Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
I have a 2001 Ford Windstar with a 6 CD changer and it tells me "CD error". It won't play or eject the CDs. Anything I can do short of taking it to a dealer to possibly fix?
I have the same problem. I agree with no. 1 - it fixed itself when I had work done on the car and they disconnected the battery. It is part of a **** load of electrical problems Ford has with this windstar (ie ABS, wacked out dash indicator lights) and they don't know how or won't do a dame thing about it. What a pain the the a_ _.. Hard pressed to buy another Ford after all this.

I have had the same problem with mine. What I do is remove the radio(you need the u-shaped removers), then unplugged the two connections in the back- don't worry about the antenna plug- it doesn't affect anything. Leave the connectors unplugged about 30 seconds, and plug the back in. At this point you can check to see if it works before reseating it. I have had this car for five years, and when I do this it works about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work first time, it generally works the second time. Once you do it a couple of times, you get the hang of it, and it only takes a minute. Plan B is to disconnect the battery, wait a minute, and reconnect. Same result, more work.

My 2001 Ford Windstar did the same exact thing, it was out of wack for awhile and then one day it just worked, and has ever since. I would just check it periodically, don't force anything, good luck.

None of that worked for me. Any other options?

Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.
Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open and remove the CD.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
