While car CD players have become nearly standard in vehicles around the world, including the 2005 GMC models, these players are not without their problems. One common error with these players happens when your CD gets stuck in the player or ejecting track. You can remove or free a stuck CD from the player in just seconds using the correct methods, which will keep you from harming the disc itself or the CD player.

Step 1

Insert the key into your car's ignition and turn the key to the "ACC" position to start the car's CD player.

Step 2

Press and hold the "Eject" button on the player for up to three minutes to attempt to force the CD out of the system. You can also try to press and hold the "Eject" button at the same time as the "Power" button to try to push the disc out with the ejecting track as the player repeatedly powers on and off.

Step 3

Press the "Reset" button on the face of the CD player. This button is a small black indentation that must be pushed with a paper clip or a pen. This will turn the player on and back off, reset its settings, which might work to trigger the CD out.

Step 4

Insert an extra or blank disc into the CD player slot and attempt to slide it underneath the stuck disc. If you can do this, push the stuck CD up into the ejecting slot as you hold the "Eject" button. This will put the stuck disc in the correct position to be pushed out.
