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?

Hey how are you

1- the cd most likely went bad

2- the code reader want be able to read the module in the carf unless it is a toyota scaner or equivalent

3- lets try this first and let me know

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
