In-Dash car cd player

My cd player when vehicle is started sometimes will be on with power but the cd will not activate it just sits there doing nothing.Also while the cd is playing it will skip and continue,or skip over and over,or it will stop playing for a short time then come back on.It also will just start scanning forward and or backward in a scramble type mode.The entire time the power is on and the unit is lit up.I have cleaned the player twice,moved the power source and adjusted the stereo angle.The problem has happened on 2 homemade cds and 1 factory cd.Can someone give me a solution please? Thanks!

Re: In-Dash car cd player

It sounds as if you've covered about as much as you can do without pulling it out and taking to the repair shop. Something you should definitely do if all this skipping is taking place whilst the car is stationary. A lot of earlier car CD players wouldn't accept the burn it yourself type disks and perhaps the factory CD was damaged. Try a few more factory CDs before you do anything else. Just because a disk plays on the Computer or cd Player in the house doesn't mean it will behave itself in the car. If you've has the unit for a while you could have the smear of grease they put on the worm drive gummed up with dust and this is stopping the disk carriage from moving freely. Or perhaps the heads are out of alignment due to constant vibration from rough roads. Either of these problems would mean a removal and either a clean or the repair shop. BMW

Just installed the unit into vehicle and can not get tuner to lock onto any stations. Thoughtrs?

Sometimes the aerial connectors don't fit tightly and can come off when seating the radio into the cage, try pulling the radio and powering it when it's out of the dash and still connected.

Good luck

After I pulled the old CD player out of my car the wires end plug dosnt match up to my new Pioneer DEH-11E. Is there a way to make it work or should I take it back.

Hello al_will00,

The color coding of the wires from aftermarket equipment will not match up with vehicle color codes. The new player will work OK when you have matched up the wiring by function. There's 2 ways to do it: 1) Find the color coding of your vehicle wiring and splice/tap into the existing harness; 2) Purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plug in directly.

The 2nd option is best. It allows you to make all of the connections (usually color for color) sitting at a table or workbench insted of from behind the poorly lighted dash. It also allow you to reinstall the OEM radio if you ever decide to do so. Splicing or tapping will make it more difficult.

I'd visit one of the online retailer like or to purchase a wiring harness. You can determine the correct model number from various sources, including the manufacturer, such as Metra here. Just enter your vehicle make, model and year information to see a list that the vehicle.

Hope this helps.

CD player wont come on was doing weird things

You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

Windshield wiper issue: Check C1002, 1003, and 1004 under your hood.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

Let me know if you need more assistance =)

Mercedes benz ml320

Depending on the year of your ML, there are two types of CD players. The changer in the back of the vehicle or the single CD player, part of the stereo.
Rear mounted CD changer, disconnect power for several minutes, this can act as a reset and bring the changer back to working.
Dash mounted CD player, may have Nav too. Again, depending on the year of the vehicle, there are some players that require some modifications at the repair level. Bosch, one of the manufacturers to be specific, for these units.

No power to CD Player

Hi Allenr,
The red wire should light the test light all the time.
The yellow wire should light the test light only when ignition is on.
the black wire should be tied to the body of the car. Red and yellow should be only wires with power to light test light,
you have blown fuse if the red wire is not lighting the test light.

No power

My guess is that when you pushed the player into the dash, you pinched a power wire, resulting in a blown fuse. Check the vehicle's fuse box. Most vehicles have at least two fuses that provide power to the radio, though they may not all be labeled as radio fuses. You may need to check all the fuses in the vehicle, including any fuse box under the hood.
