Default CD player lights flashing

I have a 2001 Sebring w/cd player and the lighhts on the buttons are flashing. Does any one know how to fix this or what might be the matter. If it has to be replaced I will but want to se what else I could try. Thanks for any input. Jimmyjets33

try a battery disconnect and touch the cables together if that does not do it new radio time.

When you touch the battery cables together, make sure that they are not connected to the battery. Totally disconnecting the system from the battery causes a "reset". You need to touch the cables together to discharge any residual voltage in the system. There is a capability of retaining some electricity in the system for a short period of time after disconnecting the battery to allow for the possibility of air bag deployment during a wreck even if the battery is taken out.
You can accomplish the same thing for the radio by pulling the IOD (Ignition Off Draw) fuse. In the fuse panel under the shield at the left end of the instrument panel (visible with the car door open), you will see one fuse with some big "ears" on it. It can be easily pulled without a puller. That's what the ears are for. This fuse controls the circuits in the car that work without a key in the ignition, the door locks, interior lights and the radio (clock). Pop that fuse for a minute and put it back in. The lights in the radio will stop flashing when you pull the fuse. Like Tech says, if the problem resumes after this, you will probably need to replace the radio. Replacement radios appear on eBay every once in a while, keep your eye peeled.

The other option is, if the radio/CD works fine, you can always enjoy the light show!

This sounds good buy would only replacing the cd part be ok? or both the radio and the CD player?

You probably have, but consult the manual for the radio to see if the "flashing" means something. (like CD stuck in drive, or something like that.)

If it is irregular flashing look for poor contacts in harness or switches.
