Is the CD one that you made yourself or is it store bought? Have you tried other CD's?

If the error message is displayed when other CD'd are tried as well than there is a problem with the CD player. You can try using a CD player cleaning kit. Its possible that the laser head is dirty.

There are two other options if cleaning does not work.
1. you can pull the stereo and send it in for repair or replace it.

2. you can install an aftermarket stereo (usually cheaper)

SOURCE: NEED 2007 CHEVY MALIBU RADIO CODE

I just got the code for my radio by calling 1-800-537-5140 and choosing the option for my vehicle make. 1 for chevrolet. then i entered 106010 for the customer # and then entered my serial # from the stereo and it gave me a lock code for free. Now i am just trying to figure out how to enter it since my manual tells me to take it to the dealership. Now that you have your 4 to 6 digit code, you can enter it by following the these steps. 1. Make sure your ignition is in the "on" position, but no started. 2. Press/Hold the "HR" button to set the first 2 or 3 numbers. 3. Press/Hold the "Min" button to set the next 2/3 numbers. 4. Press the AM/FM button one time. "SEC" should be displayed. You can now turn the radio on. Good luck!

I have a 2006 SS Chevy malibu. The screen on the CD player says CD changer error. The CD player doesn't work. I really would like to get this fixed so that it shows the time and temp like it should. Also...


Since the parts (whatever those may be) are not sold to the public only a radio repair center can fix this problem. There are many on the net that will send a shipping box and offer instructions on how to remove the unit from the car. Average cost about $150.00-$200.00

Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.

What's a good after market radio for a 2005 impala


there are 100's of replacement radios for vehicles, what you need to keep in mind is,,, if your factory radio has the vehicle info on the radio screen, its connected to the computer and all that goes along with it, I have an 02 Malibu, and had a new radio installed, But they had to route wiring to the trunk, ( thats where they put the factory radio and wired it in ) so that all my factory functions still worked, I was a little displeased with Chevy for having this attached to a radio, and since the CD player stopped working in the original, I was able to purchase a new radio, amp , and have it and the old one installed , rewired, and it still cost me less than Chevy wanted for a replacement of the old radio, Just due to the CD not working, so be sure and check around when looking for a replacement,

Stuck CD in the multi CD player of 2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx


The only thing that is left for you to do is to remove the stereo and then disassemble it and remove it yourself. A little daunting but needs to be done. Sounds like it went in wrong and then became jammed
