I have owned my 2003 Corvette since it was new and have never had any problems until now. For the past few months my CD player has been acting up. After getting in my car and starting it up I insert a CD only to get an error (err) code. I try this for the first few minutes and finally give up. After the car has been running for about 20 minutes or longer with the heater/defrost on I can then insert a CD and it will begin playing, It seems the unit has to be "warmed" before it will play, GM tells me I need to repace the entire unit at well over $1000.00. I don't think so! Any suggestions????

The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.
The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer track the cd properly causing skipping, and plays off and on. One possible solution "if the laser lens is accessible", you can try cleaning it with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol very carefully allowing several minutes to dry. If this fails, Bose will need to be contacted since they do the authorized repairs on their products.
I can help you with this problem. All you need to do is to force eject the trey which is hilding the cd's. This will cause no damage, the hole is made for this purpose.
First you need to locate a small hole near the eject button.
Now you need to push a pin into the hole untill you feel resistance.
While holding the pin securely gently pull out the trey.
You should be able to recover your cd now and your player should work perfectly again. Please rate this.
HI. you will need to replace the loading dock motor. once this replacement is done, you will have no problem loading and unloading your media.
This repair will need to be initiated by Bose unfortunately. you will need to send it to Bose.
I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:
Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists,
effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. Their web site,
www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to give
owners of broken sets a $200 allowance towards the purchase of a new
Wave. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check
out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price.
My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.
