IF you used a knife to attempt to remove the second cd that was stuck and the blade went UNDER the cd, it might have hit the the head of the cd player and shorted something out. IT might have also cause the head to be jammed and it wont move. The only thing that you can do now is remove it.

That appears to be a low tire warning light. If all your tires are correctly inflated it can be canceled by depressing, and holding for about 5 sec., the button by the parking brake lever. It should clear next time you start your car.

often times this problem ends up needing a front sunroof section of the conv top replaced. The cable that drives the hooks to unlatch is most likely broken and that is currently the only fix. EXPENSIVE. Sorry

Hi,
The motor gear and the gear railings might be dirty and needs a new lubricant! Sometimes the alignment of the gear railings hampers the movement!

Have you checked the fuses? If fuse has blown, double check the connections as sometimes vibration can cause loose wires to blow fuses.

No sound is coming out of the speakers when I turn the radio on. Is there a fuse that might need to be replaced? The radio display is working so I think it might be the speakers.


The radio has a amp. fuse built into the back of the radio. Cant tell you how to remove the radio without
more info about the car and the radio. The fuse is blade type located next to the control plug.
This could be your problem as blown speekers still make some noise normal sound is crackling if blown
hope this helps

Stock radio 01 eclipse radio turns on, cd plays but no sound from speakers. any thoughts


Assuming you have checked your wiring to the speakers and they are all intact, you are looking at an amplifier failure.

If you have the inifnity system there is an external amplifier under the passenger seat. You can check it's fuse in the fuse box on the drivers side dash endcap. The fuse holder is an add-on fuse holder to the right of the block (as you look at it), not in the main fuse block.

If the fuse is blown, replace it, but likely it will blow again. The external amps have a very high failure rate and unfortunately are quite pricey.

If you do not have the amplified system, the radio internal amplifier has gone out, and the radio will need to be sent out for repair or replaced.

Cd player


Some Tips and Tricks that you can try:
  1. Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and, with no key in the ignition, pull the fuse out for a minute (or more - I've seen TSBs that say leave the fuse out for 10 minutes), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio presets and other settings. Make sure you have any codes for your radio that may be required since disconnecting the battery cables can cause the radio to quit working too. This fuse trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. Check your owner's manual - you may have more than one fuse that controls the CD and/or the radio and you may need to remove all the related fuses. (There's a "risky" variation of this tip described in the Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems section of the guide for attempting to fix a CD changer)
  2. Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again).
  3. Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button.
  4. If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
  5. Some players, especially aftermarket ones, use a CD cartridge or magazine. Tapping on the cartridge while pressing the eject button sometimes ejects stuck discs. CarSpace member Alwaysfords2 has been able to remove stuck CD magazines by using a piece of shim stock or a hack saw blade and going alongside one of the long sides of the magazine to hit the release. You can rock the magazine a little bit in the slot to see the mechanism and it should be easy to release - sort of like using the little pin hole on a CD drive, the magazine pops up as soon as it is freed.
  6. Remove the faceplace from your player (be gentle; something like a butter knife often works without damaging the bezel or breaking tabs). Then look for a tiny, usually recessed little button that you can press. You may need that unbent paperclip to reach the button.
  7. Find a coaster in your junk drawer - by coaster, I mean an old CD that doesn't work. Or use a blank one if that's all you have. Insert the coaster about an inch into the slot (yes, on top of the stuck CD). Then turn the ignition on and hold the eject button and wiggle the CD around. Don't be hamfisted - you're just trying to give the player some traction to help it eject the stuck one. If this fails, then try slipping the edge of the coaster (or something even thinner) under the stuck CD and pry it up while pressing the eject button. Again, be gentle - you don't want to ruin the player when a pro may be able to remove the unit and free the disc for $20 or so.
  8. Find a Popsicle stick or something thin but rigid and tear off a few inches of Scotch Tape from that roll you keep in your junk drawer (next to all those ruined CDs you intend to make Christmas ornaments out of some day). Put the tape on the top of the stuck CD using the thin stick to help attach the tape firmly to the disk. Like the hint above, the idea is to lift the CD enough to enable the player to eject it.
  9. At least one CarSpace member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard!
  10. Foreign objects stuck into the player, or CDs that miss the slot entirely yet wind up inside the unit usually require pulling the CD player to remove the disc.
  11. If all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.

You could always check the fuse first if that was not done. Then check the connection at the radio. Good luck

I have only seen this problem once and the only fix was to replace the cd player. I would suggest to get an aftermarket cd player from electronics store and have them install it. The factory option is over 700 installed. sorry
