Should I repair or replace my car CD/radio?


Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 06:25 PM about the 2010 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla and all of a
sudden after a few hot days the dashboard
controls to the radio/CD do not work. The
radio still works by using the controls on the
steering wheel, and the volume and tuning
knobs still work everything else does not. I
can't even eject the CDs anymore.  Don't
know what the problem is or how to repair it.  
Any thoughts? I don't want to take it into the
shop and pay $200 just for diagnosis.

No, absolutely not the Dealer for this. All they will do is want to put in a new audio system for maybe $500. Take it to a reputable auto 'sound shop' ... Google search for one near you


Is there a CD in it now stuck? When you say hot days, it might have warped and that's why it's stuck and just getting it out might solve everything... except your CD. Probably your favorite
