than the housing has to be removed to gain acess to the disks. Thank you, Dana

How do you clear a CD changer error code on a 1998 Ford Taurus radio? The radio displays DJ (probably for disc jam). There are no CDs in the changer. I cannot get the CD player to power-up because of the...

You can look in your owners manual, usually there is a little card in there that gives you your radio code to push into the radio, If not you can call your local Ford dealership and give them your VIN number of the car and they can give it to you. also if you wanted to go to the extreme measure you can pull out the radio from the dash and most of the time the code is printed on the radio.

Good Luck I hope this helps.
