How to Fix a Toyota CD Player


Most Toyota models since the late ’90s have included CD players. Some Toyota cars, such as the 2011 Camry XLE, hold up to six discs at once. Common problems with Toyota CD players include jammed discs, unreliable sound and power failure. All of these issues can be fixed by the car owner without any advanced technical knowledge. Follow a few steps to help you diagnose and solve your CD player problem.

Items you will need: Flashlight, CD cleaning disc

Step 1 Test the Toyota’s speakers using a different audio input. The Toyota’s speakers may be the real problem instead of the CD player. Turn on the radio unit and turn up the master volume knob. If you hear audio, then the issue lies with the CD player.

Step 2 Examine the CD Player wiring under the dashboard. Use a flash light to check all wires connecting to the CD deck under the dashboard. Any wires that appear loose or worn down should be re-soldered or replaced.
