Have you tried ejecting the cd magazine from the changer? If so, and it's doing this, try gently prying along the top and bottom of the changer while it's making that noise. If it's in the console, there's a possibility that something got spilled into the magazine at some point (maybe a long time ago) and has now literally got the magazine stuck. If you get it out, try taking out the 4 small screws to see if there is any residue in there. If so, rubbing alcohol and q-tips are a great way to clean it up. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: poor gas mileage on 2008 Ford taurus

Are you using the correct grade of fuel.
Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon.
This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road.
Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage.
Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph
good luck

SOURCE: the battery keeps draining and

This may be over-simplified, but to find the battery drain: Remove the positive battery cable from the battery and insert an ammeter in series beween battery and cable. If something is draining the battery, it will show on the ammeter. Remove fuses one-by-one until you see a substantial reduction in the ammeter reading. That will pinpoint the circuit that is draining the battery. Then troubleshoot until you find the faulty component, wiring harness, etc. Remember there will always be a little bit of drain because of ECM, BCM, radio memory and stuff like that.

SOURCE: park lights and dash lights won't stop flashing

There is a small black box under dash by steering column that has a little red button on it. Push that button and it will reset the alarm. Whenever the power is removed from the system it will trigger that alarm and flash your lights. Easy quick fix. Box is about 4" x4" and just to the left of the column. Good luck and have a great day.

2007 ford taurus air bag light on after replacing stereo


The CD changer option is similar to the single-disc player. The CD changer has the ability to toggle between the stereo and the multi-disc changer. In the 2007 Ford Taurus, the CD changer is located either in the vehicle's trunk or in the center console and has a magazine that can hold up to six CDs.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1999 Ford SE digital display reads ''NO CD'' and changer is stuck


Magazine-type CD changers are prone to jamming with a disc in transit between the magazine and the player. You may have to resort to disassembling the trunk unit to get access to the jam.

My battery died now disc player says no discs please help?


Very tricky, my suggestion is to restart the radio again see if it reads the CDs this time. Try removing the radio fuse, where all the other fuses are at. Turn the radio on without the fuse, press and hold a button for a minute just to make sure you drain the electricity from the changer. Then put the fuse back and see what happens. You can also disconnect the negative or ground from the battery wait five minutes and connect it again but this will also restart the car computer.

check the fuse 1st, but chances are the changer is defective and will have to sent out, these changers are really prone to this problem. Even if the fuse is blown what made it blow? most likely a short in the changer.
