    Yeah same problem probably due to a CD-R I hear. I wonder if the cold has anything to do with it? anyway I tried disconnecting the battery for 20 min as suggested and while it behaves a bit differently, still have not been able to get it out. Just for kicks I tried heating the interior up with a hair dryer, to no avail.

SOURCE: cd error

I hate to be the bearer of bad news... that error code means that you have a CD that's bad in the 6 disc changer.... If you're handy... you can take your radio out and manually remove the cd's and make sure that the 6 trays are aligned properly and not stuck together. (known issue) However, Lexus/Toyota does NOT repair ANY of their electrical components. They want you to pay for a NEW one at the tune of 800.00 PLUS installation... and they send the old one back to Japan and remove the CD's and mail them to you. (at no extra cost... as the service rep was telling me.. as to benefit feature me on the sale of the replacement unit.) Next be ready for the "Disc Read Error, Check Disc" on your navigation... lol.. it's a 2.10 motor that moves the lens that reads the DVD navigation CD.. and once again .. they don't replace or repair... that's a 4500.00 item plus installation.. GOTTA LOVE YOUR EXPENSIVE CAR NO? ;)

2002 Ford Explorer CD player error


First get a CD Lens Cleaner and try it; if not, disconnect the negative lead from your car battery for about 10 min. BUT! Unless you have the radio code make sure you car radio doesn’t have a anti-theft system; if after this few steps still nothing you have to send it to an electronics repair shop (the CD Lens is bad).

Hi what does Error 03 mean?


My endeavor has done this error 3 a couple of times and the cd changer basically shuts off all lights and won't do anything. Someone on another solution page said to slide a credit card back and forth in the cd opening to fix the problem. I've done this both times and it has made the changer play again as if nothing had happened : )
