    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.

While trying to play a CD in my 2005 Pontiac G6, the CD will not stay in the disk player and comes back out and gives an error message. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


What is the error message? Also- if the disc is scratched badly, the laser in the CD player may not be able to read the disc. Try another clean CD to see if the disc is the problem.

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.

CD player quit working after battery installation


Some of these new systems are very finicky, to reset you need to disconnect the negative battery cable wait a few minutes then reconnect, new electronics are sensitive to the difference.
It's possible the low voltage caused by the dying battery actually damaged your CD player, digital electronics are great but they have some serious weaknesses too.
Find out what brand and model your CD player is then go online and do a search for a service manual for your player, you may find an easy fix that way.
Best of luck!
