Unfortunatly the cd player is bad, i have not had any luck fixing them with this code, only option is replacing the unit or sending it in for repair.

I put a 1997 pontiac delco cd player in my 95 pontiac and when i put a cd in it ejects and says E20


Make sure you are using a original CD and not a copy. Some of the older CD players and some new also have problems with a copy CD.Try a original CD and if that does not help then try cleaning it with a CD cleaner and if that wont work then i would say its time for a new one.

E20 on cd player when I insert a cd into the player it reads E20...and just played a cd ...took it out and started another, then tried others and they all read E20


your cd player is unable to read the discs. may want to try some of the computer cleaner spray/ duster. spray the computer duster into the cd slot and it may clean the laser to let it work again.

I have a 97 Buick Regal and I get a E20 error message:cd player


It's just an error message. It stands for Error 20. There is no way to fix the problem. It only reads cd's that it wants. But if it does play a cd, then suddenly stops, and says E20 and spits the cd out, it's most likely because the cd player got too hot. My car does that all the time. And it won't play a lot of burned cd's. Hope this helped.

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.
