I will give you a full rundown on how to install the cd changer;
Disconnect the car battery.
Run the cable from the Jensen changer to the back of your dashboard. Depending where you mount the changer, you might want to hide the cable under the carpet or run it along the door panel. Take some time before you mount the changer to figure out what is the best way to run the cable for your situation.
Remove your deck and the dashboard around it to access the back of the deck.
Locate the antenna lead plugged in to the back of your deck. Unplug it.
Find a good space to mount the FM modulator behind the dash and close enough to the deck to connect the antenna lead. You can secure the modulator to the inside of your dash by using two sided Velcro tape and place it where you need. Plug the antenna lead into the modulator's "Antenna In."
Connect the FM modulator to your deck by plugging the "Antenna Out" lead off the modulator to the antenna in on your deck.
Connect the two power cables from the modulator to your car's power. One lead goes to a constant source of power and one connects to a switched 12-volt power source.
Ground the modulator by running the black wire to an exposed screw. Wrap the wire around the screw and tighten it down so the wire doesn't come loose.
Reinstall your deck and dashboard.
Find a spot on your dash to mount the display unit. You can get creative and cut a hole in your dash and mount it that way or you can use Velcro tape and place it on your dash that way. Make sure it is close enough to the driver's seat so it can be accessed without having to reach too far. If there are loose wires hanging from under the dash you will want to tuck them under the dash and wrap them with wire ties.
The player is not part of the dash. you should notice that the trim on the sides of the centre console will pull off and the clock above the LCD screen will pull off. Onces these are removed you will notice that the centre part of the dash is held in by 5 bolts. remove these and remove the plastic plate above the alcove in front of the gear stick and the centre unit will pull out. There are also a bunch of wire that connect to the bottom of the CD player - I'm still trying to get them off myself but I think they will just pull off.
i have a 4 disk changer that had flashing error lights, i took the 3 screws off the top, 4 out the front sides that hold in the face. and then removed the 4 micro screws fron the top shiny metal cover on the front inside. this allowed me access to the internal disks that were inside. i removed them all and put it all back together. it seems that when i had work done to my car they had disconected the battery and when this was done the changer reset with disks inside still. one of them must have gotten dislodged and this is how i got the error. placed the changer back into the car and to my surprise it worked like new again. there was nothing on the forums or any search to help me out so i decided to repair myself. the worst i could do was find that there was nothing i could do and buy a new one. i just saved myself 100 dollars. hope you have the same luck
If it's a remotely installed CD changer (not in-dash) you've got a pretty good chance of getting it operational again. You need to pull the unit out of the vehicle and take the cover off of it. #1 phillips screws 6 or 7 pop the top and look down at the loading mechanism, chances are it tried to eject a cd int an occupied slot and jammed. Gently slide the cd back towards the player side so it's out of the cartridge, leave the top off and plug it back into the truck. it should automatically reset itself. If this is sucessful, eject the cartridge and inspect the slots, if they are warped or bent, replace it with a new one. If you have a Laser Lens Cleaner that uses fluid, use it. If not, get one, they can be purchased at almost any retailer for 15-20 and will extend the life of the lens quite a bit. Run it thru 3 or 4 times a year, it only takes a minute. If your unit is an in dash changer... It's kinda the same process, but alot more work. The unit has to be pulled out of the dash, which takes a little time, then it has to be disassembled, if your not a nuts n bolts kinda guy/gal, let a car audio shop do it for you. If you need more help, post a comment and I'll help some more. Hope this helps
if you are handy at fixing things unhook the cd player, unbolt it, carefully remove screws holding the unit and remove the actual cd player, now remove many tiny screws to open the unit out of the case, look for various wheels and try to turn them, do not force any of them. usually the wheel allowing the motion to move to various tracks on cd gets locked. if you can move it, most likely you solved your problem. put evrything back in the same order.
The trim panel that surrounds the radio and contains the climate controls and possibly 1 or 2 other switches needs to be removed. Apply gentle, even pressure on the edges and gradually move to the other edges, and the clips should pop out.
I would advise against unplugging the climate controls or radio however other switches can be unplugged safely.
Once the panel with the climate controls is removed there should be 4 phillips head screws holding the radio in place; remove those and you should be golden.
