The post above mine, the member is correct regarding a new cd player, a cassette adapter will play only so good no matter what you add to your existing system, try a cd changer,not expensive at all and you can add it simply without compermising too much quality.

The tape player is probably broke. There may have been pop spilled in there and got it all sticky inside. Use a maglite and look inside the tape player for this or bad dust etc. You will have to replace the player, and you might as well get a cd player since it will not cost you a ton these days. You can use an mp3 player or ipod today, but if you want to use cd's, then install a cd player. You should be able to do this pretty cheap now, maybe $40-60 bucks or so.

Play cassette tape

Not sure here but i think you may have a rubber band broke on the mechanism inside the player,my sunday car the jag ! has a cd in the boot and a tape player inside the car and i do not bother with the CD player but i plug my fancy phone in as it will play from the SD card in the phone ,real fancy like as blank CDs are not cheap anymore and the time delay of the CD changing so i play my house music and wigan pier throught he phone.Swinging grandad my grandaughter calls me ? but if you remove the player then yes its possible to fit new bands but they are a special rubber and you cannot use a domestic rubber band but how about buying one of them players that use a radio transmitter ,plug into ciggy lighter and tune a radio preselect in to the player ,simple but word of warning here make sure the radio aerial is down or unscrewed depending on type on your car as nothing worse than my bouncy tunes coming through with a background noise from a local FM station on the same frequency if the aerial is up but it comes up when i turn radio on hence i went back to the blank tape thingy you have here ,no interferance .How do get away with such a old car ,here in spain they are taking them off the road with a minium amount from the goverment against a new car ,and dont ask about the yearly mechanical inspections ?? still i make a living doing the repairs so i cannot complain i suppose .

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.

CD Player for 1998 Mercury Mystique

I just bought the same car recently and my son installed a cd/satellite/radio player into it with no problems. A high-end one that he took out of one of his cars. He's an audio freak that works in a high-performance car accessory shop. The only thing extra he had to install was some kind of wiring adapter to mate it with the existing factory radio harness. It only cost a few bucks. I think about $15.00. And there was no worries about wattage or anything else. Been using the player for about six-weeks now with no problems. If you remind me, I'll ask him about that wiring adapter....

Cd player

"PEO" USUALLY means Player Error Optical,which means in most cases the
laser has malfunctioned.When this happens of course,no CD or disc will
play. You can try and clean it with a disk cleaner and if that doesn't work you are probably gonna hafta buy a new cd player. I have a link to a best buy private auction that lets you bid on things like cd players and what not. I bought one, a Pioneer DEH 2900 for 16 bucks!, Lemme know and I'll have it sent to you.
