1. Remove the center trim panel around the radio and HVAC controls.
Open the ash tray and pull on each corner of the trim panel. The 1st time you do this, it will be very hard to release the spring clips. Only need to pull out about 3/4"

2. Once both lower corner spring clips are pulled out, work you way up each side, there are 3 spring clips on each side of the trim panel. Be careful with the top, the wires to the Passenger Airbag Deactivation indicator are very small.

After the panel is puled loose, release the connector to the PAD indicator at the top, and undo the connector to the cigar lighter ( and park aid / traction control buttons if applicable ) and release the cam over connectors on the HVAC panel.

Once you get to this point the radio is held in with 4 hex head screws

I got a cd stuck in a ford f150 CD player so i tried another cd to get it out but I have 2 CDs stuck know how to I get them out

you have to remove the entire radio out of the dash. theres 4 pin holes on the face of the radio. what I found worked best was a old metal coat hanger, cut 2- 8 inch lengths,fold them in a (U) shape & insert them in the holes to release the support bracket. O)nce u get it out there is a manual eject lever that will work for you.

You probably blew a fuse in the back of the radio, or in the fuse box. Check both to be sure. And remember, always disconnect the battery before you do something with the wiring harness.

2005 chevy trailblazer cd player won't eject cd

I have a 06 Z71 and it did the same thing so more than likely your just going to have to buy a new cd player. I would recommend going with an aftermarket cd player because you probably going to spend just as much on another stock unit.

05 Ford F150 Radio doesn't work.

I had the same problem and i brought a new ford oem cd player 2 times and my mechanic says its an electrical problem with some fords not the Cd player or the radio. So your cd player may not be junk, it may be electrical or wiring problem.
