Just a few days ago I ejected a cd and it worked fine, went to put a new one in and it stopped accepting cd's all together. Tried taking the fuse out and putting it back in and that did not work. I also have slid the cd in part way and pushed the eject button to see if it would eject and it does after pressing the eject button a few times. Not happy!
Cannot remove CD out of radio unit. Have not fixed problem as of today. Is this a recall by Chevy or am I stuck picking up the bill for repairs.
cd will not eject when button is pushed a loud clicking then check cd error message

The Cd player just stopped working, the radio works fine, Just the CD player want work or even take a CD.
I have this problem before and they replaced it or fixed it, then I was told by an ex-employee all that was probably done to take it out or just reset it, but charged us for the other work or replacement.. That is why I have had Tim McGraw stuck in it for the past four years and refuse to get it fixed.. The radio does just fine...
CD player does not work
CD player went out... would not take a CD. Had to replace entire radio, CD player not fixable.
The cd player in the radio fails to read the cd and then ejects the cd. This has happened and now it won't play anything. Also the illumination on each selection of that music system..half of them don't light up. I was told that the entire unit would have to be replaced just to take care of the illumination problem.
