CD player won't eject CD and does not recognize the CD

I have a 1995 GMC Sierra with the cd player separate from the radio/cassette player. It is placed below the heater controls which is below the actual radio. The cd player has recently been very difficult to play any cd on and would read 'err' and eject the cd. Recently this occurred but after re-inserting the cd, the player would not recognize the cd as being present, did not eject the cd and would not respond to the manual eject button. How do I manually remove the cd from the player.

You will have to remove the player from your Sierra and disassemble it sufficiently to remove the stuck CD.

you might have to take it to the dealership to have the radio reprogramed. it should only cost 40 bucks. these radios are very tempermental and have a mind of their own sometimes.

The cd player will not play cd or eject cd

You need to get a engine diagnostics check sounds like you had a blip somewhere on the system that has caused your radio to do this
