Unfortunately, my experience with the factory multi disk changer is no. Sometimes it is a matter of disconnecting and reconnecting to get it to a point where the system will eject the CD's. The problem actually appears to be a dust build up in the changer itself over time. It was only designed to work for about 5 years so you are well beyond that. My son was able to remove it and open it up and clean it out and got one to work for about 2 more years but in the end he ended up replacing it. Typically the gears that work the disk ladder inside jam up and cause it to fault out as the drive motor gets weak over time. In most cases to get your disk back you are going to have to open it up and manually cycle to each disk and remove it. Sorry, no really good news.

I had the same problem with my 00 dodge neon 4 cd disk changer...take the 3 screws out of the top, take the 4 screws out of the front sides that hold on the face. remove the top and face. If you have a really small screw driver take the 4 micro screws out of the shiny metal cover in the front. if not do what i did...stick your pinky finger down into the changer and wiggle the stuck CD up and down until it slides forward and out the slot. do this with each stuck CD. put it back together and it should work. I think the problem has something to do with the battery being dead or getting disconnected with cd's in the changer.

If you have a magazine-type CD changer there may be a CD jammed in transit between the magazine and the player mechanism. Disassembly may be required to find and fix the problem.

We can't get the factory 6 disc cd player to load more than 1 disc. What is the sequence for loading additional discs?


The following is the owner's manual for your 2004 Dodge Neon:

http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html?year=2004&nameplate=Neon

P.99 describes how to load discs:

1. Select and press any numbered button without an illuminated light above it.
2. Insert the CD while the light above the chosen button is flashing and the two lights on either side of the slot are illuminated.
3. Upon insertion, the CD will begin to play, and both the button light and the lights in the corner of the loading slot will illuminate.
4. Repeat the process for loading any additional CDs. The CD playe rwill stop while additional CDs are loaded.

Playing Discs
The radio will show the CD number, the CD track number, and the Track Time Elapsed while the radio is in the CD mode. IF more than one CD is loaded in the changer, the changer will automatically play the next disc after playing the last track of the current disc.

Wow, that's a lot of typing.
I didn't know the 2004 Dodge Neon had such a nice changer.
Good luck.

Bose 6 cd changer factory installed will not function.


Some people with this issue have had some sucess disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes to reset the stereo. After re-connecting the battery, the stereo should reset and the error message should clear at which point the CD player should also function. Apart from this, a service call at a dealer or a car stereo repair specialist are the only alternatives. Best of luck.
