Thread: CD Player on the Fritz

  1. #1

    CD Player on the Fritz

    I have a stock head unit on my '04 ZHP that is constantly trying to eject a CD. However, there is no CD in the unit from what I can tell. It has been doing this since I purchased the vehicle. I did notice on the dealer's work order that there were some electrical issues with the unit that was in there and that they replaced the head unit. I purchased it from an Audi dealership. I have tried the following:

    - Put a CD in there and really jam it in there. This doesn't work. It just spits it right out.
    - Disconnect the battery. Didn't work.

    I'm at a loss. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. My ideas at the moment are limited to the following:

    1.) Punch it because it's so annoying.
    2.) Kick it because it's so annoying. I imagine getting my leg up there to kick it will be difficult and since I'm getting older I might hurt myself.
    3.) Head butt it (same problem as #2)
    4.) Hope someone here has a better idea for fixing this issue.

    Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

    If I were you, I would take the head unit out of the car and open it. There may be something in there that is causing this constant eject mode.

    Buy replacement unit off Ebay, they're cheap and plentiful. Be sure it's a 2004+ model - MP3 compatibility didn't start till sometime in the '04 model year (beginning?).

    The head unit was already replaced.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
