I inserted 6 discs into my monsoon stereo and the all played just fine. i took out the stereo because i am looking to upgrade it. upon putting the stereo back in for the day, i found that everything works...
Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. In the many years I have been doing car audio, it seems that factory units are getting cheaper and cheaper. By far the least impressive units I have seen have been the indash 6 disc changers the factorys are installing. They are VERY sensitive and it doesnt take much to get them out of whack. It even states on the top of most of the units that is you drop it, you are to throw it away. That is just ridiculous. You have 2 options here. First one is to take it to a repair facility and have it serviced. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find service centers for factory radios because aftermarket headunits are really cheap and 10 times better in overall quality and features. Your second option, and the one I recommend, is to just replace the unit with an aftermarket one. You can retain the Monsoon system with the new headunit and you can get capability for direct USB and AUX inputs for todays smart phones and other digital devices. You will need a dash kit, wiring harness adapter, and an antenna adapter to install a new headunit into this vehicle, but it will be well worth the investment. You can get a good cd player for about $89 or so that will be a name brand like Kenwood or JVC. The price will go up from there depending on what additional features you would like to have, such as remote control, ipod control, droid control, bluetooth, etc. Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!
