Cd drive (or whatever the thing you put your cds in is called)
I have a problem. I put a cd into the cd drive, but when i wanted to retrieve it, it wouldn't come out. I pressed the eject button and nothing happened.You know how there's a flap that opens before the cd holder comes out and reveals the cd, well that wouldn't open either. Please Help!!!

Turn off the car (ignition switch off), pull the fuse for the radio, start the car (ignition switch to run), and put the fuse back in. Should completely reset the radio and let you eject the CD if it doesn't automatically eject it when the radio powers up again. Even with both the radio and the car turned "off" the radio still has power running to it, and it really isn't off, but in an extremely low power "sleep" mode (it's how the clock keeps running among a few other things).
The radio fuse should be a 10 Amp blade type fuse under the panel on the right side of the center console down in the right front passenger foot well. The panel pulls off and has a fuse diagram on the inside of the panel. Recommend using a flashlight.
This 'reading text" lockup is a known issue for that radio for CDs that have a large amount of "CD-Text" on them (an extension of the audio CD standard) in addition to the audio tracks. The CD deck and radio software were designed to handle a few kilobytes, but newer CDs often have more, much more, and it overloads the radio software trying to read it as it cannot store it all, and it locks up the deck. There was a radio software update fix for this that was rolled out to dealerships when these vehicles were under warranty, but apparently your radio was never reflashed or exchanged for one with the software update. I recommend seeing a Chevy dealership and asking to talk to the service manager about getting the radio updated or exchanged with the software fix . . . and they should do this without any charge as it was a latent defect in the radio software from day one . . . don't let them tell you the deck is broken . . . the problem is deck lockup when trying to read audio CDs with large amounts of CD-text on them because of a latent software defect in the radio (that was there from the day the radio was made). Only a few music CDs seem to have this problem, but it's a huge one with audio book CDs (books on CD) that have usually have many more audio tracks and much more CD-text compared to music CDs.
If you cannot get satisfaction after visiting two or three dealers, call Chevy directly and take up the issue with them . . . and tell them there should have been a recall to fix it while the vehicle was under warranty . . . but there wasn't (I believe there is a service bulletin though).
It is very easy if you buy the floppy drive separately and connect it via one of your USB ports. But who wants to change a CD to a floppy? It's like changing a exchanging a motorcycle for a bicycle. CDs are newer technology....unless you have old data you want to retrieve.
my problem is with the alpine system. it only ejects when cold. if tried when hot it jams and wont play cds or release until cold again. i removed the panel above the radio and place an icepac on the radio and after a while it starts spitting out cds
