I was hit from behind rather hard and since then my radio works but the cd says cd error whenever I try to eject or play cds. Is there a reset button on the player? Or possibly a new bracket is needed? Not sure what to do? Any thoughts or suggestions?
Re: Ford Explorer 2003: pioneer: factory 6 CD error
I dare say your cd player has had something move internally from the shock of the accident and thats whats causing the fault. lol either that or someone has gone and forced a 7th cd into it. i think the cheapest and easiest way to fix this would be to get a fascia kit and a new cd player beacuse ford will charge like a wounded bull for a replacement one. this is what i did after i serviced my car and got given the wrong code for the cdplayer from the ford dealership

OK I am no expert but I have has this exact same problem......TWICE. I just addressed it again this afternoon by disconnecting the battery. Once reconnected the radio "initialized" and I was able to eject all cd's and use the player again. I can only speculate as to the cause but it could be because at least 3 of the cd's contained MP3's burned from my ITunes library. I will stick to audio cd's and see if it happens again!
I really have had this happen several times, and the fix is simple. It is going to sound weird when I say this but trust me it really will work. That your hand and hit your dashboard with your fist closed. then push the eject button, it will work. You want to hit your fist right over the radio, don't hit it super hard just hard just hard enough to shake the radio as if you hit a pot hole. It is more then likely one specific CD it will not do that with other cds. Try it I promise you it will work.
remove the cd player and most likely replace - but try taking it out and finding the reset button - - hit reset and there u go - sometimes it works - also check and make sure no one stuck something smaller than a cd in the hole --
This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help
You will have to go to Best Buy, or whatever your nearest audio installation place is, and request wiring harnesses for the type of radio you are putting in, and also the type of vehicle, I believe you can put any aftermarket stereo in any vehicle, as long as it fits in the dashboard. Hope it helps.
