Did you change the battery ? If so try disonnecting and reconnecting the CD changer.

One common solution is to disconnect the negative battery cable for 10minutes. When you reconnect, the stereo should reset itself and allow you to eject your CD's . Best of luck!

SOURCE: 6 disc changer will not eject cds==

I had the same problem for months. I checked the owners manual, checked the fuse box, everything I could think of. Then, today, I did some online research and someone said one of the CD's is probably just jammed or slipped out a bit. The suggestion was to gently slide a credit card over the disk (through the door/slot, which in my case was partially open). I just tried it. The door closed and the message said "initializing". It worked! The CD player is back to normal.

The CD player died. Probably the magazine (the thing that holds the cd's) isn't functioning properly, crooked inside the radio. Needs the radio repaired or replaced.

CD won't load into the 6 disc changer.


Try loading your CD into the first slot of the magazine. Be sure the magazine is completely seated in the player

My cd player keeps saying error but all the radio functions and inside controls are working fine. I looked and can not see any jammed cd's but i know that there are at least 3 out of 6 discs in the...


this means the cd mechanism is defective. Try to find a replacement.
If you try a salvage yard, you may find a bargain. I wouldn't get the radio from the dealer unless I had a lot of money to throw around for it.

It probably costs over $800 for the radio from there.
Salvage yards cost probably less than 1/4 that.

good luck
