I've got h/u I pulled out of my rig that's got a cd left in it. What wires at minimum would need to be hooked up to eject the cd? I'm hoping I don't have to pull my dash apart and there's a way I can do this. If I have to I'll pull my dash and wire it up, just thinking there should be an easier solution.

Pop the hood, put the aux, and 12v on the + and the ground on the -.......power it on....eject. Remove wires from batt.

if its aftermarket its cake

the red and yellow wires need to be on the + of the battery

the black needs to be on the ground.

if its the factory radio....the only thing I can think of is to reconnect it to you factory harness

It's aftermarket. I thought that'd work, but wanted to make sure. I'll give that a shot, thanks!

If that doesnt work use the good ol' screw driver pry it out method ;-)

I bet a 9v battery would work just to eject the cd too

If you dont want to go outside, just slide the red and yellow wire in the top wall socket and the black into the bottom prong.

For faster cd ejecting:
110v < 220v

Please report back with your progress! :)

18v works the best
