In most Ford products the lights for the wiring are connected to the fuse for the radio itself unless it's for the clock in which that has power all the time but has nothing to do with the lighting. I have seen in some cases where the GEM can cause this as well as some fuses for the instrument cluster but in most cases there you would have lighting problems in more then just the radio or CD player. I did not look at the wiring for your vehicle so am not sure but can if need be. I did give you a picture of the layout and explanation for each fuse in both your fuse panels and you can make an educated guess on which ones to try and will see the ones you won't even need to bother with. I believe you are looking at a wiring problem but could be wrong, I am not perfect (just don't tell my wife) but have been a mechanic for over 25 years, own my own shop and am a Ford electronics specialist but of course they are not all the same. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. if you don't and would like a copy, you can email me at with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. Here are your pictures and I hope they help.....Good luck.

Installed a new battery and suddenly my cd player reads "error" when I insert a cd. Could this be a fuse or something? Anything I can try to fix it? I think it's part of the theft deterrent sys

usually a blown fuse will shutdown your radio until u get a new fuse so im not thinking fuse.... is the laser that reads cds is that clean???? if unsure they make cds with brushes on the bottom of them and as u put them in it brushes off that laser as the cd with brushes spins. or even simpler just try blowing out the inside maybe its just dirty or a cheap radio. cheap radios cause a lot of problems.... hope i helped.......

CD stuck in CD player and won't eject.

Disconnect the fuse for the radio. This is cause the radio to reboot. You do not need to mess with the battery. After replacing the fuse, or removing, it, and putting it back in, you can proceed to try to remove the CD. I used a pair of tweezers.I actually jammed two CDs into the player. Hope this helps.

Cd player radio overhead light and trunk light not work

I can only answer this genericaly:

Check for a blown use at the auto's fuse box. Take care that there may be more than one location with fuses. If you call the dealer, most likely they can tell you right away where the fuse is located.

In many cars they are using electronic modules to control the lighting and etc. If this is the case with your model of car, it is possible that the electronic control module may have to be changed.
