Question about 2000 Isuzu Trooper
I have a 2000 Isuzu Trooper w/ a factory installed 6 disk CD changer. It was working fine and then one day I put a CD in the changer and it wouldn't play.
The player shows that the CD is in slot two and that all the other slots are empty (which is correct). However, when I attempt to play the CD or eject the CD it will do neither. I decided to just let it keep my CD but then it started making a clicking sound each time that I turn the car on. The sound seems like the changer is trying to eject the CD but it's not able to. The clicking was 30 seconds and is now up to at least 2 minutes of clicking when the car is turned on. After that it beeps and then does nothing.
I have attempted to 'reset' the player by pushing a button in the inside left of the player w/ a bobby pin (as suggested by a friend who works on cars). That didn't eject but caused the clicking to start agan. I also tried to stick another CD in and loosen the current CD hoping it would eject, but no luck. Lastly I unplugged the battery to reset the player - again nothing but clicking.
Can anyone tell me how to remove the CD and/or remove the CD player to get the CD out. I can't afford a new CD player at the moment and would just like to stop the clicking sound!
I just removed the 6-disc player from my 2001 Trooper. To remove it:
1) Remove the two screws above the radio area in the black faceplate
2) Remove the one screw located between the ash tray and the lighter.
3) Remove the four screws (two on each side) from the front center console cover and pull it back (you will need to shift into 2 or L)
4) Pop the black face plate off (there are some metal brackets holding it on that need some light force to pull out. Nothing should break)
5) There are two screws for the CD player and two screws for the radio. Unscrewing them will allow you to pull out the radio and disconnect the smaller CD wiring harness, then you can pull out the CD player.
When I unscrewed the CD player unit, I found that there are six plastic halos that hold each disc and move them up and down as selected. These had broken in some places and the discs had dropped to the bottom and stacked, so nothing could move...hence the clicking sound. Because there was a severe jam, nothing else could be loaded either...hence the error message. I'm attempting to superglue the pieces back together to see if I can reset it. Otherwise, I'd recommend you replace the unit (most likely what I'll do).
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: how do i find a
you can go and get an after market one form walmart or your local sterio shop and they can also install for you. If your looking to get the sterio that comes stock in it you may want to go to the junk yard and see if you can find a wrecked 2001 Isuzu Trooper that you can get the cd player out of
