CD Changer

Anybody else out there with the in dash CD changer having any trouble with it? Every so often mine jams up, I can't eject, play, add, or change disks to it until it cools down for a while. I took it to the dealer and he offered to look at it sometime during the week, but I work 45 minutes away and can't get off work for something like this at the moment.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this problem with the factory cd changer in the G6.

Hmm..no issues with mine..I keep it playing constantly.. just like everything else..hit or miss item. I would keep CDs out of it until you get it replaced.

Today as I had just gotten back into the car, started it up, (after being parked for maybe 20 minutes? already warmed up..) the CD player said "CD player error" and went to the radio, but when I hit source it played the CD's fine, maybe it was just tired and grumpy.. But that's the most of the CD player issues I've seen..

Just had the issue today you are talking about..I cranked on the A/C and after cooling down it worked again.. Something smelled like it was melting from the heater. (appears to be related to what vent setting you use..) Laura normally uses the vents that blow in your face and I use floor/defrost.. today I was using the same vents laura normally does and the problem popped right up. Dealer time again.

Thats what we get for buying brand new bound to be little bugs that need worked out. The more we relate to our dealers and GM the better off the future owners will be.

Well, I experienced this for the first time today. I must say I wasn't too pleased. Oh Well, it worked about 2 minutes later.

Just rip the dash apart and wrap some insulation around that nasty old vent duct!!



Or you could take it to the dealer and have them do something........that would probably be the better option.

Dealers now have something available to them to address at least the loading and ejecting issue. Document for them to look up is #04111.

They reflash software in the radio.

Only additional thing I have to say is a couple dealers have problems with reflash of radio software and subsequently require replacement of radio. This is likely an issue with the service tool.

This has happened to me once. It is nice to know there is a fix if I need it. Do you think this is a warranty issue.

Had the same problem - Changer became unfunctional. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the whole unit! Haven't had a problem since!
