I got in my car today and the CDR-23 was making a clicking noise. The radio was not on, and I had not yet put the key in the ignition. I pressed the eject button and the CD ejected, and the noise stopped. I put the CD back in, and all seemed fine. At the conclusion of my prior drive I had the radio on but I was not listening to the CD. I did not shut the radio; I just turned off the car.

I thought it might be an isolated incident, but the next time I got in the car, the same noise was happening. So for now I have removed the CD and left it out of the CDR-23.

Has anyone seen this behavior before? Is this a common failure?

In case it matters, the car is an 04 C4S.

It happens to mine all the time, I initially thought it was the aircon but later found out that it is the CDR-23 'preparing' itself, calibrating the laser etc.

Sometimes its a few seconds but I did have it calibrating for a entire lap of Snetterton (race circuit in England).....quite annoying!

Interesting. I imagine then that it starts right when I unlock/open the doors (I am assuming this because that is when power is applied to the radio and the light around the power knob begins to glow). This is not a big concern. I was worried that it was doing it the entire time that the car was off and that it would run down the battery.

Thanks for the info.
