    The CD holder is out! Now that the whole thing is opened, I tried putting in again to see if it'll work. It loaded and starting playing songs to my surprise. But you are right about crooked holder. There are several black rubber bubble holding each corner, and they appear to be deflated. Are these the spring you are talking about that are causing the holder to be misaligned? If so, do I replace the bubble or simply out of luck, and has to get a new one altogether? Thanks for you help.

Don't waste your money and buy those repair manuals. There is an easy fix for this. The rootcause is most likely related to your disc tray (crooked carrier or broken spring). Just get a small screwdriver and take out the two black srews of the inner faceplate, covering the cassette tray itself. Please make sure you do not drop those tiny screws. Use a magnetic tip screw driver. Take the faceplate off. You will see a litlle lever in the center. Just push it aside and your cassette will pop out with no problem. That simple. So don't waste your money!!!

2007 ford taurus air bag light on after replacing stereo


The CD changer option is similar to the single-disc player. The CD changer has the ability to toggle between the stereo and the multi-disc changer. In the 2007 Ford Taurus, the CD changer is located either in the vehicle's trunk or in the center console and has a magazine that can hold up to six CDs.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My radio volume just stopped working but you can see the channels and change from different stations what is wrong with it


If you have volume but cannot control it, this is a common problem. The volume is optical so it may just have dust in it, but I have had zero luck cleaning them. The only solution I know is to replace the whole head unit.
If you have an HK factory stereo with no volume at all, and the four channels went out one at a time, the amp in the trunk has failed. Another common problem. The amp is on the driver side above the wheel well. You have to remove the driver side rear deck speaker to get the trunk lining off without tearing it. The screws that hold in the speaker are beneath the speaker grill in the rear deck. Good luck getting a 15-year-old speaker grill up without breaking the snaps. Slide a putty knive in from the sides to try to release them, but they will break anyway.
If the amp has failed, you can just bypass the amp but you will have no subs or tweeters. I did that while looking for a good deal on a junkyard amp. You can buy a new HK amp from BMW but they are prohibitively expensive. You could buy an alternate brand amp and add crossover circuits to power the subs and tweeters if you are really handy with electronics.

If you have an HK system in your BMW and you replace the head unit, use the antenna power wire from the new stereo as the 'on' signal for your HK amp in the trunk. Your FM may not work quite as well because the BMW head unit communicates with the antenna amplifier. Also, if you have a BMW CD changer in your trunk, no other head unit will communicate with that other than the original BMW head unit.
Other than the CD changer and the antenna amplifier, the wiring adapter that you can get from Crutchfield or from Amazon will make the stereo head unit replacement plug-and-play.
You may need a special five-sided wrench to get the old stereo out. You can buy that wrench on line if you can't force some other tool into those two cap screws that hold the stereo in.

I get E-01 error of my cd changer


The fault is actually inside the CD changer, when one disc is selected the changer moves the gearing inside to slot from one CD to the other.
While this operation is happening the selection arm jams !!
Then giving an error at the radio display..

To fix the problem, disconnect the CD changer from the trunk of the car,
take off the top plastic slide cover,
with a small screwdriver slowly move the gearing so that the CD disc holder will move back to the load - unload position.

Pop out the CD holder.

Replace unit, reconnect the optic and power lead, switch on radio and the unit will work again,

grease the moving parts with light lubricant

Good Luck

Wont play through stereo


the changer plays through the fm on the radio, you need to find out what station it is tuned to. should be between 88 and 95 or so. you could just try seeking until the changer is picked up.

Getting ERR message on CD Player


My kids always cause this one ! Switch off power, remove cover. Remove four screws holding top black plastic disc cover and then remove all of the black plastic ( x 7 ) disc holders. You may find that the aluminium cross structure has come adrift. Replace into the slots again and replace all the disc holders. If you want, you can check before replacing cover, by then ejecting and 'disc skipping'. It should thne be ok. If it has been forced, the aluminium cross structure thing may have also come out of the slot it should in in on the right hand side. Slide the disc frame in or out until it can be fitted and retest.
