    Wow! I have the same problem. My 2003 F350 has the 6 CD player. I put in an original CD which played great, then when I tried to eject it gave me a (CD ERROR). Now it does not play and not come out. I run through the other 5 slots and found 2 other slots which have CD's in them. Probably from the past owner. This is Fords CD player from the factory not after market. It looks as though it has four screw holds in the front but I think it may have to come down through the dash panel. I really wiould like to get these out and use my CD player when on long drives.

    I have a 2004 F150 Heritage. The factory stock single disc CD player
    won't eject the cd. EJ err flashes across display when I press Eject.
    The CD plays fine, but won't eject. Is there a release mechanism
    somewhere on the player?

    I have a 2004 ford pickup. I have used the CD player since I bought the truck and never had a problem. Yesterday, however, I went to eject the CD and an error message flashed and now the CD is stuck in the player.

  • stenco May 11, 2010

    I have seen this problem quite frequently, but before I can help I would need to know if the head unit is stock, or an after market unit. If it is an aftermarket unit what brand and model, and I would love to try to help.

I have an '03 Explorer with the 6 disc changer. It does the same thing. Many times, you can set the radio to "FM1" and hold down buttons 3 and 6 on the radio. This will put the unit into self diagnostic mode. After it runs the diag., turn off the ignition and remove the key for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes it takes a couple times but it always works on mine.

WARNING: DO NOT START/RUN YOU VEHICLE IN A CLOSED GARAGE OR SIMILAR ENVIRONMENT!

After starting the car and turning the car off, remove the radio fuses. There are two of them (refer to your manual for the location of the box, the correct numbers of the radio fuses, and correct fuse-pulling method). Start your car for a second. Your radio won't come on because the fuses are pulled. Push the power button discharge all inner circuits of the radio. Turn the car off. Put the fuses back in. The radio should initialize and cycle through. If it doesn't at this point start the car again. If the radio still refuses to eject the cd then try the entire fuse-pulling process again (this is what I had to do to solve this problem in my '05 Explorer)

Good luck!

Cd player won't eject the cd out


I don't know exactly how to tell you to fix this problem. I'm not sure if you have just the single disc cd player or the 6 disc cd changer. I just had this same problem a couple months ago. I put my disc changer in one day and it just decided it didn't want to play or eject. I have no clue what caused that to happen. It was stuck in there for about a month and then my Explorer died on me one day. I had to get a new battery. I hooked the new battery up and then out popped the disc changer. I am still not positive if that was the problem but it could possibly have been caused from the battery not having enough juice to fully power it enough to eject it. I'm not sure if that might help you out any but I figured it's worth a shot, ya never know. Well, good luck!

Cd mix 2, right tray says no disc. After about 30 times of loading disc in it finally finds disc and works all night long. Next day problem is back. Why?


If this problem occurs only at this cd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case this doesn't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

2002 Ford Explorer CD player error


First get a CD Lens Cleaner and try it; if not, disconnect the negative lead from your car battery for about 10 min. BUT! Unless you have the radio code make sure you car radio doesn’t have a anti-theft system; if after this few steps still nothing you have to send it to an electronics repair shop (the CD Lens is bad).
