The same thing happened to me when my 05 colorado was new. If you play homemade cds, that have the old paper labels, they get stuck in the player. sometimes if you take the player aprt and get the cds out it will work again. But I have seen them get ruined from this also and have to be replaced.

I have a 2005 Jeep grand cherokee...with a 6 disc cd player. It has worked fine for 3 years since i bought the vehicle...(i used burned cds in it usually) and all of a sudden it will not play or read the...


this is a typical problem with the factory stereo. usually there is nothing you can do for the Cd player, because most likely a cd got jammed and broke or bent some internal components. however try usig a credit card to help eject. insert it partially into the slot and pull out if the cd tries to come out. if this doesen't work then you will have to have the cd removed by tearing it apart. this usually ends up with at least one or two scratched cds and a deck in a million pieces.

CD stuck in CD player and won't eject.


Disconnect the fuse for the radio. This is cause the radio to reboot. You do not need to mess with the battery. After replacing the fuse, or removing, it, and putting it back in, you can proceed to try to remove the CD. I used a pair of tweezers.I actually jammed two CDs into the player. Hope this helps.

I had this say problem with my 2000 solara. Here is the fix, remove one of the car battery terminals for a couple of mins (3-4mins). The reattach the battery terminal back. This would make your cd player and car clock reset. once you start your car you should be able to eject the cds. You'll just need to reprogram all your preset radio station. Hope it helps
