bad install?

is the strap on the rear?
connections tight and taped and or crimped?

obviously it still has power if it is loading and ejecting..

sounds like the switched power wire is the problem

if it ejects thats off of the constant battery power (yellow) cause it will do it when its off, id say the main power is unconnected (red)

if it isnt the wiring, maybe there's dirt in there .. for 10 bucks at london drugs you can get this CD thing that cleans it out.

after using that, you can listen to tons of cd's that wouldnt play before

I agree. Your ACC wire (Red) is not connected properly. Check your connections. Good luck! :)

yep the ignition power wire or whatever was on the frits so i just attached it right to battery and put a fuse on it. So problem is fixed. i just hafta remember to turn it off everytime i get outta the jeep haha

if you wire it into a fuse that turns on when you turn the key on you wont have to

ohhh yess, i can see a 200 $ fix it right bill coming up. and if you got a amp running off your deck this means your batty is going to run even faster if you forget to turn it off[cheers]

I run an extra switch in mine that controls the aux on supply from constent to ignition. This way when I want constant music, no problem, but when drivin in town and leaving the vehicle it can go off with the key. As far as your original problem goes, try and reset the unit. There is usually a tinny reset button on the front of most cd players.

it wont reset.. i went out and bought another deck cuz i just thoiught maybe it was pooched but it wasent.. the new deck did the same.. wasnt getting constant power for the turn key ignition power wire deely.. so we just hooked a fuse up to the battery and wired itthat way for now. The wire mess was retarded so we just did what we could
