The belt has come off the moter pulley inside the tape transport mechanism..it aint worth fixing,try transfering all cassettes to mp3 and use the fm transmitter to play through the radio.(remember that cd is now obsolete.....)

If the belt is fine then the pinch roller must work to pull the tape with the capstan working.
so please open set and get glimpse to see if the pinch roller is engaging. If not the loading mechanism is not working. you will need to see if the reel drive is also working. So unless the mechansim is checked there is no question of the sound coming out.
So see that the loading engages the pinch roller to pull tape and the reel drive to gather the winding, if not reset loadding mechanism .
However if the tape moves and there is no sound then the head preamp, the tone amp or the output amp can be faulty. You can use a signal test to confirm the section.
credit if this helps

How do I remove the front seats in a 96 sedan deville


Hello: Move seats all the way forward, raise seat up as far as it will go. Remove covers over seat tracks in rear(go through the back door on each side) remove 15mm nut or bolt on each track, pick up rear of seat far enough to release the front hooks pull seat back and lift seat out of car. Make sure you disconnect the power seat wiring after you get the seat positioned for removal. Prior to removing seat. Also disconnect the side air bag wiring (yellow) if equipped.

What newer model of cars have radios that will fit my 1986 Cadillac Sedan/Deville? I prefer cd player and time display?


if your radio still works why not go for a mp3 player and an fm transmiter.that way you can down load as much music as you can take and not have cd*s in the car waiting to get stolen...you do know that the cd is now obsolete???(you can play your mp3 in any car with an fm radio......)NO WIRES.....
i down load to my phone and then set up the bluetooth (blackberry)and it also gives me route maps.....but then we are in front of you tech wise....but behind japan...clever what......

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

92 cAdillac sedan deville problems after cd player installation


You probably could but your gonna spend ALOT of money,what I would do is un install the cd player and check the wires.Undo everything you did back to the way it was before. Sounds to me like you have crossed wired or grounded something. If this fixes your problem take it to a car stereo place that installs radios and pay them to install your CD player.
