'99 Mercurary Tracer cassette player problems...

I have a headphone cd player that came with a cassette tape attachment. My car has no cd player, so i pushed the cd attachment into the stereo player to listen to the cd, instead of the radio. The attachment worked great for a few months, but then the cassette was beginning to get stuck in the player.

Now, the cassette has been in the player for over a year or two, but the radio still plays. I would like to remove the cassette becasue: the car seems to try to play the cassette even though there is nothing on it to listen to (i unhooked it from the headphones), and also because I am planning to sell the car.

The cassette adapters are notorious for getting stuck in the deck. More often than not its the wire that comes out of it that causes it. The cleanest and safest way to remove the cassette adapter is to remove the radio, take off the top and "Help" it eject with your fingers or some narrow tool that may get behind it to push it forward and out. If you dont want to take the deck out of the dash, you can try pushing the eject button while manipulating the adapter wire, but I dont recommend it. Its just better to take the deck out. Good Luck

Cable Connect iPod iPhone MP3 Phone Audio to Mazda Car Player


Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)

or does it just have a tape player?

if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.

if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo


Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

Cassette issues


Could the tape be a Mono recording? Have you tried to clean the head on the tape player? This could fix it if the head is dirty. Do you use the tape player very often? It could have a dust build-up. Hope this helps...
