If you are lucky the code may still be on the side of the radio. Dealers oftain fail to remove the stock stickers from them when installing them after sale. Failing this, the dealer will be able to retrieve the code for you from their data base. There may be a minimal charge for this privilege.
Hope this helps...
According to the Ford Handbook Error Message E3 is "Mechanical Error " and their suggestion is "Install a new Audio Unit "....which is not very helpful
There`s not much that can be done as a D-I-Y solution with these CD Units apart from cleaning the laser lens with a cleaning disk+solution (from your local audio Store or Ebay etc)....or a full reboot ...by disconnecting the unit from the battery for 20 minutes , replacing it and hoping that it will have reset itself.
Make sure you have the correct radio code before attempting this disconnection procedure ( If not, just post the Serial Number (found on a label on the casing) and someone will calculate the correct code.
