Question about 2005 Infiniti G35

1 Answer

CD player (6 disc changer) "locked up"

I have a 2005 Infiniti G35 with a 6 disc Bose CD changer. I just got the car yesterday, and went to load my CDs (audiobook), and I was loading the CDs as I've done with my old Subaru that had a similar 6 disc changer, but after 5 CDs it began to not allow me to do anything...won't play any of the CDs, and won't allow loading the 6th, and won't eject any of them...just asks me to "check disc" but the discs are down in the changer and the opening to the slot where the discs are inserted is closed... I thought about disconnecting the fuse to power down the whole stereo system, but the fuse box does not have a "stereo" system labelled... Any ideas, or is this a dealer thing? I do have a while on my bumper-to-bumper warranty even on this used car...but thought I'd try and fix it myself...

    I have an Infiniti g35 and my player froze. It wont let me load, unload, or play my cds. An error message "cd error fo" came up. It sounds like the cds are not aligned because all I hear is like a clicking sound.

    Have had my 2008 G35x for 1 week and cd changer locked up and just shows "eject cd" on the display. When pushing the eject button it cycles and never ejects the cassette.

    I also have an Infiniti 2005 G35. I also have the same problem with the CD player freezing and I cannot retrieve my CDs. Took it to the dealer and it will be $800 to replace! Also, now the stereo and radio lights and console are dead. I cannot turn on the radio, heat, air conditioning, nor control the fan. It blows full blast at 90 degrees. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Take it to the dealership, your G35 should have a 4 year bumper to bumper on it. They'll replace the radio under warranty most likely.

My 5 disc CD changer will not eject an hung CD , on an Infiniti 2005 G35,..any solutons???

Some CD players actually have a locking mechanism inside of them. This mechanism can be released by using an unwound paperclip and sticking it into the CD player. There should be a button or platform to push that could release the disk. If that doesn't work, you might want to try using a pair of tweezers to pull the disc. To do this put the tweezers inside the CD tray and try to pull the disc out while pressing down and holding the eject button on the CD player. To me, it sounds like the motor that sucks in and ejects the disc is slowly dying and is having trouble pushing the disc out. If all else fails you might want to take the car to a dealership to see if they can replace your CD player

Hi, this is a common issue within car CD changers. the load motor go through lots of trauma during the life span that i usually 3 to 5 years. the load motor operates everything in the changer. it works the load tray and spinning of the disc as well. when this motor is out, the changer will be rendered useless. replacing the load motor will fix this issue or, you can just purchase a new changer and save a lot of money.

2003 infiniti g35 cd changer won't work-it gives an error message

Had to replace same unit twice in 2004 G35. Seems to be a bad model. Sometimes a dirty disk(s) will cause operation problems so make sure all disks are sqeaky clean, and if they are in unit for more than a month, remove, clean and reinstall. Use plain water and a soft cotton rag for dust, but windex for grease/oil/candy etc. Also vacuum unit face opening when cleaning interior.
