Try pulling the fuse out for 10 min for your radio at the fuse box. This should reset the radio, so you can get your cd to work again. If this does not work, then your going to have to bring it to the dealer to have them scan the radio and or reboot it to have it function properly again. It's common for the dealers to have to reprogram the stereo system on newer cars.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

SOURCE: first@gmail.com, 2006 malibu cd player keeps

Is it a burned CD-R? I know (this is probably the same on a 2006) that on my 2005 if you put one in, it will play fine then lock the disc in. There is a fuse pannel on the passenger side on the center of the console towards the front of the car. Just pull the plastic cover off. Find the 10A fuse by the little grey box, and a blue and white circle. (or just look for the fuse labled "RADIO" on the map inside the plastic cover and then locate it in the fuse box). Turn the key off, pull the fuse, turn the key back on for a sec and the radio will not come on. turn the key off, put the fuse back in and turn the key on. the disc should either come out or you will have to push eject. This may or may not work, some people say it doesn't work for them. (this may reset the radio number buttons memory). Hope this helps!

My 1997 chevy malibu's factory radio/cd player says error whenever I try to play a cd,what can I do about this and how can I fix it?


is the CD one that you made yourself or is it store bought? Have you tried other CD's?

If the error message is displayed when other CD'd are tried as well than there is a problem with the CD player. You can try using a CD player cleaning kit. Its possible that the laser head is dirty.

There are two other options if cleaning does not work.
1. you can pull the stereo and send it in for repair or replace it.

2. you can install an aftermarket stereo (usually cheaper)

Error message 05 in CD player of a 2006 Hyundai Accent. What does this mean? thanks.


Possible that the CD is jammed or that the CD is not reading so not playing.
If the CD is not working to read then the disc could be warped within due to heat and so not able to come out of the player.
If so tap slightly while trying to assist the CD to come out.

A few months ago...i had a cd stuck in my 2004 malibu cd player. I was able to remove the cd with tweezers, but now when I try to put a new cd in, whatever the thing is called that grabs the cd, won't...


Turn off the car (ignition switch off), pull the fuse for the radio, start the car (ignition switch to run), and put the fuse back in. Should completely reset the radio and let you eject the CD if it doesn't automatically eject it when the radio powers up again. Even with both the radio and the car turned "off" the radio still has power running to it, and it really isn't off, but in an extremely low power "sleep" mode (it's how the clock keeps running among a few other things).

The radio fuse should be a 10 Amp blade type fuse under the panel on the right side of the center console down in the right front passenger foot well. The panel pulls off and has a fuse diagram on the inside of the panel. Recommend using a flashlight.

This 'reading text" lockup is a known issue for that radio for CDs that have a large amount of "CD-Text" on them (an extension of the audio CD standard) in addition to the audio tracks. The CD deck and radio software were designed to handle a few kilobytes, but newer CDs often have more, much more, and it overloads the radio software trying to read it as it cannot store it all, and it locks up the deck. There was a radio software update fix for this that was rolled out to dealerships when these vehicles were under warranty, but apparently your radio was never reflashed or exchanged for one with the software update. I recommend seeing a Chevy dealership and asking to talk to the service manager about getting the radio updated or exchanged with the software fix . . . and they should do this without any charge as it was a latent defect in the radio software from day one . . . don't let them tell you the deck is broken . . . the problem is deck lockup when trying to read audio CDs with large amounts of CD-text on them because of a latent software defect in the radio (that was there from the day the radio was made). Only a few music CDs seem to have this problem, but it's a huge one with audio book CDs (books on CD) that have usually have many more audio tracks and much more CD-text compared to music CDs.

If you cannot get satisfaction after visiting two or three dealers, call Chevy directly and take up the issue with them . . . and tell them there should have been a recall to fix it while the vehicle was under warranty . . . but there wasn't (I believe there is a service bulletin though).

C D problems


Unfortunately the cd-lens are malfuctioning, probably, blocking also the ejecting tray. If so, yes it would be better to acquire a new one. As for the cd's You could, depending on the model, open the cd player but this would require special tools. The best thing would be, if you cannot open the cd player, to bring it to an authorized service, to solve the problem.

If not do so..... if it works then it is the CD.
