Customer Question
I have a 2010...

I have a 2010 Toyota Matrix. The CD-player refuses to accept a CD - it resists loading it, all while displaying "read error" on screen; however there is no CD in the player. It's been working fine up to now. How can I overcome this?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Do you have scan tool or a code reader?

300,000km. I have a code-reader.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Matrix yourself? What have you tried so far?

Would like to. Will pulling the fuse help? If so, where's the fuse?
