2004 truck delco radio 5 disc cd player. cd


Common for the CD to get stuck on the Delco radio, Try resetting the radio by disconnecting the battery for 5 min and then reinstalling the cables. This will reset the radio and you should get your CD to work again, if there is an issue. You going to have to go to the dealer and they are going to have to use a Tech2 scanner to reset and reprogram the radio. If there is any mechanical issues the Tech2 scanner will identify the issues, but 90% of the time. It's just a simple reset and the other 10% is a reprogram or replacing the unit.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Try turning the radio off and then disconnect the battery for 1 min. After reconnecting the battery, turn the radio on and this might reset the radio and the CD may come out. Good luck and hope this helps and just make sure the radio is off or the radio may ask for a radio code to have it functional again.

I have a sony audio cd stuck in the cd player. Ejection error displays when ejection button pressed. How did I get it outwithout damaging player?


Try disconnecting the battery for 1 min and after reconnecting the battery, try ejecting the CD from the radio. This should work, and if it does not then it's mechanical problem with the CD player. Good luck and hope this works.

REMOVAL OF THE RADIO


Here ya go!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 60 seconds before beginning the remainder of the procedure, in order to disarm the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Using a plastic trim tool, remove the radio panel. Pry the lower part of the radio panel away first, then separate and remove the panel.

WARNING When removing and installing the floor console, do NOT allow it to bump against the SRS-ECU!

  1. For 1995-98 vehicles, remove the floor console assembly, as outlined in Section 10 of this manual.
  1. Remove the mounting bolts and pull the radio receiver, tape player or CD player out slightly. Detach all harness connectors and remove the unit from the vehicle.

CD stuck in CD player. Cassette and radio works good. But CD stuck.


This symptom is often a sign the player is nearing its end of useful life. But, sometimes it is merely due to a collection of dust, dirt or a foreign object lodged in the mechanism. Sometimes it is a logic error inside the electronic memories.

So, there are a number of possibilities.

Here is what I would do:

ONE: Do NOT force it or use tools to pull the disc out.
TWO: If you can find the wires that supply the 12 volts to the unit, pull that wire so there is no power to the unit whatsoever for at least 30 seconds. That will reset the electronics inside the player.
THREE: IF you cannot find the wires, or if they are too hard to get to, you can pull the plus cable off the battery; raise the hood and with a wrench loosen the bolt holding the plus cable onto the battery terminal. Pull it off for at least 30 seconds or longer, then put it back on. This will perform a hard reset as in TWO.
FOUR: If still no removal try this technique:
http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Stuck-CD-from-a-Car-CD-Player

If it is not an expensive unit you may find it a superior investment to purchase a new player rather than pay a tech to repair it. (In the worst case the unit must be pulled, cover removed and disc manually removed; then you may find out there are damages or defective circuits awaiting further repairs; probably looking at a charge of $75 or more if you go to a service shop).

Let's hope the ideas above kick it out and it returns to normal useage.
