Default Can't use my CD Changer!!

I just bought a 2003 Vue 3.0 AWD last month and for some reason, I can't get the stock CD Changer to load. Can anyone help me with this?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Is is the single or the 6CD player?

BTW, did you try pulling the fuse for the radio, and trying it again (with the fuse back in?

Everything else works, but I'll give that a try. It's a six disc changer.

Default Re: Can't use my CD Changer!!

The disc changer mechanisms do fail/wear out at a notable rate. You can either purchase a used replacement radio from ebay or have the radio repaired somewhere (not worthwhile IMO).

With a little work you would be able to install the MP3-capable 6-disc (or single disc) radio from a 2004-2005 Vue. You would lose your cassette deck, but gain the ability to play CDs using the MP3 format. This means you could play well over 100 songs from a single disc.

You would only consider this option if:

1) you can do it yourself (with some guidance - PM me if interested)
2) you would like to be able to play MP3 files from CD-R/CD-RW discs
3) you can live without a cassette player
and
4)you are otherwise satisfied with your existing radio.

I installed this radio in my car, installing it into your Vue would require the same procedure. (watch thisvideo)


If you want features like an aux input, USB input, or iPod interface your money would be better spent on an aftermarket radio with the desired features. A decent aftermarket radio with these features can be had for around $150; about $50 more would get you a radio with Bluetooth capability too.

The catch with Bluetooth though is that compatibility with your phone is hit or miss. Most manufacturers do include a list of popular cell phones that are compatible with it. If your phone is not on this list, it's simply a gamble that it may or may not work with that radio unless the seller has it on display and you are able to try before you buy the radio.
