    Ok I'm not knowledgeable on that unit at all sorry. But you should still be able to open it up and see if anything like debris is there that could be causing the problem. If not then I'd take it to the dealer.

    2005 sts 6 disc cd changer reading "cd mech error". I disconnected battery cables for 30 min. Didn't reset. Read "cd power error" this was yesterday. Today, reading cd mech error again and won't eject cd's. any suggestions from anyone? Could it be the fuse? I haven't checked that yet

    I don't see how it could be a fuse; it gets power. It's not hard to pull the trim & radio; just be careful not to crack it down low where it's thin. Maybe you can take it apart and look for something obvious. You can't hurt it, it's already broken.

    You can likely get a replacement from an auto parts recycler for pretty cheap. It will take a trip to the dealer with proof of purchase to get the theft-lock cleared. If you were considering an upgrade to Nav, now might be the time; but it's imperfect and kinda spendy.

    Good luck.

    I'm assuming its not the nav one. First link is gen 1 cts users with this issue and possible solutions. 2nd link is detailed instructions on how to take it apart and get your CDs out.

    ----------

    And I see you did a search because you found the issue on the srx forums. Saw your post Haha. I'd try that thing where they pull the unit and disconnect and reconnect all the connections.

    Guy, I see a few for good prices on eBay. Mine is non nav. Do u know if I can buy a nav and simply replace mine? Or would I have to change other things like antenna etc?

    Are you putting labels on your home burnt CD's ?
    Try it without the labels, but, after you LOOK inside
    for a foriegn object.
    Happy Motoring !

    I'm thinking there's more to it than just plugging the nav into a non nav car. Not 100% sure what though.

    There is a thread on here about adding a nav, about 30 pages worth.

    I recently swaped out my non Nav stereo with a navigation unit. it was a easy plug and play but had to buy Gps antenna and Nav disc. I purchased a new unit so i did not have to take it to the dealership for any reprogramming.
