Faulty CD player. Can it be repaired or replaced without replacing entire radio? If replaced, what can it be replaced with? Is the car's clock part of the radio?

You can try to get it repaired, but a used unit will be cheaper and probably live longer.
The unit is modular in that the radio and cd changer are two separate units. A ribbon cable and some screws connect them. If you are able to get just the changer part of the same year (TL/CL) it will work.
Clocks are independent if they are housed outside of the radio unit.

2001 nissan maxima CD player reads ERR when cd installed. Will I have to replace audio system?


Is it a CD-R or WR? Older cd players often won't play CD-WR's, which is the case with my 01 Maxima. Try popping a CD-R in there before replacing the entire unit.

How do i replace the bulb in the digital clock on a 96 (s reg) honda civic thanks


Hi,

The digital clock assemblies are a single unit - if the LED panel inside the clock fails, then you would replace the entire clock assembly.

Ensure you check the clock fuse hasn't blown, before suspecting the actual clock as faulty.

Cheers,

2006 grand cherokee cd player dont work


There are two power sources for your radio...one is full time and powers the clock, the other is on the accessory side...only hot with key on. check that power supply. Remember...fuses dont wear out...they blow for a reason. If you find a faulty fuse replace it...if it blows again, it is because there if a fault somewhere.

Problems after car battery replacement


Sounds to me like you've got a fualty radio. maybe your clock radio was staying on and thats what drained your old battery. I would remove your radio and check the wiring. make sure you don't have any rubbed through wires or anything. If there's no evidence of faulty wiring then try a new cd player. After all, it could be an electrical issue inside your cd player. hope this helps ya out. O and by the way your clock light should be a yellow wire in the back of the head unit i beleive. the yellow wire is constant power from the battery specifically for the clock. you may also want to check your orange wire. that wire is an illumination wire for the radio. hope this helps
