The factory audio CD player has discs stuck in it. It won't load or eject. And the speakers stopped working, but now work again. My car also seems like it revs too much, and sounds loud when changing gears.
The diagnostic procedure from Acura regarding your CD player is to replace the unit if the CD does not eject. As for your speakers intermittently working, there is likely a problem with the circuit, or with the speakers themselves; more than likely, the cause is from aging speakers. Finally, if your engine RPMs increase with no change in vehicle speed, your transmission is slipping. This may be due to lack of pressure, or a failed internal holding device. A trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, can address all three of these issues for you, with a diagnostic check of your car’s audio system, as well as a diagnostic inspection of your transmission slippage.

Using a blank disc, try inserting the disc about 1-inch deep into the player without force, then press the EJECT button a couple of times until both discs come out together. Reset the unit.
Press your CD player`s power and eject buttons down at the same time, holding them for about ten seconds. If your stereo has a “force eject” feature, it should spit out the CD. If this doesn`t work, start the car and try again.
Directly under or above the drive bay door (the part that “ejects” the disk) there should be a small pinhole. Insert the paperclip into the pinhole and push it in gently. Remove and reinsert the paperclip as often as needed to eject the drive bay enough to grab a hold of it.
Unplug the power cord of the CD player from the AC wall outlet. Allow the CD player to set without power for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord of the CD player back into the AC wall outlet.
In the menu bar at the top of the desktop, click File and select Eject.
Many people assume that a CD player is a complicated electronic device, but that couldn`t be further from the truth. The player is actually made up of just a few mechanical parts that can break, and repairing those parts is sometimes surprisingly simple.
Go to Start -> Run -> Cmd. Now type, C:\>eject H: Where H is the CD drive. Note your CD drive letter and type it instead of H.
The Eject Button (Japanese: だっしゅつボタン Break-Out Button) is a type of consumable held item introduced in Generation V. It switches out the holder if it is hit by a damaging move.
Hi-fi systems–or at least the speakers, turntable, and amplifier parts of those systems–should last a good deal longer, figure 10 to 20 years. CD players aren`t as long-lived, though they can deliver 5 to 10 years of service.
Thanks. So the short answer is: your CD player can`t impart invisible damage to discs. As long as the playing surface is clean, your disc should theoretically play back fine.
Specifics vary, but the Acura radio code is typically located in the glove box or engine fuse box. If the radio code isn`t present, it may be in your owner`s manual or can be found on the official Acura website when you enter your VIN. If you can`t find it, our Acura service center can help.

An eject symbol, displayed as an upward-pointing triangle above a horiztonal bar. May be used as a physical button or an icon in a user interface. Represents the action of ejecting physical media such as a floppy disk, videocasette or DVD on a computer or media player.
It can be obtained as a tier 2 special drop.
At the wavelengths involved a little dust on the lens isn`t likely to cause any problems. Due to the way the laser is focused, however, it can cause problems if there is dust on the disc. Keep the discs as clean as you can. Also, you never want to touch any of the optics, as the oil from your hands will cause problems.
While the idea of leaving a CD inside of a vintage CD-player to hide in a time capsule for your unsuspecting offspring might seem tempting, don`t. Keep your CDs in a case, plastic sleeve or something meant for containing it, which doesn`t have any other parts inside. And leave it next to the player.
Fingerprints, smudges, dirt, or dust on the laser reading side of the disc can disrupt laser focus on the data even more than a scratch can. Dirt or dust on the disc will block or reduce the light intensity of the laser. If severe enough, it will cause the disc drive to miss data as the disc is being read.
At first, this damaging disc disease appears as slight discoloration or tiny pin-prick sized dots that let light shine through. Discoloration deepens or the dots eventually spread until the damaged disc is corrupt.
Unlike a cassette tape that stores its audio and visual information in analog format, CDs and DVDs do so digitally. Consequently, data written to these media will not see a drop in quality during the process, as long as the bitrate or resolution isn`t reduced along the way.
If your radio is turning on but there is no sound. First check radio functions, be sure you have an audio source selected like Radio. If using AUX, USB or BT AUDIO be sure you have a device connected to the correct input. Be sure the radio is not Muted.
