Jeep spitting out tape adapter

When I put a tape deck adapter for my ipod in the tape deck it will switch from one side to the other before spitting the tape deck back out. I know it isnt the tape deck because i have tried a couple different ones.
I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee 1998.
Ive read a few different things like removing spring roller bits in the tape deck or overriding the tape automatic sensor.
What should I do, and how can I fix this?
Thanks!

Jack up your Cherokee and look underneath for a wiring harness that leads to a sensor that is between the engine and trans. This is your crank sensor. Pull it out and check the condition. Mainly look at the wiring harness to the sensor. These Jeeps have a habit of breaking and your Jeep with just turn off going down the road. These wiring harnesses are available at the dealer and are fairly inexpensive.

If they have not changed the design, the retaining spring is part of the "extinguishing bar" (where you put cigarettes out) the clip tends to lock in the down position and needs to simply be pushed back up to engage the retainer in the dashboard opening

This cannot be done. That is the type security it comes with. Except you wanna remove it totally.

Cheers.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2. I have a tape adapter, every time I put it in the tape player is spits it out. It will go in and out three times. I'd rather get this fixed than go buy a whole new stereo installation...


On the tape adapter you have to switch the side the wire comes from. The zx2 reads the cassette in the opposite direction than how the tape is normally played. Had the same problem and ended up breaking my radio try to force the tape to stay in :(

E 10 tape deck error/ tapes keep spitting out


The radio checks to make sure the drive capstan is turning - if not, gives the E10 error. Either the drive belt in the radio is slipping or the drive wheel in the adapter is sticking. If it does it with a real cassette, then it's probably the drive belt. If not, you can try to figure out why the wheel in the adapter is not turning freely.

Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

You will probably have a problem finding any parts for this tape player, you can remove it and have it fixed if you can find someone that still fixes these. My advice is to either get a new stereo with cassette player or find a used one on ebay.

Those adapters are barely functional at best. You will never get good sound, even if it was working perfectly. I tried one but then bought an aftermarket stereo.

I own a 1997 Ford Taurus. I am trying to use a tape to mp3 player adapter in its tape player. When I push the tape in the player, I get a "TDE3" message and the tape spits out. I tried using another tape,...


It's the tape deck there must be a tape that got caught inside and is wrapped around the capstan or the heads and the radio stays on because the switch is not activated by the deck lowering down far enough you have to take it out and clean it and look for any tape or other obstructions that would stop the mechanism from working including the belt you may need parts and a 20 year old radio there hard to find try the junk yard for a replacement but you can operate yours with the cover off if you can get it out far enough to see inside while it's on and that will help you find the problem but first bring it inside your house so you don't loose parts after cleaning with alcohol and derusting if any and a light lubricant you might be lucky see what happens I also use an adapter for my cell phone music in a 2007 bull and I also did it in an 87 bull with a cd player so I know what your talking about also make sure the adapter wire is not hanging up when pushing it in good luck also brand new replacements might be the best way to get the music you want they have auxiliary input jacks for cell phone mp3 players but try to fix yours first the learning part is priceless for the future radios you will own

Cannot play ipod on 2000 malibu using tape adapter. malibu has cd player and remote tape deck


Instead use a radio adaptor where you would set you radio to a particular channel. The adaptor emits a signal correspondent to that radio signal and allows you to listen to your iPod.

Tape Deck does not recognize tape adapter. Does not eject.


Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

Cheers !
