2003 Cadillac CTS 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 75000K miles

I have the Bose AM/FM 6CD changer in this car and neither are working well (the cd changer not at all). I searched the service history and found that both the radio and cd changer were replaced twice under warranty. This sounds (no pun intended) like a vehicle problem rather than sound system. Any thoughts as to what it could be? Thanks Bill

Were you able to see why they were replaced under warranty, this could have been for something as little as the finish wearing off of the buttons. If I am not mistaken, isn't the radio and the changer one unit on this vehicle? The cd changer failure is typically a failure. You did not mention the symptoms you are having. If a cd error message, won't eject, or won't load is being encountered, it is safe to say a fault with unit. If the disc skips, and you have changed discs to determine that it occurs on more than one specific disc, than it is a unit fault. Often times people use burned copies of cd's, and these can have problems, especially on older units. You did not mention any symptoms on the radio, therefore I can offer no suggestions.

In my experience, when the factory ones go bad, better off going to a place that specializes in car audio and have them look at it.
