    Suddenly...my CD player doesn't play CD's

    It powers up and I can insert and remove CD's but the CD button on the head unit has no function...other than a beep like the rest of the buttons have when pushed.

    I tried removing the fuse...twice with no result.

    Am I missing something?

    Most likely the cd drive has failed
    Here is a place that can fix it
    Specmo enterprises

    Re: Suddenly...my CD player doesn't play CD's

    OK...how about this for weird...I took the NAV DVD out of it's slot and put a music CD in it's place. That worked great and I had all of my touch screen functions. I thought to my self that at least I can listen to CD's that way if I really want to. I took the music CD out of that slot and inserted the NAV DVD, After the NAV re-initialized I put the music CD back in the CD player in the console. Just for the hell of it I pushed the CD function button on the head uni and the touch screen functions for the CD player suddenly appeared. I pushed the play arrow and number one CD started playing. I then tried all of the other positions and everything works fine.

    I don't know what I did or why it works now when it didn't before but I'm pleased that all is back to normal!!

    It may have been a software glitch
