It is fairly common to experience problems with CD players in Jeeps after several years because of dust and moisture intake. The most common problem resolutions can range from a cleaning to a system replacement.

One of the most common problems is an error message. Error messages pop up as "ERR" on your CD player when you insert a disc into the changer. Usually this is because there is dust, moisture or dirt blocking the laser from reading the disk. This can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the CD or inserting a CD LED cleaning disc into the drive. If this does not work, you may have to clean the laser head with a CD cleaner or replace your stereo.
If your CD player seems to be working but you can't hear audio, the wiring that connects the CD player to the speakers may have come lose. To check it, take off the trim that surrounds the temperature-control knobs to the left of the steering column. Use a screwdriver to open up the snaps and unscrew the screws on the trim. Once you remove the panel, you will see the CD player. Remove the large blots, and slide the CD player out to check that the wiring is secure.
CD Refuses To Accept CDs
If the CD player refuses to accept or read any CDs or does not respond when you try to insert a CD, the system may need to be replaced. Consult with your dealership or a mechanic before you replace the system because you may have just knocked a sensor out of place. This can happen especially if you go off-roading.
