I have taken it to the dealer twice for the CD 1 getting stuck when you try to eject it. It was under warranty both times and they said no repair was needed and that I needed to just fiddle with it when it jammed. It got stuck again today with CD 1 but now it says there is no CD at 1,2, and 5 but there are 6 CDs in the player as none came out. Now all I get is a CD ERROR...very frustrating. My GT is now out of warranty (of course) so I am guessing I'm going to get stuck with the bill on this thanks to my local Ford dealership not fixing the problem the first two times I reported it. Very frustrating!!!!

Steps as follows Take a blank/useless CD (such as AOL free trial CD's, you
can get them in a plethora of amounts in Best Buy) and place it about 1
inch deep into the slot.
Press the 'Eject' button and gently wiggle the CD around.
If this doesn't work, repeat and try to get the blank CD below the the
jammed CD, and gently pry the target CD upwards. Also, a good pair of
tweezers works well to grab the CD and pull it out.
Sometimes, unusual amounts of pressure may be on the unit, behind the dash itself. Have a professional or a friend that you trust remove the dash unit and try steps #2 and #3. Reduce electrocution risk by disconnecting all power
supplies from the CD player and make sure any electrical charge has been
I'm not sure of any tried and true way of freeing a jammed cd's but one I've used before is: with the player on take another cd (preferably one you don't care about) and slide part of it (about an inch) into the player and under or over the jammed cd. While pushing on the eject button "wiggle" the cd your using as an lever up and down and and this may free up the jammed cd. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Does the CD door open or is it stuck open? If it is open look to see if you have a jammed CD. This happened to me and this is what I did. A CD had gotten off track and jammed the CD changer turn table. I stuck a little key in the slot and was able to pull the CD out. This fixed my problem. Hope it helps.
Welcome to the world of gm delco radios. I am a used car dealer in Canada and I deal mostly in trucks and suv's. Honestly I'd say 75% of the radios in Gm's don't work properly, the loading mechanism gets jammed when you try to eject and "check CD" appears. Unfortunately it's not the CD, and to save yourself any further heartbreak, rip the player out and get yourself a good quality Kenwood or the likes.
I had the same problem. disconnect the battery cables. then reconnect them. this will reset the cd player and it should relaese all your cd player problems.
this happened twice to me and the above worked fine both times.
The only way to fix your problem is to have a radio repair shop take it apart. You cannot fix this on your own. Remove the radio or get a quote from a repair shop first. If you cannot find a repair shop , talk to the parts guys at you local ford dealer about sending it out for repair.
its a very common problem with g35 in dash clarion cd changer head units. a small plastic gear gets worn or brakes and wont eject or change cds. you need a new one, should be covered under your warranty.
My CD player jammed while testing it during my test drive (2001 GT), and they offered to replace it.
I found out that all of them do it. When I eject my disc, and it jams. If you look into the slot, you can see the cd. It is just not quite aligned right. Use your fingers to tap (as hard as you can) on the front of the deck. It should knock the cd loose, and it will come out. Works every time for me. Don't wait for the error to come up, as soon as you notice it didn't come out, do it, and it should eject just fine.
You need some special tools which slot in to the holes at the sides of the stereo, they release some clips and the unit slides out. Then you can take the cover off the unit and remove the jammed CD. These units are notorious for failure, especially the six disc stackers, and are probably not worth repairing, can be more expensive to repair than fitting a decent aftermarket cd player. Most audio installers or your local Ford dealer will have the tools to remove the unit, and if you just want the radio, you could remove the jammed cd and refit the stereo and just not use the cd player. You'll need to get the radio code from a Ford dealer to get the stereo going again if you disconnect and reconnect it. They may need the serial number off the unit to give that to you, and you may need to prove ownership of the vehicle.
