Chevy Cavalier Cassette Player

Ok I just bought this car from a private owner. I have a cd player that has an adapter to go into the tape player but the tape player will not play the tape so that my cd player works. It will take it in but its like it wont take it so it will actually play? Help

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 .

Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.

How do i replace radio cassette player with a cd player mazda 6 2002


Don't replace it. Go to Walmart and buy an adapter. It is usally at the check out somewhere and It cost about $5.00. It has a cassette that goes into the cassette player. Then you plug your ipod or whatever into the attached wire. Doesn't look cool but it works and it is inexpensive. The adapters with the cd player attached skip (we had one 20 years ago) so just buy the new kind of adapter for less and play all your up to date gadgets. Put your cd songs on your ipod or iphone. Our son uses one in his truck with his little ipod shuffle. No cd player needed.
