    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!

On my ford explorer xls, the cd player just reads


Call the local dealership over the phone tell them your stock stereo player is in security mode, give them the code it's displaying to you and they will give you an unlock code. Easy as pie :)

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer Limited which has a 6 cd player. I do not have satellite service. A couple of days ago, I pulled into my driveway and turned off the ignition. After the engine cut off, the CD...


If it's a remotely installed CD changer (not in-dash) you've got a pretty good chance of getting it operational again. You need to pull the unit out of the vehicle and take the cover off of it. #1 phillips screws 6 or 7 pop the top and look down at the loading mechanism, chances are it tried to eject a cd int an occupied slot and jammed. Gently slide the cd back towards the player side so it's out of the cartridge, leave the top off and plug it back into the truck. it should automatically reset itself. If this is sucessful, eject the cartridge and inspect the slots, if they are warped or bent, replace it with a new one. If you have a Laser Lens Cleaner that uses fluid, use it. If not, get one, they can be purchased at almost any retailer for 15-20 and will extend the life of the lens quite a bit. Run it thru 3 or 4 times a year, it only takes a minute. If your unit is an in dash changer... It's kinda the same process, but alot more work. The unit has to be pulled out of the dash, which takes a little time, then it has to be disassembled, if your not a nuts n bolts kinda guy/gal, let a car audio shop do it for you. If you need more help, post a comment and I'll help some more. Hope this helps

Stock 1997 Ford Explorer 6 CD changer stopped playing CDs


We finally realized that all of the "advisers" on the internet want to charge for their advice, and their advice in this case is univerally that the unit should just be replaced. Ya think?! Could of figured that one out on our own.....what a joke...

My ford ka cd player only plays out of one speaker


When I first got my Ka, the wiring between the car and the door was snapped. If you open the door there is a rubber tubing, if u assume 2 wires are snapped and try 2 pull them together through the rubber tubing you should hear a crackle if thats the fault. Even if you do not, it will almost certainly be this. To fix it, you need 2 use a stanley knife 2 cut open the rubber tubing then connect the to snapped wires together. I did this by getting a small amount of speaker cable and adding it 2 both ends, using plenty of insulation tape. This is the most common fault for speaker problems in the Ka.

Hope this Helps

6 disk cd changer in 2002 Ford Explorer V8 AWD


This is going to sound stupid, but mine (2002 EB Explorer V8) had the same problem, and I expected it was some kind of mechanical problem (could hear motors TRYING to push CDs out). So, figuring that the next step was to get an aftermarket stereo anyway, I punched the front of it with my fist over and over while pushing eject between each punch, and to my surprise, after about 30 seconds, the whole thing was fine. It's been fine for the 2 months since then, too.. I wouldn't recommend this unless you're ready to give up and your next step is to trash the radio!!
