Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Just got a 1996 Ford Taurus and wanted to get a tape adapter for my iPod. I insert the adapter, the deck at first spits it back out, I think because I didn't push the tape in hard enough. I try again and the adapter goes in and then down. I connect the adapter to the iPod and push play and the "tape" button on the dash. The dash then says, " no tape", so I try to eject it, but it says again, "no tape". I tried to pry it out with a screwdriver but I have to pull it up and then towards me. I can only start pulling up from the right side. The left side is more stubborn. I tried to wedge my way to the left in hopes of putting the adapter all the way up so I can try to pull it out, but it feels like the adapter will break, so I never go far enough. Does anybody know of any other way? Maybe replace the broken detector if that's the case? I don't know if the player works with non-adapter tapes, the previous owner never used the tape deck in any way...
Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.
