    did what you suggested during the course of the last 2 days. first,trying another cd results in it not going in very far, and even as i push down during the eject process results in no change.your second suggestion about a cd fuse causes me to question your knowledge of the model of vehicle i reported i am working with because there is none.please offer a: 1.solution that i can do to fix my problem. 2.refer me to someone more familiar with my model vehicle. or 3. start the process for a refund.



    thanks

    i disconnected negative battery terminal as you suggested and left it off for about 5 min. when i reconnected,of course the factory alarm went off, but no change in cd problem. when i used butterknife i was was quite timid and delicate to insure i caused nodamage. one thing i did notice is that my pre set stations remained.my experience with older vehicles is that info is lost after battery disconnect.anymore suggestions?taking a trip on fri. budget is tight so i have faith you'll come up with the answer.

Hi,

Take another CD out (one you don't like, it may get scratched) and when the little flap is open as you press Eject, just stick the other CD in on top of the stuck one and push down. Usually, after a few trys the CD comes right out. It only happens to me once in a while, and it is a PITA but this is an easy way to get it out.

OR

I searched quick and couldn't really find anything on a manual eject button. Flip through the manual a little bit and see what it has about the radio. If all else fails and you aren't worried about possibly breaking the stock cd player, some skinny needle nose pliers should reach in far enough to grip the cd and you can pull it out.

OR

Try removing and reinstalling the underhood radio fuse first. If the cd player comes to life, you're good to go untill the next time it happens. If you want it fixed for good you will need to get the cd player reprogrammed by the dealer Thank You

I am a dealer tech and as familiar with this problem, the CD loading mechanism either has a broken or slipping eject/load mechanism drive belt or the loading/unloading mechanism is broken due to a part failure, there is nothing really u can d but pull the radio out and send it in for repair to an authorized GM repair center, DON'T GO THROUGH THE DEALER, THEY SEND THEM OUT AND THEN 2X THE REPAIR BILL TO U, THEY ALL DO IT, MY DEALER DOES IT AS WELL. Below is a site that can repair your radio at a much cheaper price or exchange it for a quicker turn around.
They can also most likely help u with the removal process. I trust them.

I was reading one of your replies to another response. Did you say that you have the CD out of the deck?
Since you are technical, can I ask if the cd has been released by the spindle before you pull it out?
Just need to know how I can proceed next.

    Can I also ask if there was anything on top of the CD that was burned, like a label or something that may have altered the thickness of the CD?

    The "butterknife" or prying the CD out is a last resort, as it can cause damage to the clamping mechanism or the spindle. Have you tried to remove power from the deck? I would recommend disconnecting the negative terminal on the battery for 1 min or 2 then hook back up and see if the deck will reset and eject the CD.

    Let me know where you are with these suggestions.

    I have worked with factory decks from many different vehicles and some of them are no fun to even open once they are out of the dash.

First@gmail.com, 2006 malibu cd player keeps the cd, doesn't eject or take the cd, but plays fine. Is there a part I can replace myself?


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 Cd player in my 2004 Jeep grand cherokee laredo wont eject the cd. It recognizes that there is a cd there and will even play the cd when i press the mode button but it wont eject it. Any help is...


I have an 05 jeep grand cherokee and the other day when I went to hit the the eject button on the CD player it automatically went straight to the radio. After I restarted the vehicle I could hit mode and it would begin to play the cd again but if I tried to hit eject it would go to the radio again. It doesnt have a disc changer and everything else on the factory head unit is working find, the radio, all that stuff. I didnt want to start tearing things apart or trying to dig it out. I have sees some others with the same problem on here, but the answer are like "dig in there with tweezers" and I dont think thats the best possible way to solve the problem. Any Ideas?

Turn the radio off first and then disconnect the battery for 2 min then reconnect the battery. This should reset your radio and then you can eject your CD, and reset your stations and clock. Good luck
