I cannot play any CDs in the stock CD Player. I can still use the radio though. The screen just says ERROR every time I insert a CD.
Radio shows "ERR". CD drive whirs (as if trying to eject a disk) even with truck turned off.
cd player keeps eject cds with out reading then or it the radio says err
Radio says err when i insert disc. It will not play the cd
CD player says check cd...try and put one in and it just comes back out...tried to clean with canned air and still doesn't also makes a little racket
CD player flashes error (ERR), not sure how to fix it.
It's been slowly getting worse over the course of two years but the radio will just buzz static and radio stations that fade in and out at random all while the tune dial won't work. I used to be able to bang on the dashboard and that would cause the radio to work making me think it's a loose wire of some sort
The cd player reads ERR and ejects disc, I dont know how to fix Probably cheaper to take ZR2 truck to audio store and get new radio than take to dealer. Too many bad experience with dealerships do not trust any of them.
remove and replaced radio after cd player would not work
The CD or cassette player doesn't work any more. What. Can I do?
CD player failed, repair shop says the "eye" was worn out. I did not have repaired.
CD player quit working. Did not have fixed. Did not use often. POS.
CD won't work. Not fixed.
The CD player failed in My S-10 couple of years after I bought the truck new.
Your Best bet is........find one with the features you really like, and have it installed.
Chuck the old one, as it will just give you more headaches as time goes on.
The CD skipped! Replaced twice in 2 years under warranty. They replaced with reconditioned, not new !
cd fails after 1/2 played
