Look for small pinhole at front of CD drawer. Straighten a paper clip and push it in 'til drawer releases. Slowly pull draw out.

You will have to pull it apart to remove the cd and then get a drive belt to make it work
really more trouble that it is worth ( unless you like to tinker) so junk it and get a new one

Try the red to positive black to ground see if it lights up and eject, you can do this right off your battery posts or battery charger, better if you have an inline fuse just in case.

What's all need to install a aftermarket radio in a 05 Dodge caravan? Been awhile since I did it yrs before but the wife's van radio is going out CD player and radio itself


Radio, aftermarket radio kit(used to mount the radio), and an aftermarket wire plug. This plugs into the radio and your existing harness. Otherwise you have to cut and splice wires. I use a volt /ohm meter to cut and splice.

No prnd321 indicator on 2003 chevy


The fact is this, 2003 Chevy is not enough information to help you and i can not see it from here. However GM built many personalized owner controls for their owners that are adjustable through the radio. When you cut off the wires, you severed these features. you should reconnect all the wires, shrink wrap all the repaired connections and reconnect the oem radio, then unlock it. it should reactivate all the features if it is all done properly. I an guessing you have a cavalier or malibu.

2007 toyota camry cd player reading error 1


I had the error code no. 1 in my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has the CD radio unit with JBL system. It will not eject the CD, or play it. I removed the entire radio/CD unit and replaced it with a used excellent unit bought off of ebay for $100, and the replacement works fine. However the replacement is also 7 years old. Therefore I would not be surprised if it failed again. Prior to the error 1 I had intermittent error 3 codes, which had the same effect: no playing of the CD, unable to eject, and unable to insert other CDs. Sometimes the error codes would go away, and the function would be normal. But once it started, I think it was on a downhill path. A new replacement is nearly $2000. Used are about $100 to $200 or more depending on the seller and condition of the unit. Youtube has videos on how to replace the unit which only requires simple tools: it is not difficult but takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If you do it you have to put the car in gear to move the gear shift gate, which requires the car to be on, so you should have the parking brake on for safety. One alternative is to send your unit to a repair company but that might cost more than simply replacing the unit. Good luck!

I bought a 2001 Crown Vic Interceptor with everything in it. The horn wont work, though and i did a direct battery connection to a seperate battery and still nothing. fuse problem? and where is the fuse...


When they removed their wig wag and siren from my car, they cut the c.r. ap out of the wires. What a mess! Took a piece of wire (with both ends stripped) to test with... stripped a small area on each wire, and touched the test wire to the bare spot and the battery, until the horn sounded... that is the wire we used. Then, using a push button bought at Auto Zone ran a doubled wire inside the cab, cut it and placed one end on each side of the button... under the hood, one end of the new wire connects to the one that made the horn sound, and the other end of the new wire connects to the battery. Use electrical tape to cover every wire that was shaved, the ones used AND the ones not used. NOT PRETTY... but we have a horn.

Radio/cd player went dead. Tried replacing fuses


Do NOT Cut and Splice. Your local parts store sells an aftermarket radio plug in which connects to your factory harness and then you can splice in your radio into the new connectors ends that are labeled for what they go to.

1988 bmw 325si manufacture radio is missing but wiring cluster is intact apparently. Do i have to have a stock radio replacement or can i install a cd player deck without causing problems???


Generally you any after market radio can be installed into any car. You might have to cut the original wiring connector but basically all you need to hook up a basic radio/cd player is a positive and a ground wire. That's what powers the radio/cd player. Next all you need to do is hook up the speaker wires the unit. One other option is to check out ebay for a used radio/cd player. You will do better getting a radio that does not have an anti-theft feature. If it has an anti-theft feature you will have to enter a code to make it work.

Radio installation


I think it really depends on what one she has. Mine was the full unit with tape and CD. When I got my car the radio didn't work. I later found out that the amp under the passanger seat went bad and took down the whole system. Toyta, for some reason, ran all the key wires under that seat. Thats where the Constant, VCC (Key power), Remote, and ground. Then the amp powers the head unit. The person I bought mine from said that the radio started clicking in the speakers before it quit. If I would have just known to change the amp under the seat, it would have been much quicker. Hope some of this helps.

CD stuck in CD player. Cassette and radio works good. But CD stuck.


This symptom is often a sign the player is nearing its end of useful life. But, sometimes it is merely due to a collection of dust, dirt or a foreign object lodged in the mechanism. Sometimes it is a logic error inside the electronic memories.

So, there are a number of possibilities.

Here is what I would do:

ONE: Do NOT force it or use tools to pull the disc out.
TWO: If you can find the wires that supply the 12 volts to the unit, pull that wire so there is no power to the unit whatsoever for at least 30 seconds. That will reset the electronics inside the player.
THREE: IF you cannot find the wires, or if they are too hard to get to, you can pull the plus cable off the battery; raise the hood and with a wrench loosen the bolt holding the plus cable onto the battery terminal. Pull it off for at least 30 seconds or longer, then put it back on. This will perform a hard reset as in TWO.
FOUR: If still no removal try this technique:
http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Stuck-CD-from-a-Car-CD-Player

If it is not an expensive unit you may find it a superior investment to purchase a new player rather than pay a tech to repair it. (In the worst case the unit must be pulled, cover removed and disc manually removed; then you may find out there are damages or defective circuits awaiting further repairs; probably looking at a charge of $75 or more if you go to a service shop).

Let's hope the ideas above kick it out and it returns to normal useage.
