My Jeep Grand Cherokee has a RDS radio with 6-disk CD changer has stopped working. The radio works fine but the 6-disk changer does not opperate. When I press the "Mode" button to select the 6-disk changer it does not respond. Every time I open the car door I can hear the CD changer tring to changes CDs. This stops after it tries once.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get my CD changer working again and get the disks out that I have in the changer?

I just took off my stereio from my jeep and ten disk cd changer and had a connector loose for pulling on it. Check under the dash below the steering column.Their are connectors check if any are loose. I do my own work so i can save.
The in-trunk units have a tendancy to go bad. you can take the cover plastic interior cover off to access the CD changer, un bolt the changer, and visualy inspect the two rollers for debris, or missing /broken gears that move the rollers to take the CD from the CD cartrage to the player. if that looks fine, chances are that the laser went bad (common in rear mount units) and you can order a new one from Jeep, or you can remove it and update the in-dash head to an aftermarket of your choice (& yes you steering wheel controls will still work). you could also fit a more modern MP3 unit where the Changer was.
Does it still say disk error if you change disks?
If so, first guess would be that either a disk is inserted upside down in it's slot or the disk is too scratched up for the player to read.
But if it was playing that disk when you shut the engine off and said disk error when you cranked up again, it could be a fault in the player.
Sometimes CD player "eyes" can get dirty too. I don't know if this is your fix, but I hope it helps a little.
sounds like they may have forgotten to take out transit plugs from radio which holds cd mechanism in place when shipping unless you got a new radio thats a dud? but that may also mean dealer didnt check operation of new unit after replacement if replaced which is what usually needs to be done when this error message comes up
Well if you didn't already know all jeep chrysler dodge factory cd players don't work very well. I have sprayed high pressure air into mine and it has help but may not solve the problem permanently. I would suggest buying a new cd player. sorry
in most cases the wiring is already there, it is cheaper for the manufacturer to use one harness than many different ones, I know this is true on GM and Ford, should be the same with Chrysler products as well.
BE SURE THE CD THAT CAUSED THE PROB DIDNT HAVE ANY TYPE OF STICK ON LABEL THAT MAY OF COME OFF INSIDE, ALSO IVE SEEN CHILDREN PUT COINS IN THE CD SLOT IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN. MAY WANT TO TRY A CD LENS CLEANING DISK PROB FIND AT RADIO SHACK OR BEST BUY TYPE STORE.
