Which radio do you have? The touch screen navigation radio, or the non-navigation radio? Does the CD tray make any noises like it's spinning? If you hear noises when trying to eject, but nothing happens, it could be the ejection wheel is dusty and won't grab the disc to eject. Some disassembly of the radio (removing the cover), and cleaning the roller with some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab could work wonders.

If no noises are happening, it could be the CD portion of the radio has either gone kaput, or a connection is loose/damaged. You can disassemble the radio and get the CD out that way. I've had to do that before. You aren't voiding warranties at this point.

I'd look at replacing the stock radio with a double-din option that offers more modern capabilities.

With navigation and yes it does sound like something is trying to spin Inside but nothing. Before disc button went blue and disabled. Disc's were stuck and would attempt to play or eject but now nothing of coarse

Ah...you have a 2007+. This forum is specifically for the 99-2006 models. But the root cause should still be similar. I'd check the roller that is supposed to push the disc out. It's probably dusty, and can't grip the disc.

Would that cause the disc player to disable? How do you reinable or reset? I've tried the fuse removal but no luck

Not 100% sure. You could have multiple issues, or maybe the disc is not seated in the drive properly, and the radio thinks there's nothing in the drive, but you can't get the disc out. I would post this in the 2007-2014 forum to see if someone has a better answer.

Were you able to eject the disc via the button on the radio, or did you need to disassemble the radio to accomplish this task?
