Question about Car Audio & Video

Infiniti's FX-35 Bose 5 Disk CD Changer is totally Jammed.

I have owned this car for 2 years and the Bose CD Changer sucks. The CDs would Jam once in a while, specially disk 4. I used to be able to push the Eject Button and the disk would eventually come out. Now, last week I had the same problem, except that it seems to be completely Jammed, and pressing the Eject button or trying to switch from Disk 4 to another Disk does not work anymore. I have tried every 3 days or so with the same outcome.

Is there a tool that I can use to remove the disks from inside the CD Changer?

Also - how do I remove the complete cover of the dash board so that I can access the CD-changer?

I need to do this myself because I don't want to go through the dealer for this, since the warranty is expired.

    CD won't play it keeps saying 'check disk'

  • BamBam75 Dec 09, 2008

    My battery died one morning and when I tried to start the car the CD player kept trying to switch disk and it got stuck. Now the mode button used to switch from AM to FM to CD doesn't go to CD just AM/FM. If I cut the radio off and hit the eject button it will make clicking sounds like it is stuck between disk.

    I have 2001 Infinity QX4, 6-CD system. It has jammed in the past and somehow I was able to retried the errant CD and things worked. Not now. Do I need to figure out how to remove the whole thing? I can't seem to even see into the thing, but shouldn't it be possible to get the cds out somehow?

SOURCE: CDs will not load

hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent.

SOURCE: 6 CD Changer Stuck (Lexus LX 470)

Open the eject door and at the lower right side of the cartridge their should be a small indent that looks like you could poke it with a medium point pen. That's a reset for the changer. If that does not work, you will need to remove the changer from the car, pull off the top, plug the cable back in and hit eject. look for the arm on the backside of the cartridge and give it a nudge. It may just be stuck. Loading mechanisms usually do not fail before the optics or other!. If you need further help, post a comment with any model #'s on the changer and I'll look for info and help some more. Hope this helps.

2004 GTO will not eject CDs, says CD mech error.


I just had this happen the other day. It completely jammed up. I ended up having to remove the radio and disassemble the upper changer section to get the disks out. The problem with mine was that one of the disk trays broke and jammed the mechanism. I ended up gutting the changer and and reassembling the radio and installing it in the car to use the AM/FM function. I'm currently in the search for a new radio to swipe the CD changer off of since even radios that you do not have the security code for will work as the coding is in the radio section and not the CD changer. The changer attaches to the top of the radio with 2 T8 and 4 T10 screws and connects with a ribbon cable between the two modules. You'll see the ribbon cable when the top CD changer mechanism. Be careful removing CDs this way as if the player's rotating assembly is not retracted, it is very easy to scratch the disk. Unfortunately I lost a Velvet Revolver disk this way. Good luck! If you are on one of the the big boards I go by TR GTO on both if you need to contact me and I'll walk you through it.

I have a Bose acoustic wave muti-disc changer.i have 5 disk in changer,i cannot eject any disk,& it looks like its hung up on # 5.non of the disk will play. Thank You-


I called Bose service. Jason said to unplug for 1minute then plug back in. If the changer does not reboot and operate properly....you call Bose service. They will exchange your cd changer for a new one.
$75 plus tax and return your cd's to you. They will give instructions for the exchange when you call.

CD player (6 disc changer) "locked up"


Take it to the dealership, your G35 should have a 4 year bumper to bumper on it. They'll replace the radio under warranty most likely.

Bose Wave Music Sys & 3 CD Changer


I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.

Multi cd bose player will not eject 4th cd.


OK, this problem is everywhere with the bose cd changer addon. Many people can still play a cd with the top one fine, but cannot get cds to eject and/or read in 3 disc changer. My friends mom had one and after finally hearing back from bose, they said send it in with $100 to get fixed. If you have to send in and you value your cds, you may want to open it up and get them out. Use this at your own risk, there are no warranty stickers I saw and there will be exposed voltage, shock hazards, etc.; so if any of this worries you, stop here. By proceeding, you are admitting that you are capable of minor repairs and therefore I'm not responsible for any damage or harm caused. OK, here it is:
Unplug everything. On the bottom of the cd changer unit are 4 screws (silver ones recessed about 3/4" or so, use phillips screwdriver) to remove. Turn unit upright again and lift cover slowly straight up. In the front of the unit is a ribbon cable you will want to disconnect that goes to the cd 2-4 lights. Take note which side the dark blue tab is on and gently pull out by dark blue tab, rocking side to side if needed) You can then pull cover all the way off and set aside. Plug power into back of cd changer (careful not to touch anything inside) and see if the cds want to eject now. If not let the initializing process finish and repeat. This time see if you can gently help the cd out. The problem may also be the spindle not lowering, you can look for this movement during the last step of init. process. Work your way fom the top tray down removing the cds gently, remember we open it up because they were valuable to us, don't destroy them now, and don't ever use anything that could possibly scratch either top or bottom of the cd, use edges instead. Start to replace cover making sure to reattach ribbon cable back into socket the same way it came out. do not force too hard or you may crease and break ribbon. Gently replace cover and grab both top and bottom to turn over. Replace 4 phillips screws making sure not to overtighten or cross-thread. Now you may return to bose or just find an independent repair shop in your area, they are usually quicker, more polite, usually cheaper, and best of all, local!
