SOURCE: need to remove radio from 2003 ford f150

Remove the center oval trim panel. I usually just grab in the HVAC vents and pull, but you might want to use a plastic trim tool to work your way around the center trim bezel.

Pro Fit International has some good directions with pictures ( obviously only use them for accessing the radio, no need to continue for the vehicle specific mount )

This should be your MY and make ( right click save as ):

Once the radio is exposed, you will see 2 sets of round holes on each side.
You can buy the tools, or just bend a wire coat hanger in the required shape to insert into the holes to release the radio.

These are usually called Ford DIN Radio Removal Tool ( or similar ) if you want to purchase the actual tools, but I have had good luck with the coat hanger DIY tool.

SOURCE: how do i remove radio from ford f150- 2003

the holes you see in the corners of the radio, approximately 1/8" diameter. You have to ahve a special tool that goes into the holes to release the radio. If you have a thin enough screwdriver you can slide it through the holes, however you may need two to get it to release.

2004 truck delco radio 5 disc cd player. cd


Common for the CD to get stuck on the Delco radio, Try resetting the radio by disconnecting the battery for 5 min and then reinstalling the cables. This will reset the radio and you should get your CD to work again, if there is an issue. You going to have to go to the dealer and they are going to have to use a Tech2 scanner to reset and reprogram the radio. If there is any mechanical issues the Tech2 scanner will identify the issues, but 90% of the time. It's just a simple reset and the other 10% is a reprogram or replacing the unit.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Code for radio, changed battery and now no power


Check the manuel, the code may have been written in there and give you the instructions to resetting the radio, and check for a sticker in the glove box for the radio code. If you have a good relationship with the dealer they may even help you reset your radio without a fee or minimal amount.
Good luck and if that does not help you and they want a crazy amount to reset the radio try www.radio-code.com. Keep me posted
