Question about Car CD Changers
I' having issues with my 2003 Lincoln LS 6 CD changer. It abruptly stopped working today. I get a cd error.
I cannot eject the disk, play a disk, or shuffle. I get a "cd error" message.
I am wondering if it is possible to reboot the cd. My experience with software influences me to take such action..
My 2001 Lincoln LS has done this 3 or 4 times in the last 8 years. I disconnected the battery (for a minute), pulled the fuse, held the 'load' 'eject' button simultaneously for about 1 minute, banged on the dash, slid a credit card along the opening...prayed : ) For 2 days it wouldn't work. Then today I pressed the CD button and it worked. I immediately removed the one 'burned' CD that I had in slot 5, The only think I can think might have affected it was-
1. Put in a new CD that one of our local gospel groups made.
2. Weather had been quite warm, then 2 days ago, it got freezing cold outside again????
I don't know? Probably just an idiopathic occurrence.
It is the Alpine head, LS sports package.

I think you will most likely have to replace the factory unit. That problem is very common with cd changers. it's a mechanical issue. is it the cd changer on the stereo itself?

I had the same problem. I took mine apart and found that a gear had fallen out of the CD changing unit, I found it in the radio and put it back on the motor it belonged to. There will be a little hole with a post in it on the bottom of the changer, not the whole unit, you must separate the two pieces.

SOURCE: 2003 Lincoln LS
That is the problem of cds changer today. However, maybe that could be resolve by severe examination in where is the source of the problem. some causes made by dust inside, just blow it by a blower, wrong position of the tray, the alignment should be fix, Power off the and disconnect power for almost a minute and hooked it back ..Hope you should be ok.
