If you are comfortable doing this (not reccommended by factory), you can clean your laser lense. Pull your dash cover ad remove the cd player. Then, take off only the top cover to the cd player. You should be able to look straight in at the laser. In some cd players you cannot. Either way, take a q-tip (preferrably not a standard store bought q-tip (unless you have direct access from the top of the player)) If cannot see the laser from the top you will have to go in through the cd slot and using a long swab or a q tip on some sort of extension, wipe the laser lense off manually. The cd "cleaning systems" that you can buy from radio shack or wall mart do nothing to clean the lense. I have used this procedure on my 98 ZJ and on my friends 98 stratus. The end result being normal playing.
It doesn't matter what you drive as long as it is a JEEP.
