Something worth trying, if you haven't already, insert a different cd into the player. Sometimes, for various resons, the cd player can't read the digital code on the cd, so, it sends it back out.
There could also be a problem with the reader in the cd player. Usually it's just dust particals and can be resolved with a cd designed to clean the cd player.
I have had the same problem with my 2003 Pilot single player. Over the life of the car, it has eaten 2 CDs and they are still in the player. CDs still play fine. How can I get them out? One is a library CD, and they want me to pay them for it. I'm not sure they believe that the car ate my CD.
I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.
Well I just found my solution.... I was a little too quick the first time.
There are 3 fuse boxes for the 2004 Pilot. One on the drivers side, one under the hood, and one on the passenger side. My 15 Amp fuse on the passenger side (fuse #9) was blown thus causing the front AC outlets and the radio/clock/CD player to be completely dead. I pulled the 15 Amp spare from the fuse box under the hood, and replaced the blown fuse in the passenger side fuse box. The radio came on like a champ and I didn't even need to reset the radio code. I figure I just saved at least $100 vs. taking it to a dealer. :)
Most hondas have the code on the vehicle itself for resetting the code once the battery has been disconected or radio removed. Try pulling the glove box out and looking on the inside of the cavity. You should not need a code to remove the radio the alarm should not go off, it is the installation. The radio will not work with any other --vehicle without your specific code, good thieves know this and would rather steal the whole car. "Especially the Honda Accord. Have one in the garage and a 2005 Pilot.
