    I have no idea, but i would like to ask you about the performance of the vehical, i have a 2005 jeep cherokee standard 6cylinders laredo, does your jeep dash flash off and on at random time through the day,it didn't start out like this but gradually got worse till it does it all the time. I need to know if yours does the same thing or has it ever done it, and what do you think is the cause.

This is an easy fix. Use a flat head screwdriver andpry out the center stack where the heating and air controls are. this will just pop out. From there there are a few screws to to remove to get the cover off around the stereo.

I have a 2005 Jeep grand cherokee...with a 6 disc cd player. It has worked fine for 3 years since i bought the vehicle...(i used burned cds in it usually) and all of a sudden it will not play or read the...

this is a typical problem with the factory stereo. usually there is nothing you can do for the Cd player, because most likely a cd got jammed and broke or bent some internal components. however try usig a credit card to help eject. insert it partially into the slot and pull out if the cd tries to come out. if this doesen't work then you will have to have the cd removed by tearing it apart. this usually ends up with at least one or two scratched cds and a deck in a million pieces.

We just bought a 2005 grand cherokee with navigational system in it but it is missing disc where can you find these discs?

If you are wanting a 2005 Disc you can get it in a number of different places. ebay motors will have some. i have one inside the stereo that we replaced from a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with nav. If you google "2005 jeep grand cherokee navigation disc" you should be able to find a few good deals on a replacement disc. It will likely cost you about $100.00+.

    Replace stock cd player from one brand of car to another.

    Check at stereo sales/install place, or most auto parts stores have them now, and ask for adapter for wiring & plate for mounting in what ever vehicle you decide. It makes things a lot neater, & easier. Take player in with you to make sure, mounting plate is correct.
