   The carriage inside the cd player is half way in mode.  Which means the cd has to be removed mechanically.  In order to do this a qualified technition needs to dismantle it.  On some models there is a reset switch next to the eject button on he changer.  It will be very small.  like the size of a paper clip hole. push in with a pin.  Otherwise go to stereo shop

Sounds like the battery is completely dead. It's either a faulty battery(go and have it checked) or a dead alternator. To check if the alternator is bad, once the car is started, remove the negative battery cable, if it stays on, then the alternator is good, if it dies immediately, then the alternator is bad and needs replacement.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

key code lock out usually happens when you have entered the wrong code too many times leaving the battery connected should allow the timer to run down for 30 mins so you can try again, it is cumulative though so the more you get it wrong the longer you have to wait. make sure battery is fully charged first.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee battery will drain

Ditto here on a 2005 jeep. We bought it new and found the battery dead on a few mornings the first year. Nothing left on. Did the new alternator thing about 2 yrs. ago and a few batteries along the way. This is what we noticed..... If you leave a CD in the CD player, that is the prime little devil that sucks out the juice. Now, we never turn off the car while a CD is in the dash. Now, maybe not necessary every time, but always overnight and now by habit, all the time, we make sure there is no CD inserted when the car is off. Hope this helps.

Same exact problem

Okay it could be one of 2 things. A) you are leaving something on in the car such as lights or leaving a door open a little. B) you have a bad alternator. To check it once you have a complete charged battery, start the car. Let it run fora few mins. while the car is running disconnect the battery. (this is completely safe) If the car turns off you have a bad alternator. Please let me know the outcome.

Electrical Demon in my 1999 Taurus SHO

could be a bad diode in the alternator. make sure the car is off with batery conected and charged. need a test light and jumper cable and digital multimeter. disconect only the negative cable conect one end of test light to batery cable and the other end to batery terminal.if the amp draw is higher than 4 amps it will light conect the multimeter to the neg batery cable with red probe and black probe to neg batery terminal . multi meter on (dc 10a) if it reads between 0.8amps and 1.5amps a light is on or a relay is stuck. to check relays use a old wll charger (phonecharger) cut ends of and connect one wire to 85 and other to 86 on realy it should click. now use the multimeter select continuity and see if it beeps. if it does it works. now remove the phonecharger. and reconet the multi meter to 30 and 87 on relay it should not beep. buy a multi meter from wall mart (innova ) for $30
