I just had this happen the other day. It completely jammed up. I ended up having to remove the radio and disassemble the upper changer section to get the disks out. The problem with mine was that one of the disk trays broke and jammed the mechanism. I ended up gutting the changer and and reassembling the radio and installing it in the car to use the AM/FM function. I'm currently in the search for a new radio to swipe the CD changer off of since even radios that you do not have the security code for will work as the coding is in the radio section and not the CD changer. The changer attaches to the top of the radio with 2 T8 and 4 T10 screws and connects with a ribbon cable between the two modules. You'll see the ribbon cable when the top CD changer mechanism. Be careful removing CDs this way as if the player's rotating assembly is not retracted, it is very easy to scratch the disk. Unfortunately I lost a Velvet Revolver disk this way. Good luck! If you are on one of the the big boards I go by TR GTO on both if you need to contact me and I'll walk you through it.
sounds like the tray inside was misaligned when the cd went in. and it probally sent the disc into a occupied slot. you will have to remove radio and disassemble to repair. also try just unpluging radio and plug back in. sometimes it resets the radio and will start ejecting the cds
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.
I just fixed my 2005 RX330 CD changer jam, and saved $800-1000. It was easy, if you first spend $6 at:
Here you will find pics and instructions on how to remove the stereo/changer. Mine was a Pioneer, and the stereo came out in 5 minutes. I could not find instructions how to take it apart, so I experimented a little. The secret was to take the top lid off the changer - 9 little screws, and a piece of black tape. Under the lid, I found my problem - a CD had been inserted too soon (the WAIT sign actually means what it says!), and I just lifted it off the top plate. Under the plate I could see 2 more CDs, in the 6 slot holder, but they seemed to be free and not jammed. So without reassembling the stereo, I plugged it back in. The changer cycled, I hit eject twice to get the other CDs out, and all is well.
This means Weak Radio Frequency.... try changing the radio frequency, and you should have no problems :D.... Please rate answer... and i wish you the best of luck, because i know from experience that audio equipment is not cheap... ask questions if you have anymore :)
