Im not knowledgable about car audio systems, but i would check to make sure your deck/changer is clean. it takes very little debris getting into your changer/deck to foul cd deck mechanisms. if you dont regularly check the surfaces of your disks for prints/smudges/exc.. you can easily foul the deck by repeated insertion of dirty disks. it could be that an internal motor is weak, a tiny drive belt could be sheared, or a gear inside has broken teeth. the lens that reads the disk information (instances that the disk did load) can be fouled leading to messages on your deck face. both problems you mention , to me, seem to point to fouled internal mechanisms. if you have kids, they can do awful things to your car when you are not around. im a parent and i know lol. the only thing i know to suggest to you to slove these problems is if it is after market deck, you may need to remove it and take it to a repair facility because most cd decks at least the ones ive had arent shade tree mechanic friendly. if the deck is your factory installed, check your car owners manual for information. lastly, if it were me, i would use a multi-meter and check for proper voltage at the wire terminals. good luck!

I need to know what colors mean what, so i can hook my cd player up


Red - Power
Yellow - primary power must be joined to the red
blue - Remote
Black - ground or negative
To find your speaker wires check the color of the cord behind each speaker than match it with the same color in the dash.
or the easy way is to use a normal 1.5v penlight battery and try each speaker cord behind the dash and listen to which speaker give off a crackling noise so you can get the balance on the cd player right.
If u trying to find power in the car and don't have a tester than get a 12v light or bulb join the negative to the body and push the positive wire into each one of the holes in the factory plug in the dash one at a time until the light comes on. That is your positive the rest is easy. (DIY guru)
