Question about 2004 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

Cd changer wont work

I have a 2004 Ford Freestar minivan, the 6 disc cd changer wont play, eject or accept cd's. I was dumb and ended up killing the battery by playing the radio without the van being on...that's when this all started...it's out of the warranty can this be fixed without having to go to the dealership?!

First make sure you have not burned out a fuse, or the changer has not locked itself out. Are you sure the whole system is working at all? Some factory car audio equipment refuses to work after it has lost power, to foil thieves, and wants a code before it will work again. Read your manual and call the Ford dealer and ask about that.

If it is truly dead, you have two choices. Replace the stock unit or upgrade to something really nice (www.crutchfield.com)

The stock audio equipment is not very good and dies young. It's a source of extra profit for the car manufacturer. They install a low-end component with "Ford" written on it, and charge a hefty price for it in a new car. All the car companies do it.

If you go to the dealership and buy a new one, you will spend many $$ to get an equally poor quality replacement, but it will slide right in there with no work at all and you will be back in business.

You can also find a used one from a auto parts recycler, much cheaper than a brand new unit.
