If Petamus1 has the same unit I do, the answer is YES. My indash unit is exhibiting the same issues. Any idea how to self-repair? Thanks in advance

papa - thx for reply; it's the solution that worked for me. To answer your question - it's a factory unit. I pulled both fuses for the unit to reset it (the fuses were both good). Worked like a charm. Other posts on web have talked about pulling the unit out to unhook the wiring harness or unhooking battery post to accomplish the same thing - but fuse pulling is a heckuva lot easier. Did not have to wait 10 minutes and didn't even lose my radio presets. Got my 5 cds out after 3 months of being stuck.

I'm having the same problem that you had back in February. You mentioned that you removed "both fuses". I could only find one radio fuse and I removed it for about 30 minutes but this did not fix the problem. Where is a second fuse. Thanks. wepropst@sc.rr.com

I have the same issue with my 04 xlt, the battery ran down, needed a 5 min charge with jumper cables. I unhooked the battery for 30 min, had to reprogram. Also removed both fuses for 30 min as well. The issue is not fixed. When I press eject it says "initializing".
