    I have a similar problem with my CD player, it started eyecting the CD's out and finally went out, not working. CD's wont even will go in, looked for a fuse but only found the radio's fuse and it's fine, no fuse for CD player,

    unless CD has gone bad and needs to be replaced,

    Thanks for any advise,

Cd player is probably shot at that point. if its a newer grand am, like 02 on up - this is how to take the dash apart and replace cd player -

theres a trim piece around the cd player and climate control knobs. check all around this trim piece for screws. if none, its held in by pressure clips. just pull firmly but gently and evenly and it will pop off without breaking. there are 3 bolts holding the cd player in place. 9/32 is the size for a socket. after that you pull the cd player out. unplug the harness and the antenna.

this is very important -
an old standard gm wire harness to aftermarket radio WILL NOT work on this vehicle. you need a special gm harness that costs around $100. replaces door chime and prevents failure of a LOT of other options. its a long story, but trust me you need it. also an antenna adapter to go from gm's 'mini' size antenna to a standard. add a mount kit for the radio and you're lookin at $150 in parts before u even buy a radio.

dash reassembly is obviously just the reverse order of what was listed above.

hope this helps. is my email if it doesnt help. i used to be an autotech. if i cant answer ur questions chances are i know someone that can!

When I place a CD in the tape player it spins then spits out. It never plays and I get the message ERR

This happens when you got a bad cd lens.

Try cleaning the lens or you take it to an auto shop where they have the required tools.

Good luck dear.

Thanks for using Fixya.
