Re: 2003 Ford Explorer CD Player (Single to 6 disc)
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.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Go to a Salvage Yard or contact Car-parts.com which is a collection of online parts salvagers. There were optional radios which had this feature and also a 6 CD stack for the trunk.
The biggest thing would be to make sure the wiring is compatible if going to a trunk mount. But a dash mount single radio/CD is probably the cheapest way and I would think the speaker wires should be compatible.
The manufactuers used a 4 pin lock system in the front dash facing of the radio. You can get the simple release pin barbs at Walmart or most autoparts places. Just insert the barb pin stems into the 4 square holes and press and the radio should come out.
You listed this in the auto section, so I'm not sure just where you have the problem. When you receive an error like this and you've tried several disks with the same result it means your CD player is bad and must be replaced.
I don't know exactly how to tell you to fix this problem. I'm not sure if you have just the single disc cd player or the 6 disc cd changer. I just had this same problem a couple months ago. I put my disc changer in one day and it just decided it didn't want to play or eject. I have no clue what caused that to happen. It was stuck in there for about a month and then my Explorer died on me one day. I had to get a new battery. I hooked the new battery up and then out popped the disc changer. I am still not positive if that was the problem but it could possibly have been caused from the battery not having enough juice to fully power it enough to eject it. I'm not sure if that might help you out any but I figured it's worth a shot, ya never know. Well, good luck!
unplug the power to the cd player for about 10 minutes or so. usually that reqiures unhooking the car battery. if that radio is of the anti-theft variety make sure you know the code and how to enter it before you remove power
your ancient ?? 6 disk changer ?? they went out with the ark and cds .Get yourself a cd player with a usb and SD card .A 1gb sd card holds a lot of music a 4gb usb thingy evan more so why mess around with a cd changer ?????? might as well put the old 8 track player back in.if its a 98 then no problem changing it .Its too old to have the new invention of knocking off the computer this is only to stop non dealer audio shops from fitting new sound systems.Or do what i do in cases like this and mount under dash just like in the 60s
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
