Re: cd stuck in cd changer
Turn off the Ignition so the unit goes dead and wait a minute. Turn on the Ignition (you don't have to start the car) and push the eject button, do not push the power button first, just push eject, if that did not work power up push eject , shut off and try to cycle it again. Quite often this works if the machine can but will not kick out the disk. If it is mechanically stuck that is another matter for a long slender nosed pliers.

I have this same problem. I've been told by a few people that I have to take the car back to the dealership and have them download a code to reset the changer. Apparently it has an anti theft device on it. I was told by Pontiac this costs 45 dollars. I refuse to do this. I think its a Pontiac scam. Why in the hell should I have to pay 45-100 dollars to have them reprogram the stupid thing because I changed a battery? Originally I just took it to the dealer and they wanted 100 bucks just to look at the thing. I told them forget it. I'd rather spend my 100 dollars on a new cd player set up than waste another penny on GM. So ********** with this scam.
2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix. p.s : 1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it. 2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up. Good luck.
I had the same problem. You have to take it to the dealer and they have a trade-in program. I forget what the price was, it will cost you around $400 and the unit they will put in is refurbished. But I have not had any problems with the refurbished unit. They have known about the problems with the CD player but it still costs the consumer money.
1800 BUCKS?!?!?!? Sounds like the dealer is trying to rip you off. Aint no way a replacement head unit should cost that much money. Best bet is too ask around and get prices for replacement head units or head to a car audio shop (a good one, not one of those "here today gone tommorrow" type places) and buy one. A good head unit should run you between 200-400 depending on the cash your willing to lay out for it. As far as the CD goes, chalk it up as a loss and buy a new one.
I had same problem with a 2005 Envoy in Jan '09. I took it to the ex-GM dealer. He said he'd try. The unit would only play using radio. Mechanic took unit out of dash, and top off of unit. Ejected CD bu moving the eject mechanism. Replaced top and unit. Works and plays cds. Cost $25.00 And i tipped the mechanic $10.00 for his knowledge.
The clarion 6 disk changers Suzuki used to use are notorious for doing that, mines starting to get flakey also. The others people are right there is nothing you can do to fix it. In fact I’ve heard horror stories about the dealers destroying customers CD’s trying to get them out. That’s probably why Suzuki got away from using clarion changers. If you don’t care about the CD’s that are stuck in the unit then pitch it in the trash and buy one of the Suzuki single disk mp3 players off eBay. Otherwise find a good electronics repair place and cross your fingers!
My CD player did the same thing on my 2005 Chevy Malibu MAXX LS. I know it sounds weird, but disconnect the car battery from the car (resetting the whole car system), and then reconnect. I pressed the eject button on the console, and it ejected my CD with no problem.
I have this same problem with a 2004 GTS w/ infinity 6 cd changer. I've taken the unit out and can't seem to find a way to get cd out without taking unit totally apart any leads on getting a replacement unit (not from dealer)?
