#117 of 236 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS CD player spits every cd i throw at it. PLEASE HELP!
Jul 11, 2006 (10:03 am)
recently, i became a proud owner of a 1998 toyota avalon xls. there is one problem that bothers me all the time and that is the cd player. the cd player is a factory type-3. sometime early in the morning i insert a cd and (if i'm lucky) it plays for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or so and then give a an error "err1" or something similar. after i ejected the cd and insert another one it went in for a few seconds and spits it back out. the am/fm radio and cass works fine, but the cd player drives me crazy. thanks in advance.
ps: sorry i posted on the wrong place

Has anyone used the USA-Spec Ipod interface on an '05 or '06 JBL equipped Av without Navigation? I really want to pull the trigger on it, and would like some feedback. I know it doesn't display the artist and title but that isn't a big deal for me. Thanks.
#120 of 236 No Bass with CD player
Aug 12, 2006 (1:58 pm)
We just bought a 06 Avalon Limited with 6 disk CD changer. When we listen to the AM/FM, the bass is good and strong but when listening to CD, (either burned or store bought) the bass is almost nonexistent. I went to the dealer and put my store bought CD into another Avalon and it sounded the same. Any ideas.

thanx for sharing the pics. one reason i don't have an avalon yet is because of that nasty black xm box on the trunk. is that the best they can do?! please tell me they've come up with something better for '07! anyway, your mod gives me hope that a workable and visibly appealing soln exists.

The SIRIUS antenna is mounted to the windshield behind the rear view mirror. You can put that XM antenna just about anywhere yu want to inside the vehicle as well.
#125 of 236 iPod/Avalon Owners in Denver....
Aug 28, 2006 (1:58 pm)
For those who have 2005-2006 Avalons w/Nav and are looking for an iPod integration solution, Vais Technology has a promising device and they just need some help testing.
The SLI iPod adapter promises full integration with the Avalon head-end: audio, steering controls, song titles, etc. Their device works with non-Nav systems now but they need an opportunity to test the system in an Avalon w/Nav.
Vais Tech is located in Denver and their website is www.vaistech.com. Someone willing to give up an afternoon for testing might talk them into a "deal" on the device (they didn't say this, I'm just guessing.)
I would go but 2200 miles is a bit far for me...
P.S. Pat, I know this belongs in one of your other new forums but I think lots of folks are still watching this one. Copy this if you wish, but please leave one copy here. Thanks.

Sounds like the optical pickup ass'y inside the CD player is either dirty or weak.
