Q: DVD and CD players jammed, navigation not working.

asked by on

When the DVD player and the CD player on your vehicle cannot eject a disc it is because the loading/unloading motor in the unit has failed. Besides taking the unit apart to retrieve the discs there is not much that can be done besides replacement of the unit.

Most people end up replacing them with aftermarket units as it is easier and faster.
