Saturn Ion 2003 CD player Err code

2003 Saturn Ion CD player Err code. Was asked to elaborate & give more info to my problem. A few CDs I have had trouble getting read in my car stereo but worked fine in any other CD player. I cleaned the CD w/ a good cleaner that's worked. Found out that my car stereo doesn't work well in cold weather. As I drive to work early, CD would continuously eject & LOAD would appear on readout. I would continue this process until the disc was read which would take anywhere from 5-25 tries or not @ all until after work when the weather was warmer. Got into my car one morning @ pressed AUX button to play CD. Disc was ejected, but LOAD did not appear. Now when I press LD/EJ button, LOAD does not appear on readout. The slot #3 that ejectedy disc should appear empty but shows a disc is in there. Now I can't eject or load in any other slot. Err appears every time I try to load or eject, period. Interesting note: about once every month while listening to a CD, the music would stop, all slots would flash on, & the disc I was playing would continue after 5-10 seconds. This almost seemed like the player was resetting itself. Radio still works. Went thru 50+ pages & read I could unplug my negative battery terminal & this might reset my CD player, but that was for a Honda. This is a stock Saturn Ion radio. E-mail bradjmcmillan@aol.com. Thanks.

I have a crv also. the audio system has an anti-theft mechanism, to deter thieves from stealing your cd player/radio. you need a code to turn your unit back on, usually a four or five digit code, that should have been provided when you bought the vehicle. If you don't have it, the unit will come back on after, and only after a full, uninterupted hour of driving.

you may have to use needle nose pliers to pull them out or remove the radio and open it up and remove them also take a look at the drive belt it may have broke, there are many electrionic places that will repair it if you remove it and take it to them, most of the one i run into broke a belt or 2cds were jamed inside it.

My cd player was working fine with my cds, then it began to spit them back out reading err, I put another unit in, specifically a 98 blazer cd unit and even that unit read err with my cds, any suggestions?


CD's could need to be cleaned.
If you burned them yourself, the CD's could be
scratched are dammaged.

Unlike store bought CD's home made CD's do not have a
protective plastic coating.

Lexus 2001 is 200 6 disc stereo error 1 code shows when trying to play cds


Error 1 - "disc is dirty, damaged, or is inserted upside down"

I quote other solution comments:

I've been getting the Err 1 and Err 3 for a while now, my headunit needs replacing but I haven't had chance yet...
I've found that the cold weather makes it worse as the CDs get that cold they are covered in condensation so the CD has trouble reading them..
In my experience when you get an Err 3 it's basically knacked and needs replacing and Err 1's can sometimes be read problems - what's the disk like?
Mine has started giving Err 1's on brand new CD's (not CDRs) so she's probably having trouble focussing....
If the car is less than 5 years old the headunit should be covered under warranty (ie free).


Hope helps.

I have a CD stuck in the 6 CD player causing the player not to work. Can I remove the radio CD player front cover to unstick the CD and how do I do it ? I have a Saturn ION 2003


check the wires in the back to ensure there is no cut or torn wires this is a common problem with all cd changers you will need to take apart the cd changer there is a lever connected to s spring which will unlock the cds

Replaced radio with one from same model year. Displays Err 01.


this generally means the laser is either dirty or the cd player is shot, err 01 is a disc reading problem. Try cleaning lens with cleaning disc first if this does not help i would replace the unit with another. i would recommend replacing it with a cheap aftermarket stereo.
