Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

Open Question

CD player in my 2006 Chevy Equinox will not play CD's or eject the 3 that are in the player. A message comes up saying "CD changer error". I only play store bought CD's. I bought this used and don't have a warranty. Can I fix this myself?

Try and remove the radio fuse for 30 seconds to cycle power to the unit and then try to remove them. Some of these units have a software issue and a reset can clear it.

Hiya...the factory-installed keyless remote control are installed in most Equinoxes IF SO equipped with this option that year.
However, it's difficult to get "true factory-installed" keyless feature in your Equinox ....but new 2008-2009 Equinoxes built this year now comes with standard keyless remote and yes, new option is remote STARTER feature (that option is identified by a black wire found inside the rear-right quarter window with thin metal line surrounding that interior window to receive signal from remote starter fob)

At least you can find after-market keyless remote control at your local retail store.

There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Please go to the nearest GM dealer for assistance

the technique with the battery terminals does work but i personally don't recommend it.
when i had a stereo issue i just unplugged it from the back of the stereo and plugged it back in

Ever since I changed the battery in my 2005 Chevy Equinox, the cd player has been flashing an error message and I can't play or eject my cds.


it sounds like you need to input a code to get the cd player to work.check the owners manual for the code and possibly the procedure to input it.you may have to go to the dealer for them to get the code a program it into the player.when you disconnected the battery it went into theft mode thinking it was being stolen.
