What does this mean

    Is the flashing key on the cd player or off of it but near it? It's probably just your security light to scare jackers, or it could be your CD player is locked. Does the light continue to flash after the car is off?

The security feature is turn on and if the power to the car is disrupted the radio would not work without the code.

How to remove cd from blocked cd changer


To remove a CD from a changer that does not respond to the eject button: Look to see if there is a tiny round hole near the eject button. It will be as small or smaller than the diameter of a paperclip. If you see it then that is the CD release. You will need to find a piece of very stiff wire that fits comfortably in that hole. After you insert the wire you will feel it land against something hard in maybe about 1/2 inch. Gently press the wire and hope that there is compression of the switch which will open the CD Changer.

6 CD cartridge will not eject


If you are getting power to the unit and you hear it clicking and making a sound when you hit the eject button, the this means that a CD is jammed in the track and while it was changing it got stuck and now causes you to see an ERROR message.
What you do is while hitting the eject button, wiggle the CD MAGAZINE up and down and side ways. This will cause the CD to fall into place and your magazine will pop out.

Cds are stuck in the default cd player of 2001 Dodge Intrepid. How do I get them out?


The first step is turning the car off. Then before turning the key back on, push and hold the Eject button then turn the ignition on. If the CD fails to eject then you can use a old CD and try to insert it into the CD Player, just as it try's to take your second CD pull it out and hit the Eject button again. This will usually get a Dodge CD player to Eject.
If this fails then the CD player must be removed and a manual eject can be performed.

Cd player


Some Tips and Tricks that you can try:
  1. Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and, with no key in the ignition, pull the fuse out for a minute (or more - I've seen TSBs that say leave the fuse out for 10 minutes), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio presets and other settings. Make sure you have any codes for your radio that may be required since disconnecting the battery cables can cause the radio to quit working too. This fuse trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. Check your owner's manual - you may have more than one fuse that controls the CD and/or the radio and you may need to remove all the related fuses. (There's a "risky" variation of this tip described in the Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems section of the guide for attempting to fix a CD changer)
  2. Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again).
  3. Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button.
  4. If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
  5. Some players, especially aftermarket ones, use a CD cartridge or magazine. Tapping on the cartridge while pressing the eject button sometimes ejects stuck discs. CarSpace member Alwaysfords2 has been able to remove stuck CD magazines by using a piece of shim stock or a hack saw blade and going alongside one of the long sides of the magazine to hit the release. You can rock the magazine a little bit in the slot to see the mechanism and it should be easy to release - sort of like using the little pin hole on a CD drive, the magazine pops up as soon as it is freed.
  6. Remove the faceplace from your player (be gentle; something like a butter knife often works without damaging the bezel or breaking tabs). Then look for a tiny, usually recessed little button that you can press. You may need that unbent paperclip to reach the button.
  7. Find a coaster in your junk drawer - by coaster, I mean an old CD that doesn't work. Or use a blank one if that's all you have. Insert the coaster about an inch into the slot (yes, on top of the stuck CD). Then turn the ignition on and hold the eject button and wiggle the CD around. Don't be hamfisted - you're just trying to give the player some traction to help it eject the stuck one. If this fails, then try slipping the edge of the coaster (or something even thinner) under the stuck CD and pry it up while pressing the eject button. Again, be gentle - you don't want to ruin the player when a pro may be able to remove the unit and free the disc for $20 or so.
  8. Find a Popsicle stick or something thin but rigid and tear off a few inches of Scotch Tape from that roll you keep in your junk drawer (next to all those ruined CDs you intend to make Christmas ornaments out of some day). Put the tape on the top of the stuck CD using the thin stick to help attach the tape firmly to the disk. Like the hint above, the idea is to lift the CD enough to enable the player to eject it.
  9. At least one CarSpace member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard!
  10. Foreign objects stuck into the player, or CDs that miss the slot entirely yet wind up inside the unit usually require pulling the CD player to remove the disc.
  11. If all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.

Can't get a CD to eject on my '05 RAM 1500 RBK Radio


We have tried several of the solutions offered. (i.e. holding eject button down several seconds and then pressing again; inserting another CD into slot 1.5 " and using eject button at same time; pulling the fuse on the radio and waiting 10 minutes w/o using key in ignition and then reinstalling fuse. NONE of these worked. There's a certain amount of satisfaction to "fixing" a problem on one's own, BUT nothing we read about and tried worked. Since we bought the 2005 RAM just last week, we're going to take the problem back to the Dealer to fix. THANKS.

My Dodge RAM Car CD will play OK, but won't eject.


If this a CD with a paper label, sometimes they will peel up on the edge and not allow the CD to eject or in same cases the CD is slightly warped.
One thing you might try is this..... Get a flash light and try and look into the CD slot when the radio is trying to eject. There is a black felt type material that you can lift up slightly and if you can see the disc edge trying to come out it may look like it is very slightly too high and getting caught. You can take a business card and try and slide it above the CD edge from the side and this will get the edge of the CD to come down and eject. This has worked many times for me anyway.

MY CD CANNOT EJECT FROM MY 2006 MONTE CARLO HOW DO I REMOVE IT? THANKS


Without key in on position, press and hold eject button. Turn key on, this worked for me.

Remember not to leave CD in player if car will get hot from the sun. This could be wharping CD preventing it from ejecting.
