Default CD Player Will Not Eject???

I have a 2004 Ram 2500 with a CD player that will not eject the CD. The dealer claims that this because it is a home burn audio CD that I made. I am trying to get a warrantee claim. I have never had a home burn CD hang up in any auto CD player before. This is my first Dodge. Is the dealer correct? Is this a common problem with Dodge CD players?

What difference does it make?????????????? You should be able to stuff a DVD in there and have the deck eject it. Sounds like he's trying to DODGE--PUN INTENDED, a warranty issue. If you can't get him to help you contact Daimler-Chrysler direct. I'm sure he'll appreciate you more after they contact him!

Well after two days of complaining they are putting a new CD player in tomorrow morning.

Friday a new Sony CD player from Crutchfield arrives and the old "new" unit is coming out until the RAM is sold.

This particular Dodge CD player (AM/FM CD; one CD at a time) must be a very poor unit. There are "tons" of them for sale on eBay anywhere from 30 to 100 dollars.

I too have run into this issue with my 2004 Ram.

It started with the CD player not initializing when I started the truck up. I was only able to get AM/FM until I shut off the engine and restarted it. This happened about 12 times in the first month I had my truck. I notified the dealer and they replaced it without blinking.

Since then I have still had the occational failure to initialize the CD, but I am also now seeing the failure to eject. I am not using any burned CDs, so that idea is out the window.

I'll take it back yet again and see what they come up with this time.

Are ya'll talking about the single disc CD player or the 6-disc (in-dash) CD player? I've got an '04 Ram as well and I'd hate to think I got a bum deal on the radidio.. The 6-speaker Infinity sound system does sound purdy though..

I had the same issue with the 6 disk changer. But I live out in the middle of no where so I didnt even bother with the dealer and just changed it out, but you will
have to rewire the whole thing. The aftermarket sterio harness(if you the infinity system) dosent come with the factory amp turn on lead, so you will have to rewire
all the speakers. ;-(

Ick.. That sounds like a P.I.T.A. [sm=ummmmokay.gif] Well, I listen to my XM radio most of the time anyway so maybe it won't be a problem.. I'll be sure to cycle thru a dozen or so CD's the week before my B2B warranty runs out though...

I had a pioneer cd player and it wouldn't eject the CD once in awhile. What i did to fix it was just pull the positive battery terminal, wait 30 seconds and connect it back up. That allows the head unit to "reboot" and then hit the eject button and it spit the darn thing right out.

WOW WOW WOW you do not have to rewire the whole system if you every want to put in a new cd player. Just because it has a stock amp, it is no different than a normal amp. There is a kit that will tap in to your old wires and turn them into a RCA if you want to put subs and a new amp in. Also I do belive there wireing harness for the Infenity System I will have to look in my book when I get to work.

As far and taking out the cd player and working on it bad idea. If it is a stock cd player the dealer WILL take it out and send the cd player off and put a new one in on the spot. The cd that got stuck will get sent back to the dealer when it is out. If the dealer is trying to mess with you then call Dodge Customer Service and let them know. I had the same thing happen to my 2004 Ram (but they just took it out and put a new one in no questions asked). The Warrenty is good bumper to bumper for 30000 or 3 years.

yea, thats not right. all you have to do it connect the stock infinity amp remote wire(usually blue) in with the aftermarket cd players remote wire.
this will turn on the stock stereo systems infinity amp when your cd player turns on ... if this wire is not connected or not connect right the speakers will seem very faint and weak sounding.

it did it to me once but it came out a few days later. never had a problem since then. except sometimes when it goes to the next song no sound will come out even though the timer says the song is playing. i just turn it off and back on and then press seek down and then seek back up to the song i was trying to listen to and it works fine.

I had the same problem once and that's it. My truck is an '04 as well. Wouldn't eject one day but did the next when i jumped in to go to work. Not sure what happened but I've always wondered.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I've had a cd stuck in my stereo for a while now. The dealer told me that because it is a cd that was burned, they will not replace the unit. Has anyone been successful in getting Dodge to replace theirs? I have an '05 tried just about everything to get the cd out. Thanks.

Some old threads are getting dragged back from the grave.

I don't think I've even loaded a CD in mine. What the heck is a CD? Does your deck have the small pinhole to manually eject a disc like most computer cd-rom drives? Just a thought. Otherwise, hold down the eject button for a longer length of time?

A burned CD should have nothing to do with the eject system.

I figured I'd bump this one instead of starting a new one. My radio does not have a manual eject, no pinhole...nothing. I asked the dealer if there was a manual way to eject & they said no. I've held down the eject, I've disconnected & reconnected the battery. I've done it all & nothing worked. It actually says in the manual to not use a CD over a certain thickness. The dealership said burned CDs are slightly thicker then ones bought from a store but I haven't measured.
