Question about 2003 Ford Focus

2003 Ford Focus Blaupunkt Cd Player issue!!!!

I tried to program a radio station into my blaupunkt cd player and the cd player started going crazy. It turns on and off intermittently, even when the car is off. I had to disconnect the battery just to get it to turn off. When turning on the cd player after the battery was disconnected and reconnected I had the same problem. I don't know if you can run a code on these or how to troubleshoot. This is the cd player with the six preset buttons and the big screen. Please help!! I have the same problem, 2003 focus. it happened while I was setting a station as well. I will try the reset option someone mentioned, although when it first happened I tried that and it kept going on and off so I couldn't even make it to the menu. hope this work!

I pulled the fuse
put the fuse back in
turn on the radio, insert a CD
pulled the fuse again, counted to 5
inserted the fuse again
while the CD started playing I clicked the Menu button and used the tunning dial to select default settings, and it asks if you want to reset default choose yes.
my radio works fine now!

thanks to all who posted this solution it works!

2010 Toyota Camry CD player showing CDIN even when the cd is not inside. how to remove this problem

Try removing the battery cables. Then replace them in a minute. This will cancel everything on the radio and cause a reset. You will have to program all your radio station presets, but it may resolve the issue. If not, I would consider replacing the whole system. The life expectancy of Toyota audio systems is not the best. I have had many Camrys, and they usually quit after 6-7 years. But the cars will run forever !

Can't change radio stations or skip cd trac

The Buttons on the Selector Switch are dirty or
Your Radio is needs to be replaced...

I would start with Testing the Circuit Board and wiggling the Faceplate but chances are you are going to need to replace the radio

Battery will jump, not hold charge. While driving, cd player and radio come on and off by itself. Also other electrical issues like the electric seat and door locks are intermittantly acting up.

Electrical problem in cars can be a real bear to troubleshoot. Suggestions are a leak to ground draining the battery. Bad battery a possibility but this wouldn't explain the other problems. Check that you have good grounds and connections. This kind of problem can have pros scratching their heads but a good one might zero right in on the problem.

Radio in 2003 jeep grand cherokee does not play cd's. it plays the radio stations, volume works, but it does not eject the cd or even recognize it .

you can look for a radio shop to repair the cd player it would be cheaper to install a aftermarket radio they do have kits if you have steering wheel controls

The player will not eject the cd but it will not play it either.

I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.
