Question about 2002 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Radio/CD question, MENU functions, 6pk in dash unit.

Hello all...
I recently purchased an 02 cougar, and I do have a question about the radio/cd system. The users manual does not cover this....go fig...

There is a MENU button, giving you 2 options, TRAFFIC (on or off) and RDS (on or off), what does TRAFFIC do?

I have figured out that RDS is Radio Data Stream, ie, text data, but still lost on the Traffic issue...

Thanks!

Aparently the traffic function is a toggling traffic announcements system, basicaly the same as the rds system but only for traffic. hope it helps

2007 Toyota Camry When I put disk in the CD player after about 30 seconds of it flashing saying reading disk it then shows an ERROR 1!?? Any help??? Thks


It can be dirty or faulty disk,but if that's not the case the problem relates to cd player lens.Its not reading the disk.The inside lens which reads and detects the cd is either got dirty or its faulty and unit has to be replaced.-------So whether is dirty lens or faulty that can be confirmed once the unit is inspected.Try running lens cleaning cd in your cd player unit and see if that is helping.========For more help i suggest refer the help links mentioned below:------

My Ford Ka radio/ 6000 CD RDS EON doesn't work.


It can be the problem with cd player mechanism,on many cases just removing the cd player system out of dash and servicing the unit helps to take care of such problems.

The radio in my mustang turns on, but no sound. The cd player has sound


Seen this problem before on mustangs, usually you have to replace the stereo unit, complete with cd player. water leak under dash probably had nothing to do with it.

My 2002 mercury cougar radio cd player says cd error and i have 2 cd's in there. it also will not load or eject them. what shoud i do?!?!


sometimes blank CDs that you purchase to burn your own music on are slightly larger than the CDs used by recording studios - they can get stuck and the only solution is to remove the CD player and then remove the top and carefully work the CD/s out being careful not to damage anything inside - then do not use them again in your vehicles CD player

How do you remove radio from dash this is the second time we have had a cd get stuck in radio


if its the original fitment .go to halfords or similar and purchase a pair of bent radio hooks they slot into the 4 holes {2 on either side of the unit } push them in until you hear a click than simultaneous key pull and the unit will come out from the dash .you will have to then strip down the unit to remove the CD its unusual for this to happen as the factory fitment is a very high quality unit .and you will find removing a CD from it hard work as you will require power to eject it {however if the car still have any warranty ..take it back and thy will replace you CD tuner

Cd player


remove ash tray one screw behind there, then remove top dash panel that goes from end to end across dash this just snaps off pull upward to remove you will see 2 screws on top of trim around radio remove these 2 and then dash trim will pull off pull straight back then radio can be removed should be held in by 2 10mm bolts, this should cover 80% of the radios (important TIP) if it still doesn't come out the trick is some of the wranglers have an extra security bar on stock cd players only you will see 2 more 10mm bolt on the top of the dash where you removed the 2 screws from earlier these hold a bracket that is mounted to the back of the cd player once they are unbolted you can remove the radio it takes some pulling and tweaking of the brackets but it will come out
