Never had one fixed but I think its pretty expensive...

On the older Pontiac stereos... I have been through so many parts to get one stereo to function perfectly.... And the CDM Box for the 5 Band EQ stereo is $175 for a good one... Thats just for the CDM which is the power/tuner/and amp all in one box... I believe that the repair for the CD player is $150+ maybe more...

Moving to audio...

I wasnt sure if the cost was about the same as getting the wheel piece ($50) plus the cost of a new radio ($100) kinda sucks on trips with only radio, plus the kids are driving me up the wall about this!

thanks for the web site.... I think I will look into getting an aftermarket. Seems hard to belive that it costs so much to have this unit fixed.

i know if you do some heavy searching there are people who fix them, i had a few of my cd players fixed and the most i ever got charged was $25. You just have to find the right person... usually not businesses.
