    I also have this problem. Power is going to changer. I can change cd's but I intermittently get bad cd or no cd on the display. I unplug the changer and plug it back in and sometimes that helps. The problem got worse when the weather got cold this winter.

Loction of cd changer plug

the unit at front with the ac controls is just a remote control unit , the radio is in your trunk left side
you have to remove the carpet and you will find a free 13 pin plug , that is the cd changer connector
it is the same in all taurus and sable from 1996 to 2007
the radio looks like this picture

this is the cd changer

Is it possible: change cd changer input to ipod input

I'm afraid not. The best advice I can give you is to get a Radio Tuner Adapter for your I-pod. Most prople will tell you to use a Cassette adapter, and this is fine. However it sounds like you want the best sound you can get from your I-pod. The tuner adapter is the way to get it. You will get a better sound frequency range from your factory tuner than your cassette. The factory Head unit in your Sable isn't bad, just changing the factory speakers will make a huge diffrence. Good Luck, and don't forget to vote.

Seat belt, ABS and radio issues

chances are the seatbelt is jammed and has to be replaced either with a new factory part or a used one. 2nd you probably heated the sending unit for the abs on the wheel and as a result it has thrown the code. 3rd if you have a cd changer it will either be located in the trunk or it will be loocated in the dash console. Note: if you have the abs sending unit replaced you still will need to clear the code so the light goes out.
