The CD player originally offered in G1 Legends had lots of problems. I just installed an indash Acura OEM CD Player about 7 months ago. The dealer had originally given me one ( product code ) for a G1 Legend from 86-90 that had been remanufactured. I installed it and it didn't function as you describe. For the first 13 years I owned the car I didn't have one at all. The dealer was embarrassed and gave me one for a G2 Legend...and it fit right into the same slot perfectly and worked with my G1 Bose radio ( as I have an LS ). The only difference is that the LED is grey for the G2 player....the rest of the interior lights for a G1 Legend are green. So....you can get a new one for a G2 that'll work in a G1 Legend. Good luck ! JohnYngwie said:My CD player in my G1 legend does not work, mine came with the "Acura" CD player, but it accepts the CD, reads it, then ejects it. What about that? Your lucky yours still works.

Also, these guys can fix your broken units, and the Bose system speakers as well.
BTW, on Bose systems, this would fit in the slot above the lighter & ashtray, replacing the cassette storage unit.
I originally bought my car without the CD option. I waited for years to put one in and finally did about a year and a half ago. I didn't want to pay the dealer $ 800 for a single in-dash CD player. Finally, after bugging my dealer for a few years he agreed to sell me a remanufactured unit for $ 300. In order to install it you have to remove the cassette storage unit, grind down some the plastic per the instructions BUT....you needed an " Acura Installation Kit " and " Bracket Kit ". I found the bracket kit at a dealer in Utah...and bought the inatallation kit from " Willmans "....who as a lot of people know....repairs the Bose systems. The installation kit is a " Y Plug " that connects to the stock power and speaker plug in the car and plugs into the back of the radio & player. When I plugged in the player...it wouldn't read the CD....so the dealer exchanged the CD2008 for a CD2102 ( which was for a '92 LS )...and it works perfectly. Don't let anyone tell you that a G2 player won't work with a G1... I'm proof that it is compatable!!!!!5speed said:ND1980LS;
Your factory CD player didn't work since you bought the car new? Why didn't you demand to have it replaced?
