Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Hi, the tape deck in my 2004 Ford Taurus SEL wagon is running slow, so music played sounds off. I am thinking of purchasing a tape converter for our mp3 player in the car. Will the slower speed affect the power to the mp3 player? Any suggestions for speeding the player up? Thanks.

Well first off have you thought about getting a CD deck that has AUX input so you can hook up your MP3 to the deck by an AUX cable. as far as the tape player running slow i would say it needs to be cleaned by a professional because the little rubber belt may be going bad also. If you want to go to a AUX CD deck look at crutchfield.com or go to an authorized kenwood dealer in your area and look for the kenwood KDC-MP245. Going through the AUX instead of tape would sound a little bit better and if you want to go a bit better than the AUX then you should go to the KDC-HD545U. The KDC-MP245 is $99.99 before shipping and the KDC-HD545U is $169.99 before shipping. I hope I answered your question and please vote and leave high marks. Thank you very much.

98 Ford Taurus Se tape deck issue


Buy a new tape adapter, the tape player heads are either dirty or out of adjustment. The problem will persist, but a new tape adapter may make it work again. It's very hard to find a replacement for a tape player now as they're obsolete. Your best bet to find a replacement is like you've already done... source one from a salvage yard. Good luck with that!

I don't own and am not familiar with this device but my advice would be to turn all progs off. As long as you are not on the internet and you have no media connected then turning the anti virus off is safe as your computer is in a stable condition. I would also try using a different usb slot if you have that option as the distorted sound you are describing may be coming from interference with your usb port or cable. Good luck and I hope you manage to record those tapes!

Tape Deck does not recognize tape adapter. Does not eject.


Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

Cheers !

ECU compatibility


You can try to replace with a similar unit, but typically Ford ECUs have to be "reflashed" by the dealer. Ford has numerous calibration codes and various other vehicle specific information that can only be managed with Ford certified (dealer) programing devices. I hope this helps

Motor plays at a very slow speed


capstan belt may be failing. check this by removing lid and touch the capstan flywheel when running. if it is easily stalled/slow to come up to speed and or the belt slipping badly then belt will require replacement.
