    I have the same problem. It doesn't seem to matter if it is burnt or bought. I think it is a problem of the player getting too hot maybe. Seems like if I take turn the heater from the top of the car to the bottom, it is better. Not sure if that helps any.

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.

CD player in 05 chevy cavaliar shows ERR what can

you have a cd driver error and it needs to be repaired or replaced. repairing it is cheaper, and the cheapest solution, Our shop repairs these unit on a regular basis. If you replace it with another factory unit you will have to have it programed at the dealer for it to work. Aftermarket radio will require some skill o install. modules and accessories will need to be purchased. Not sure where you are but our shop is in Oshawa Ontario.

I have a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and just recently my cd player keeps saying error. even when there isn't a cd in it. and it keeps making the noise that there is a cd inside even when the car is turned off....

If it's a factory CD I doubt cleaning it would help. I went through quite a few CD players for my 97 Cavalier. I would just get an aftermarket personally.
