Not being an audiophile-type, I didn't need a bangin' system in my little Tracker.
It came with the standard AM/FM stereo and I wanted to at least play some of my CDs..... but wanted a simple plug and play.... and cheap.
Checked the local junkyard and they found a 4-door Tracker LSi that had the factory CD/Cassette player still in it. It was in pretty bad shape as the windshield was out of the wrecked 4-door Tracker.
Plenty of dirty..... and the volume knob is dry-rotted and kinda loose... may try to swap mine onto it.
Well, I chanced it.
$40 with a guarantee to be able to return it if it didn't work.
Once I plugged it in, the face lit up but it took a second or two before anything happened.. audio-wise. It sounded like Kid Rock was on the radio, but the channel was not a local channel...... hmmmmmm
Wow, it was the CD player!
I hit eject, expecting the CD to be stuck in there or something..... this is what I found. It flipped me off!!!!
Sadly, the cassette player doesn't work...
I actually found a couple tapes down in the basement
But I'll keep it just for the CD player use.
Everything else works as it should. The preset button for #1 needs an extra push or two to get it to work.... but all in all.... not bad for $40.... and a free CD.
Now, I can play a few CDs. Now, if I could only find someone to do an "aux-in" to this puppy and I can use my phone music (currently using a FM transmitter for that).
