Question about Car CD Changers
I'm trying to install a radio in a 1974 Ford LTD, the old wires have been cut so didn't try to figure that mess out, so instead as the manual said I ran a wire off the battery and one from the radio fuse for power then grounded the radio. This has the lights coming on and the CD player working but there is no sound to the speakers. New speakers are being used and new speaker wire was run. Have taken the radio out and tried it in another vehicle and the speakers work, have also tried another radio in this car and came up with the same thing, no sound. What have I done wrong or need to change to get sound in my car?

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.
Hope this Helps

It might be a Bose system. I usually remove stuck CD's by grasping the edge with a pair of tweezers and pulling slowly, there will be some resistance. Try to reset first by removing the fuse for about 30 seconds and after it powers up again (don't turn it on yet) push the eject button.

Hey there, lucky for you that you were able to obtain your passcode, unlike some of us.
To enter the code you hit the number 1 on your stereo w times, the number 2 x times, the number 3 y times, and the number 4 z times, then hit 5 once. Based on your code, wxyz. Ie if your code is 4316, hit 1 on the stereo 4 times then 2 3 times, 3 once, 4 six times, then hit 5.
