Question about Aiwa CDC-MP3 CD Player

Ejects CD every time it is turned on

My brother and I recently transferred my CD player to a different car, and hard wired it without using a harness (which we have done a few times before). However, everytime I start up my car, the CD is ejected and the CD player is off. It then turns on when I push the CD back in, and starts at the beginning.

I realize this is probably some simple wiring mistake, as it seems to not remember where it was each time the power to it is cut. Also, sometimes if I only turn off the car for a minute or so, it wont eject the CD but will still start at the beginning.

Any help with what mistake we could have made when wiring and how to fix it would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Ejects CD every time it is turned on

It sounds like you have got the permanent live and the switched ignition live the wrong way round. if you check which positive 12v supply goes off when you turn the ignition off and remove the key and connect that one to the one which stays 12v when the key is turned off and vice versa that should solve your problem

SOURCE: cd will not eject

you can try disconnecting power to the stereo for a few minutes. sometimes the reset switch doesn't always completely clear the memory of the uprocessor.

ILO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo wiring

they all use the same colors. Every CD/DVD player manufacturer uses the same color scheme on all the same wires.

If you're asking what the right wires are in your car i'd get a wiring harness and just match up the wires and plug it in.

However if you're just going to cut off the car wiring harness and splice everything in go to and use the guides they have.

Car Radio Rejecting CDs

I had a simular problem ,the only thing you might try is a cd cleaner disk that has a little brush on it. might be a dust build up on the optical eye. or it just worn out. the optical eye in my opion is sensitive and hitting big bumps with a cd playing might throw it out of whack...they can make like a little bluetooth or cartridge that holds all of any music cd or 30 would be pure electronics...but i guess it compares to oil co. that wont put out the electric and money is what its about. you get my point.
