CD Player won't work. CD's are stuck in player. Yhey won't play or eject. Any attempt to use any function of CD player results in CD ERROR displayed.
Can I fix this myself or do I need a whole new unit(which I can't afford)?
Ok, am I to assume this is a 6disc in dash?
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
is it the factory one,or not.if it is pull the radio fuse,let it reset itself,about 10 min,replace fuse also check to see if fuse is blone.
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.
glad I could help.
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. email@example.com
I had the same problem removed the two fuses I think #28,29 for over 30 minutes; check to be sure they had not blown which they had not; reinserted them ; turned key on and out came my CD!
Where are the fuses located don't know much about cars lol
They are just inside drivers door on the side of the dash under a cover. And my book says #27 & #29.
Will I have to reprogram radio if I disconnect the battery?
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".
