In general, car CD players are chock full o' surface mount electrolytic capacitors. These things do not last for a very long time, especially when in a super hot car dashboard for long periods. Many problems can be fixed by examining the circuit boards when you have it apart and looking with some sort of magnifying glasses, for leaking caps. Remove the cap, clean and repair the circuit board, and replace the cap with a new one.
This is just general advice though. For the life of me, I cannot understand why someone would ask for help in a newsgroup for a particular piece of electronic equipment and withhold the model number of the unit. This makes it almost impossible for anyone with knowledge of the product to help you if they could. If you have the model number of whatever it is you want help with, for God's sakes, post it with your request, rather than waiting for someone to take an interest and then "requesst" the model number from you. ...phew!
"Read Ohmster" in message body, will bypass
It's been awhile since I've played with one of these. But I've seen some that have a feature that adjusts the volume of the cd or tuner, can't remember which, without effecting the other. This feature was there to keep the volumes even between sources. I can't remember the name of the control but I'm pretty shure it was with the tone and fader controlls. If yours has this feature this might just be your fix. Hope it's that easy for you.
