I recently got a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. It has a single disc factory installed CD Player. It worked well for a while, but now the eject button wont work. I wouldn't mind if it were a different cd, but Weird Al Yankovich only has a momentary charm. PLEASE HELP ME!

The button for the eject is most likely dirty or damaged. Factory radio's are not easy to work on and most shops unless they are factory certified will refuse to work on them because the factory will not distribute the diagrams, this sounds like an easy fix for a shop and not very expensive. I would recommend taking it to a local radio store that installs radio's , have them remove it and see if they can fix it. on some radio's there is a small hole near where the cd is inserted, stick a small needle or something in it. This is most of the time a reset, or emergency eject for the cd. I hope this helps, if you need more info just contact me. good luck.

If it is an in dash cd changer, I would suggest you replace it with an aftermarket single disc player. In dash changers are very delicate and don't take much for them to go bad.

Good evening, my cd player just stopped working in my expedition. It keeps saying cd error. Even when i try to eject the cd it says the same thing or when i swith cd's. Its a factory 6 cd changer...


I had this happen in my old dodge stratus. My trick to remove cd's was when you stopped or parked the car turn vehicle off and hit the eject button and it will usually eject the disc. remove all discs and then install them again when car is parked and not moving as vibration and bumps while driving can sometimes miss align the disc in the player. Sometimes when the stereo didn't work at all I disconnected the battery and it would reset and work. If this doesn't work it may be broken. Good Luck.

it sounds like you need to turn on our amplifier. this is simple and easy to do just by connecting the blue/white wire off of the back of the radio to the blue wire on the harness that connects to the factory harness.

Possible that the cd disc has jammed due to a change in the disc- warming can bend some cd's, also if the cd is struck inside as the loading mechanism is struck. In both cases the set must be pulled out if there is no hope with trying to retrieve the cd softly assisting while ejecting. If you do not hear any noise while the eject is pressed then the loading drive is faulty , you need to remove the cd , open to check, If this is mechanical then you can softly push the cd out, if not the electonic section needs a check.

I have a cd stuck in my factory cd player, i have an 05 dodge ram 1500, the cd will play but wen i push the eject button the cd switches to the radio and does not eject out


the cd mechanism is probably bad. the only way to repair it is to replace the cd mechanism. it probably has a clarion cd mechanism.

You most likely need a new radio. They go bad all the time in the Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep. Don't know how many of them I have replaced.
