    Disabling Auto Cassette Eject

    Is it possible to disable the auto cassette eject in a 89 Deville? Sometimes my adapter works after it is ejected and sometimes it doesn't. I'd rather just keep it in there!

    Having an AUX input installed wouldn't be too expensive, and can give you slightly better sound quality.

    ----------

    Actually, just a thought:

    Your tape player takes the tapes in long ways, right? Most take it in the other way, and that's what most cassette adapters are set up for. By that, I mean the side that the wire comes out of the adapter. Does your wire end up wedged on the side of the tape when you insert it?

    I have a write up bookmarked on adding a line in to the delco 2000 series radios. I'll see if I can find it. It's not hard at all. Just requires soldering 3 wires in and drilling a small hole in the face or mounting the 1/8" input somewhere (like in your console/ armrest).

    Ok. Of the wire gets wedged in, it can cause the tape to sit incorrectly, and you'll get poor/no sound, and/or the tape will just eject.

    It's the tension it takes to play the tape that makes it pop out. It either thinks there's something wrong with the tape or that it's at the end.

    I guess I wasn't too clear. Whenever I turn the car off, it automatically pops out. It's that I want to change.

    I know what you're talking about Faith, there's no way to disable it.

    Have you thought about switching to an FM transmitter and doing away with the tape adaptor altogether?

    It's hard to keep a station around here because of it being hilly, and picking up Canadian stations across the water. I'm always having to adjust them.

    An FM transmitter has nothing to do with stations... it transmits from the box to your antenna

    Its just a wireless version of what you are using now

    I had one that if you had it set to a station that had a broadcast come in, you couldn't hear the iPod.
