Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
The cd player plays for approx 45 to 60 seconds then the cds skip in aech of the 6 slots, then a CD ERROR message comes on in the dash, what can i do to fix this
Sounds to me like the lens assembly can't move freely all the way on the slider when reading discs. This will require you to open the cd changer unit completely to get to the lens assembly. When you get to it, check if there is anything jamming the lens from moving and the sliders, like part number labels that came unglued, screws that fell out, plastic pieces that broke, or even just leaves and branches and such. If everything is clear, then probably the sliders just need some oil and because of lack of lubrication, the lens assembly jams. Just regular sewing machine or electric motor oil will do the job quite nicely. If you don't feel like opening it yourself, you can always bring it to an electronics repair store to have it fixed. Other than that the only option would be to change the cd changer unit altogether. Hope this helps :)
