In another forum, it has been reported in tech bulletins (TSBs) from GM that the Avalanche CD player cannot handle more that 192 total tunes in any one loading of CDs. It is not clear whether that means 192 tunes on a single CD player or 192 tunes on a multi-disk player. Depending on which you have, you might check to see if this applies to you as a possibility.

Just had this too on my 04 Avalanche. Pressing the eject button would make it whir but it appeared dead trying to put any cd in. Dealer said it would be over $1000 for a new unit as they're sealed. Balls to that. Took the unit out, removed the heatsink on the left hand side, which then gives access to be able to prize the top and lower metal plates off. I removed the facia too and unplugged the connectors to the boards inside. Removed the cd unit itself from the casing via 4 screws (i think!). I noticed the laser houseing which reads the cd was as if it was half way through reading a cd so i manually moved this back towards the outer casing along the long thread. Then I blew all over the place, slammed everything back together making sure all connectors were properly seated, and to my utter astonishment......it works! I'm thinking that a mechanical problem was causing the electronics to think there was still a cd in the drive. Either that, or maybe a jolt had loosened a connector. Hope this helps someone as I was miffed discovering the cd unit had not worked....radio was fine.... dealer didn't utter a word and I didn't think to check. Oh yes... pert number was Delphi Delco 12244929

#15 of 15 buzz in my speakers
Jul 08, 2013 (3:55 pm)
Hello, I have a '03 Av and after my tranny was replaced for the second time, i noticed a buzz when the radio or cd was on, it was intermittent, but it slowly has gotten worse. Now it is pretty much constant when the speakers are on, and you can hear it get higher as you speed up, and some times it will stop or adjust when going over bumps in the road.
I can't afford a new audio system in my truck, but the buzz is driving me crazy. I have heard rumor about a recall on the Bose system . . . anyone else? or any suggestions?
