The reset for the radian/cd to work needs to be done by the dealer.

How to fix nissan pathfinder cd player

Not sure what you mean. What are you wanting to fix? Buttons, the display, the c/d player? You're probably better off buying a used one, or going with an aftermarket unit. Our c/d player stopped ejecting disks and wouldn't play, so I installed an aftermarket double-din Pioneer unit. Plays DVDs and I installed a backup camera. You need to be a little tech-savvy to do this.

After Market Radio Installation

Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

I have a 2006 volvo s40. Rrecently the 6 disk changer cd player displays disk unreadable.... for all six disks slots. Any ideas what to do??

Hi, I am a service advisor at a Volvo dealership. First thing to do is buy a cleaning disc kit, this will be a kit that comes with supplies and a disc that you will insert into the cd player. The purpose of this is to clean the disc reading lens inside of the player. I have seen disk unreadable many times. The cleaning kit I suggested is the only thing that can be attempted to fix your current cd player and the kits are inexpensive so you should try that. If that does not correct the issue then the internal fault in the player is too much to be fixed by simple cleaning. Unfortunately if that does not work the only other option is replacement of the factory player, there are no internal repairs that can be made to the Volvo players so you would have to order and have installed a new Volvo unit. If you have to replace the unit Volvo decks are expensive. You can go to a good stereo shop and have an aftermarket deck installed for a fraction of the price. If it comes down to replacing the player and you choose and aftermarket shop to install different deck, insist that they do not turn on the ignition to the car until all wires are connected. When players are being put in shops often turn the ignition on to test power supply as they work on the install. As strange as it may sound the computers that run your entertainment and information are connected to the same network as the airbag computer. If the ignition is turned on while parts of the radio are still unplugged the car will read an error on that network and you will end up with a SRS service urgent message on your dash, which only a dealership can clear out. This is all the information about the player systems. If cleaning does not work and you have to replace unit and choose to us aftermarket parts and shop just use what I've told you. If you end up with a SRS message afterwards it is the stereo shops fault and they should pay to have light reset. Hope this helps and good luck

Thebestplayert@269My Factory Radio display has stop working.But it still plays sound.Can i replace this with an aftermarket stereo or do i need to buy the same stereo that is in it now?

First make sure the key is pushed all the way in the ignition, I have had other cars that if the key was not pushed in all the way the radio display would not work. If this is not the problem, I would replace the radio with an updated aftermarket radio/cd/mp3 player. I have a newer Grand Marquis and the radio went out so I priced used replacement radios and they cost as much as an aftermarket radio. You can find these at any car salvage yard (junk yard). A used radio would be easier to install as you would just have to plug it in using the same cables in the back. To install an aftermarket radio you will need one or two adapter cables and will require splicing wires. I have installed quite a few radios and I opted to do it myself. You can have the radio installed by a dealer but installation cost run from $75.00 to $125.00 depending on type of car and radio. If choosing an aftermarket radio make sure the look will fit the car. You may not like the look of something with widly glowing LED lights a few month down the road. I am very pleased with the unit I purchased as it looks more like an OEM radio and doesn't shout steal me at car thieves. I can play mp3's and plug in both ipods and other compatible electronics.

technically you can install any radio in any car. first off i would check places like best buy for a easy wire harness and a dash plate. if you can track down these 2 things it should be as easy as plug and play. directions will come with the product.

CD Player Rejects CD's

The dealer fixes a very steep price if not under warranty. If out of warranty i suggest you look into aftermarket stereos. Try a reputable stereo shop that won't rip you off.

Some cobalts have the controls on the radio - some on the steering wheel depending on your trim level.

After you have the 2 side panels off - the radio trim will simply pull off in the same manner.
