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.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The radio with a 6 disc changer stock wont eject cds in my 2001 ford windstar van with double sliding auto open/close doors


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open and remove the CD.




Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Mazda Tribute 2001 6 CD Changer jammed. E 01 flashes. What to do?


Hi, if its the standard matsushita (Panasonic) double DIN head unit then unfortunately it's a mechanical issue, and due to the intricacy of this fine autochanger it is beyond economical repair, check: http://www.browse.to.it/c6.html for the picture, It's a new unit, to test 1st disconnect the old (broken) CD unit and check that it's the same make (ie not Sanyo) and with the same connector and that the radio functions 100% - Duncan

CD Changer not reading CDs


2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix.
p.s :
1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it.
2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up.
Good luck.

Bose 6 cd changer factory installed will not function.


Some people with this issue have had some sucess disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes to reset the stereo. After re-connecting the battery, the stereo should reset and the error message should clear at which point the CD player should also function. Apart from this, a service call at a dealer or a car stereo repair specialist are the only alternatives. Best of luck.

CD changer will not accept CD's


I got the ERROR 3 on my Lexus RX330 2004 CD changer, and fixed this problem myself. My CD changer now works fine for more than one month after the repair, and hopefully will continue to work in the future )))) First, I opened top cover of changer ( about 8 screws ). Next step is most difficult - need to detach 4 tiny springs on top corners that hold metal top plate and keep them in the same place not allowing them to fall down (detach the spring, then hook the top with paper clip as to not let the bottom come detached and lose the spring inside). I used paper clips for holding the springs on the coners of the metal frame. Next need to take the metal plate out and then all plastic CD trays with CDs, the plastic trays may jam a little when being lifted out, but they will come out. Take all CDs and don't use them in the changer anymore. Seems the CD changer doesn't like CD-R's. So, use original CDs. Actually I an going to record new CD's using good blank media from good manufactures, will try to see whats gonna happen. So, take out all plastic CD trays keep them in order and facing the right way. After removing all CDs put all things back. Do everything very gently because all parts very precise and easy to break. The cd changer showed "Error 3" for the rest of the evening but then next day was fine and has been working fine since then. I think the computer had to be reset overnight to clear that error. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to PM me.

CD player (6 disc changer) "locked up"


Take it to the dealership, your G35 should have a 4 year bumper to bumper on it. They'll replace the radio under warranty most likely.
