    Hello all, fairly new to the forums and not the most mechanically savvy, though thats what we have family for (my brother is the mechanic in the family lol).

    Had a quick question for you guys, I was recently checking the fuses on the audio system (mainly because my subwoofer in the back stopped working altogether, fairly sure the Amp might be shot) and pulled it out, checked it quick and put it back in. A while later after leaving the vehicle to sit for a bit, I had to go somewhere, and as I turned on the CD player, it went through every single disc and every one of them displayed the same thing on the console "Bad CD" and kept moving on to the next one. Is the CD player corrupted? Any ideas on what to do? I have a head unit I could use to replace it, but I would much rather use the stock for now until I am ready to replace the sub and amp in the back with the stuff I have.

    There are several threads regarding this, did you tried searching?

    Unplug the cd changer, there is a red plug, leave it unplugged for a few mins and then plug it back in, it will do the self test again and might reset itself and work for a while, then die again.
    You do the same process until you get tired and replace it, or it no longer works...
    Good luck :thumbsup:

    Mind did it, so I picked up another changer from pic a part and it worked...untill it did the same thing. I switched back and finally had enough of it. I just bought a new Pioneer head unit with the single cd player but with USB so it works with a flash drive or Ipod and just took the cd changer out and am now enjoying a center console with twice the amount of room in it, lol.

    How hard is it to remove the stock 6 disc changer? I'm thinking of just taking it out all together since it doesn't work.
