How to Remove a Stuck CD in a Jeep Cherokee Laredo

by Matthew Fortuna

CDs can get stuck in all types of players and systems, and the player installed on the Jeep Cherokee Laredo is no different. These stuck CDs can force errors on your player and once they get stuck you won't be able to change discs and may not even be able to play the one that is stuck in your system. You can attempt to remove the discs in just a few seconds with a couple of safe methods.

Enter your car with your ignition key and turn the car to the "Acc" position to activate the CD player.

Press and hold the "Eject" button by itself for up to three minutes, or press and hold "Eject" while repeatedly pressing the "Power" button to attempt to work the disc out of the system.

Reset the player using the small black indented "Reset" button on the face to try to get the player to reconfigure itself and push the disc out.

Use a blank disc or a set of tweezers or a paper clip to attempt to push the disc up into the ejecting track. You can do this by inserting the tip of the object into the player and pushing the stuck CD upwards while pressing or holding the "Eject" button.
