    I"ve got a '96 with the stock 6-disc changer mounted in the center console. Suddenly it has decided to go on strike and stop playing cd's. Its not a "jam", if the cassette has 6 cd's then it will cycle through each one.

    For example it will load the first cd, you can hear it spin up briefly and the display reads 01-01, then it spits it out without playing a sound and moves on to the next disc. This repeats for however many discs are in the cassette and then at the end it reads "No CD" on the main display. It doesn't seem to have any problem loading or ejecting the cassette or each cd, just doesn't feel like playing them now.

    Doing some searches I found threads about cd's getting stuck, but noting quite like this. I'm thinking of trying a lens cleaner cd, but concerned that it might actually get stuck.

    Thanks for any help!

    real cd's, doesn't matter which ones, or if I have just 1 or all 6 in. It cycles through the ones in the cassette then spits them out and says "no cd".

    I pulled the CD changer and then watched it try to run without the cover on. In mine, it would load a disc fine, but the motor wouldn't spin the cd properly - sometimes not at all, sometimes as just a really really slow speed. I didn't see an easy way disassemble the motor or replace it, so I ended up getting a new in-dash cd reciever with Sirius radio. I still have the old changer and might try to get it working sometime, but didn't seem like an easy task at the time.

    Good luck.
