I bought the above car from a dealer. Factory installed Infinity system. CD player DOA. Discovered a cd stuck inside - removed still doa. Bought another, mostly because of in dash display (clock, station, track etc) but also because I've been told that if I do an after market system, I'll have to replace the amp too. I didn't know until now that there is a factory code. I've never disconnected power but don't know if someone else did. What do you advise?

Re: disconnected power to sound system
If the power was interrupted, chances are it will ask for the code. You will have to check with the person you purchased the deck from if they still have the codes. I recently swapped out one of the Infinity decks and it actually didn't ask me for the code when I reinstalled it. I would recommend trying it before spending any time looking for the codes. Other than that, the Mits dealership will be able to tell you how to contact Infinity for a code reset if required. Be prepared though, there is usually a fee charged for the reset.

The Infinity system includes a CD/cassette receiver or a CD receiver in the dash, and a complement of 7 speakers: 3-1/2" speakers in the dash (left, right), a 2-1/2" center dash speaker, two 6"x9" woofers in the front doors, and two 5-1/4" speakers in the rear doors. You'll have to remove a section of the dash to install a new stereo, as you do with the non-Infinity system. You'll need a special adapter to connect a new car stereo to the Infinity factory amp http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120CHTO02/Axxess-CHTO-02-Factory-Integration-Adapter.html?tp=3486
I have different experiance with the C.Dplayer ( error 3 ) , there is no need to remove it nor send it to the dealer ,all you have to do when you have `` Error 3 `` is to reset the C.D player , by recycling the power supply ,this can be done by disconnecting the main car battery power supply , you must also keep the battery disconnected for at least one hour . then connect the cables to the batteries ,when you start the C.D player you will hear some clicking sound ,and watch the numbers of the C.D`s in the display you will find all what is inside has been detected by the display .
and your C.D player is back to normal..
i discovered ths by chance , when I had this error in the past ,coincidently I had to replace the battery and after installing the new batteries ,i was suprised to see the player back to normal condition by its self.
Go to any car audio installer or your local ford dealer and ask to borrow their stereo removal tools. Or you could buy some yourself from an auto parts shop, not too expensive. Use these to pop the stereo out and, unless you have the security code, DON'T disconnect the plugs at the back. If you do need to disconnect the plugs, write down the serial number of the stereo (M0----) and call a dealer to get the code. Remove the star / torx drive screws that hold the top cover down and lever the cover off. Using a couple of screwdrivers through the centre hole of the cds, pull them up until you can align the cd with the inside of the slot that you normally insert them through, and force them back out through there. Do that with all the cds, and then reassemble. This is not as easy as it sounds, and you have to be a bit rough with the cds to release them from the changer, but just be careful not to damage the cd player any further if you're planning to get it fixed at some point.
Hope this helps,
My CD player did the same thing on my 2005 Chevy Malibu MAXX LS. I know it sounds weird, but disconnect the car battery from the car (resetting the whole car system), and then reconnect. I pressed the eject button on the console, and it ejected my CD with no problem.
