    In general, car CD players are chock full o' surface mount electrolytic
    capacitors. These things do not last for a very long time, especially when
    in a super hot car dashboard for long periods. Many problems can be fixed
    by examining the circuit boards when you have it apart and looking with
    some sort of magnifying glasses, for leaking caps. Remove the cap, clean
    and repair the circuit board, and replace the cap with a new one.

    This is just general advice though. For the life of me, I cannot understand
    why someone would ask for help in a newsgroup for a particular piece of
    electronic equipment and withhold the model number of the unit. This makes
    it almost impossible for anyone with knowledge of the product to help you
    if they could. If you have the model number of whatever it is you want help
    with, for God's sakes, post it with your request, rather than waiting for
    someone to take an interest and then "requesst" the model number from you.

    It's been awhile since I've played with one of these. But I've seen
    some that have a feature that adjusts the volume of the cd or tuner,
    can't remember which, without effecting the other. This feature was
    there to keep the volumes even between sources. I can't remember the
    name of the control but I'm pretty shure it was with the tone and fader
    controlls. If yours has this feature this might just be your fix.
    Hope it's that easy for you.
