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)

many moons ago we were asked to do the same thing. back then stackers were all the rage. we found a unit called a simplex devider x12 made by asm china .as to weather they can still be sourced is not known as asm closed there doors long ago they converted most sony/kenwood/clarion/pioneer to each other but as to if you can get one now i dout it but that was how we did it
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
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...
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.
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!!
I have a 2002 Ford explorer and a 6 disc cd changer, all slots are full, no CD's will eject or play. I just took my car to a local body shop, they went under the hood, disconnected my battery, plugged it back up and my CD's came out when I pushed the eject button
i have the same problem with my stock cd player in my ford explorer 2000 and i cant put in a cd till it is cold and if i dont put it in in the morning before i run my vehicle at all i wont be able to get a cd in there till the next day
