    I appreciate everyone's assistance, but all the answers I'm getting are WAY too technical for me.

The e22 error code is a internal problem with the CD player.The code 22 means the CD motor is not handling the compact disc properly.The only repair is to remove it and have it sent in for repair.What the dealerships do is remove it and send it in to a Delco authorized repair service center.If there is a cd stuck in it the repair center will send the cd back to the dealership or to your address.You have to make sure you let them know there is a cd stuck in it.Another thing they will do is exchange yours for a newly repaired one.It is called an advanced exchange.Cost is about 200 bucks or so depending where you live in the USA.Prices could vary.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you need more help.

My 1998 Buick Regal radio shows E22 and it is not mentioned in the manual. The CD reads as if there is a CD in there but no. I have cleaned it about 5 times but it still is showing E22 and the radio cuts...

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

Have a cassette stuck in my 98 Buick Century Custom


sometime you can get luck by taking out the tape player and there will be a small hole somewhere on the player that you can stick a paper clip through to release the tape player. Otherwise gnetly stick a screwdriver under the tape to see if you can get it to release. no guarntees on that last one
