Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado with the Premium radio. Radio works fine, but when inserting CD, it pulls it in, but then stops with about 2 inches still protruding.....consistently. I can hit eject and it comes back out, but will not pull a CD in any further. I have unhooked the battery to reset it, but that hasn't helped. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is a physical defect that would require to pull out the CD player - most likely.

Sometimes - but very rarely - it may be caused by another CD still in it, which you can see if you use a small screwdriver or something similar to raise the protection plates at the slot where you put in the CD and inspect inside.

SOmeties you may be even able to see what;s actually blocking it - CD or bent plastic - and using a longer screwdriver either push it gently in place or help it get out.

Most of the time, though, you end up having to take the CD player out and open it to restore the mechanical functionality.

The lights are not repairable.The cd problem can only be repaired by taking it to the dealership and what they do is an advanced exchange.This means they need to get the part number from your radio and order one for you and when it comes in they swap your for the new one and they program it.The new radio has to be programmed or it will not work.The radios come from out East from a factory certified repair dealer.The dealership that I worked at used United Radio.There are some others.But that is how it usually works.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How to remove the car stereo from 2007 Chevy Colorado


This is not hard but tricky because the trim plate around the radio has clips that hold the trim plate very tight.Use a plastic type flat tool or flat screw driver wraped with tape or a shop rag to avoid damage to the plastic trim and pry the trim panel around the radio loose. remove all elec connectors.Then remove the screws that hold the radio in place and remove all elec connectors.
