The CD player in my 05 Escalade will not allow me to insert CD's. All lights work on the unit. When you try to insert cd, the player does not grab the CD. Anyone run into this before? If so, does this mean I need a new CD player is there a fix?

Did you press the load button before inserting the cd?

You have two choices repair or replace(the cd changer is cheaper to replace)

I did replace the CD unit with a remanufactured one from Ebay. It was around $200. The swap was fairly easy once I realized you need to remove the entire cover and not just the plastic wood piece. It took well under 30 minutes to complete.
