Stock CD Player help?
I have a 1996 Bonneville SE, with the stock GM Delco AM/FM CD Player with EQ. I like the sound from the stock stereo & speakers, but I have a little problem.
Whenever I insert a CD into the stereo, it skips like crazy. It does this on factory CD'*, burned CD-R'*, anything. Sitting still or when driving, it doesn't seem to matter. I did notice it skips more when pushing on pedals, operating other switches, etc., but I can't be sure about this.
I have tried to clean the lens multiple times, with two different CD cleaning discs (different brush styles). This was the recommended fix by my local Pontiac dealer! The first time I did it, right after buying the car used last year, it did seem to make the playback better for a little while. Now, though, it doesn't seem to help at all - it even skips the cleaning CD'*!
This is becoming a major problem, as there is usually nothing on my local radio stations (crappy stations here) and playing CD'* gives me a headache!
Does anyone know if this is a common problem, and is there a solution to it? I would prefer NOT to replace the radio/head unit, either with an aftermarket head or with a used/refurb GM one, as I would like to keep my Bonnie as stock as possible, and I have seriously limited funds.
