Question about Car Audio & Video
I HAVE A 2004 FORD EXPLORER. I HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE CD PLAYER UNTIL ABOUT 2 DAYS AGO. I HAVE PLAYED ALL KINDS OF CD'S INCLUDING ONES MY HUSBAND MADE ON HIS COMPUTER. 2 DAYS AGO I PUT IN AN ORIGINAL CD AND IT PLAYED JUST FINE. BUT NOW THE PLAYER WILL NOT EJECT THE CD. WHEN I PRESS EJECT IT TELLS ME THERE IS AN ERROR. HOW DO I GET MY CD OUT WITH OUT DAMAGING THE PLAYER AND THE CD. AND CAN THIS BE FIXED WITH OUT HAVING TO PURCHASE A NEW CD PLAYER. PLEASE 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)
