    cd stuck in 6 disc changer need to get it out

  • Anonymous Oct 25, 2008

    Is it just me or is this site useless? hopefully no one else here had this issue happen to them the day after they dropped 730.00 for replacement of the "factory upgrade" Sway bar because the front bushings went shitty, and the oxygen sensor - a sweet 127.00 part to get the engine light to go out. I love my lincoln when it works, but this ***** is making me a hater of Lincoln.

There is no way I know of to get disc out. You are most likely going to remove the unit from the dash. Watch this video an see how its done. Very esay. Dont be alarmed Mazda an Ford share same parts.

2002 Lincoln LS cd player won't work after battery


Try checking all of your fuses. Quite often a fuse blows when batteries or alternators are changed. There should be a fuse box in the engine compartment and another under the dash.

yes , remove the top cover , this will expose the entire mechanism , you may have to feel around a bit ,but theres definitly a metal lever or tab of some sort to eject the mag manually , probably on the rear of te open unit

''CDDJ ERROR'' WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PLAY VIA ALPINE CHANGER


My local Lincoln Dealership wanted to dismount the actual Clarion CD changer (I thought, and unfortunately reported to you, that the CD changer manufacturer was the same as the radio/cassettee unit that is installed in my dash, Alpine) from my 99 Town Car and ship the unit out for repair for a minimum of $130.00. Instead, I went to a local Radio Shack franchise who installs/repairs car electronic audio/video systems and they: dismounted the unit from the trunk; took the dismounted unit to their workbench; removed all the housing, etc. and finally were able to manually extract the fully populated 6 CD magazine stuck within the CD changer. Additional efforts (including inserting my spare magazine into the CD changer while it was on the tech's work bench) to determine exactly why the magazine would not eject while the unit was connected via the cabling to the car's power, etc. were not productive. So I now have a totally unassembled non-functioning CD changer on my hands. The "CDEJ Error" on the LED area in the dash when the eject buttoon on the CD changer is pushed.still persists. The technician said that it would be a waste of his time and my money to re-assemble the parts of the CD changer. He believes that the motor on the unit has been burned up.

So I am now checking with all the local auto parts salvage yards (we used to call them junk yards) to see if anyone has a usable Clarion CD changer for a 1999 Lincoln Town Car available that would be plug compatible with my existing Alpine factory installed Premium CD/Cassette audio system and the former factory installed trunk mounted Clarion CD changer. The Radio Shack franchise technician has already checked with the Clarion factory people and they iindicated that they no longer have my Town Car installed CD changer model available, new, used, refurbished or otherwise.

For what it's worth, here are the part numbers and other potentially important data that appear on the "cage"/sheet metal/housing that surrounds the working parts of the CD changer itself:

Assembly Part Number: F8VF-18C849-AE

Part Number (presumably the "cage"?): F8VF-18C830-AE

Date Code: 0998

Serial Number: 0201832

Mounting Orientation: Vertical

System Revision Level: 9.2

So it looks like I may have a potentially very expensive replacement of my whole audio system on my hands. I have been quite happy with my somewhat "obsolete" audio system and I have a very large collection of CDs which I migrate between my Sony 300 CD CDP-CX350 Mega Changer installed in my entertainment center, my car Cd changer and my Sony CD/Cassette player boom box in my master bedroom.

It was suggested to me that if I have to replace the radio/cd/cassette unit installed in the dash of my Town Car that I should consider a replacement model that offers a port to receive Ipod programming as a source of music.

So things have gotten somewhat complicated since the first instance of the Cd magazine not ejecting from the Clarion CD change mounted in the trunk of my car.

Maybe someone out there on your knowledge base knows where I can acquire a used Clarion model CD changer compatible with my car's setup at a reasonable price.

Thanks,

Tom

In both of these cases, the in-dash CD changer will probably need to be repaired or replaced due to internal mechanical damage.

Direct replacements can be purchased from the dealer - you could also replace with an aftermarket radio or a used radio from a junkyard, eBay, etc.(a reputable junkyard or eBay seller will give you a refund/replacement if the unit is DOA - look for them to advertise this fact).

If you want to have your radio repaired, there are repair shops who specialize in factory stereo equipment, such as http://www.sound-repair.com/, http://www.carradiorepairs.com/, and http://www.carstereohelp.com/, among others. I cannot vouch for any of those sites as I haven't personally dealt with them, but they look knowledgeable and professional in my opinion, and their advertised prices are much lower than a replacement from a dealer would be.

As far as radio removal - Pattyp54, if you give me year/make/model of your car I can give you instructions.

Guest with the 2004 Visteon changer - you'll need Ford radio removal tools (available at Wal-Mart and auto parts stores in the car stereo section, approximately $5). They are u-shaped with slight tapers on the ends. Insert these into the holes on the ends of the radio face (you'll want them angled as much as possible with the pin ends going outward towards the dash). Once they are inserted about 1/2-3/4" or so, pull the u-ends outward and pull the radio toward you - it may take some jiggling but should release.

2003 Lincoln LS


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.

hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent.
