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!

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

Where is the cd player the radio says that there is no disk

Most cd players are in the main dash panel. If you do not have a cd slot, you likely don't have a cd player. These vans usually don't come with them and you have to install an aftermarket cd player.
If you have a cd disc changer, it is likely in the very rear of the vehicle.

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 =)

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.
