I'm having the same problem in my V8.  Haven't chased it at all yet, but my first step is going to be to find and reseat all the connectors related to CD operation, maybe use some contact cleaner/enhancer as well.  If I find anything interesting I'll post back on it.

I've had the same problem. In the past I've found that changing the FM 
frequency on the modulator helps, but I've not been able to make that 
problem go away permanently.  Has someoby also been able to troubleshoot the 
problem and pinpoint it from the modulator and not the CD player?

As to location, if the question's not already been answered, it's under the 
passenger side kick panel, more or less behind the glove box.

If somebody does find another source, or a way to fix the unit, please let 
me know.  I priced a new CD player w/modulator and was not quite ready to 
bite the bullet on that one.

Hi Jim,

How did you eventually solve this?  I need to repair the same symptom.

On my system the FM from the cd player cuts out after the first couple of
songs.  My question is, where is the fm converter located in the car?  Also
can i just replace the converter or is it integrated with the cd player?
