What can you do about a 6 disc CD changer in an 03 Eddie Bauer Expedition that won't load shows full but doesn't eject?
Pull the fuse or unplug power to the unit, wait a minute and put the fuse/plug back in. Sometimes that will reset it.
I have found that a lot of burnt cd's are a hair bigger in diameter and get jammed in the Ford 6 disc changer... Just remove the stereo take the cover off manually remove the disc on top then plug it back in and it should eject all the other ones unless there are more that are stuck...
Walmart also sells the tool for removal for 'bout $3. I bought a single CD player to replace the changer from Crutchfield and they supplied the tool as part of the package. My CD changer failed due to one of the black plastic trays that holds the CD. You just need a DIN tool for factory stereo remo…val. I know Best Buy sells them, also Crutchfield sells them. They should only be several dollars. Once you have them, you'll just put them into the those little squarish holes on the right and left side of the stereo. Since the tools are U-shaped, one point goes into each hole. Then, you should feel a little spring-resistance and when the points are as far as you can push without too much effort, you pull them outwards (towards the left and right) and then pull the stereo out. On the back of the stereo you'll find the wiring harness and antenna wire. Pull those, and you're all set. Also, don't forget to turn off your car and since power still goes into the stereo while the car is off, so take proper precautions to prevent shocking yourself or damaging the unit. instead of buying a tool, all I had to do was take my car to a local Ford dealer and they pulled it out right there for me ( Full Answer )
The front pads are similar to anyother disk brake system. Set the brake, jack up the front end. Remove the wheels. Now look for the two bolts on the back side of the brake caliper. 17mm I think. remove the top then the bottom. Have a bucket or crate to set the caliper on so you don't stretch the bra…ke hose. Use a Screwdriver to remove the old brake pads, remove the outboard pad first, then (I like) usind a large "C" clamp depress slowly the pistion to make room for the new pads. Remove the inboard pad. Look carefully at the little metal pad keepers. There will be new ones in the brake kit. Reverse assembly and bleed the brakes. ( Full Answer )

The 6 CD player in your 2000 Honda Passport jammed and now it won't eject the remaining 4 won't load and won't play any ideas on how to go about fixing it?
press the eject button and hold it until the CDs eject I had this problem with my 2001 Rodeo, it is the first sign of the CD changer taking a crap and breaking. Answer The first mentioned response worked for a while with me too. Eventually, I had to have the unit replaced. My CD changer was chang…ed twice. I advise you, unless your unit is still under warranty, not to get another Honda disk changer. The second time mine failed, I replaced with a non Honday stereo/CD player and all is fine.

Answer . \npress the "load" button. The CD player will ask you which slot? Use the number buttons to select a slot 1-6. It will move to that slot and open the door. Insert the CD, and then hit load again, and it will ask you which slot again. Repeat this process up to 6 CDs.
Your 2002 Nissan altima 6 CD changer is displaying err3 and won't play or eject how do you fix this error?
I Have the same unit in my 2001 Frontier, When that err3 showed i decided to open the unit myself and try to fix it. When i got it open the first thing i did is to give it a good looking over to see if there were any loose parts or disconnections. I found a small white plastic gear loose inside the …unit. it took me several minutes to locate where the gear went, but i was able to put back where it belonged(the gear was for the roller that feeds the disc in and out of the unit) at the top right front corner of the unit. If you decide to try it, becareful with all the sensitive parts. Unfortunately, after I put the gear back and got everything reinstalled, I heard the grinding noise again and received the err3 again. I removed and opened the unit again to see if the gear came off again. The answer is NO, it was right where it supposed to be. So This tells me that there is a mechanical problem. Which unfortunatley out of frustration i decided not try and figure out. I was able to eject all 6 of my disc, this took some time, alot of time. All I did Was remove the unit and on the back bottom left corner you can see a white gear about a 1/2" wide. You can remove most of the exterior plates for easy access, but i just used a small flat head screw driver and carefully turned the gear clockwise. Like i said this will take some time. Apparantly this is a major problem with these 6 disc in dash players. Alpine and has a unit that will work with these systems, even with the steering wheel controls. This is the route i decided to take. i may not be able to get another 6 disk changer, but with the new alpine unit i will be able to hook up an iPod(Much more convienent. I will let ya'll know how it turns out. trigger32 ( Full Answer )

How can you reset the 6 CD changer in your 2003 Saturn Vue V6 it will not acknowledge or eject the CD's you have loaded in the changer?
Answer . \nYou can't take it and and get it fixed The cd's are jammed...Doers it give an error code?
Gotta love the standard 6 CD changer that can't change CDs. I too have a 2005 Focus. From what I gather, there are three solutions to this problem: 1. Pull the fuse out. Consult your manual for the proper fuse number to pull. I have a 2005 ST, on that model it is fuse #42. 2. Disconnect your p…ositive terminal cable on the car battery. Should reset the CD player, potentially clearing up the issue. Or not. 3. Remove the face cover on the CD player and pull the player out. This will allow you to actually see the problem physically. Sometimes the trays bump out of place. Also, it will allow you to replace the player with a better, non-Ford one. Hope this helps! ( Full Answer )
You will need a radio that controls the CD changer. If you order it through Crutchfield it will come with the adapter harness for the vehicle. This is a lot easier than trying to guess and splice the wiring. Then you just run the wiring to the place you want the changer to go. Doing it without the r…adio controller is harder because you will need a separate amp and some sort of input splitter so that you can hear it through the speakers. You also will have to have a way to control the volume. I used to install these years ago. I wont even do it without a radio changer controller anymore. It isn't the best looking install either. Hope this helps. Good luck. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nIt is probably a dealer thing. If you can find the actual maker of the unit then try going to there web site or calling them.

Why won't the CD player on a vw 1996 jetta work it won't go into CD mode its a 6 disk trunk changer and it won't eject the CD's but radio and tape player still work?
There is a good chance that it is a anti-theft model. If it is, you will need the code to use the system.
For starts, there are narrow trim pieces on each side of the radio that pop off. This reveals holes in which you can insert a DIN tool that can be purchased at Autozone for $5. Presumably, you insert the tool to release clips and pull out the radio. Very tricky. Good luck.
Answer . It is stored in the central console that is between the front seats.
Your 6 disc CD player in your 2001 ford explorer doesn't work it won't load eject or play it just keeps saying CD error?
my exployer has a cd player in the dash plus a 6disk cd player in the consele how do i get it to work
There are companies that can get your CDs out of the Bose player and repair the unit for around $225 plus the cost for shipping. You can find the companies on eBay and other locations on the internet. You will have to remove the unit and send it in for repair. You can also find used units from junky…ards for around $350. I have heard new ones at the dealer can get upto $1200 or more. The 2001 QX4s were nortorious for this CD problem. That is why when you see a used 2001 QX4 today, chances are you will see an aftermarket $99 Kenwood or Pioneer, etc. single CD player. Or, the existing Bose unit in the truck does not work properly. It is OK to go the aftermarket route but the radio controls on your steering wheel will not work. Plus if you have the Infiniti installed DVD entertainment center, it will not play through the speakers unless you have the Bose system. Good luck. ( Full Answer )
Yes there is one in mine it's a 2000, Mach Premium sound system with a sub amp and speaker in the back passenger side.
Sounds like the disc mechanism is jammed... See "Related Questions" below for detailed instructions on clearing the jam
Check owner's manual. . There is no CD changer fuse it gets power from the radio if the radio is on, there is some other problem with the CD changer.
A compact disc player could read no disc because there is no discin the player. It could also read no disc because the disc in notcompatible or readable.
You may have to take it apart and see why is getting stuck.. It may be need of some lube.
Remove the decorative cover from your 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe six CDchanger. Remove the CD changer retaining screws. Remove the wiringharness from the back of the CD changer.
Most likely short for Error-04 maybe this means it can't read your CD in slot 4, or any number of other things, depending on what the machine is doing.
One way to get a disc unstuck from a 6 disc changer is to try tohit eject while the car is off. This sometimes forces the disc toeject.
Sometimes CD players will reject burned CDs. Also, most of themwill eject CDs that are dirty or have scratches on them. Car CDplayers will also act up if there is a short in the wiring.

Most likely it is built into the dash where your stereo controls are. If not Go the the trunk and remove the carpet on the sidewall on the drivers side that is where the actual stereo is.
\nIts definitely not a simple task. Really the only thing from the CD changer you could use is the Transport system and the buttons on the front. \n. \nFirst, the laser from a CD player is of higher wavelength than that of a DVD player. This leads to higher resolution and the ability to read sma…ller pits on the surface of the discs.\n. \nSecond most DVDs (used for video) are dual layer which the CD player is not equipped to handle.\n. \nThird, the DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) of the CD is not set up to handle the data from a DVD only from a CD.\n. \nWhile it could be done - you could take the 300 CD changer mechanism and couple it to a DVD player (ie you would need to canabalise both a CD player and a DVD player) it would not be easy.

Does a 2004 ford expedition Eddie Bauer have a automatic transmission dipstick and if it doesn't is the fluid good for the life of the transmission?
NO it is not good for life. it needs to be changed every 2 to 3 years unless used for heavy towing. Then it needs to be changed at least once a year! This should show in your manual or if you do not have one, look it up on the internet it is available.
You need to learn how to ask an intelligent question, we have no clue why it wont enguage. Is it running? Did you take the transfer case out?

How do you remove a stuck CD from a Lexus is 300. the 6 disc changer says its not their but i know its in their...?
This is an involved procedure, but it's not rocket science. All it takes is two screw drivers (flat and Philips) and some patience. Any surface you don't want scratched needs to be covered by masking tape or a rag (if it's a horizontal surface). READ THE ENTIRE PROCEDURE FIRST. Then take your time… and get started! If you feel comfortable with a little DIY, then it's pretty simple. First take some masking tape and cover the trim around the Head Unit stack, from the traction control switches all the way up to the vents and tray. This stuff scratches easy and the tape will protect it. Cover the center console around under the head unit with some paper or a rag to protect it from scratches. Next, get a flat headed screw driver and pop off the felt liner of the tray (unless you happen to have a nav unit, then you're on your own). This will expose some Philips screws which you can remove and then remove the tray. Now the stack is exposed, you can remove the vents and then the controls. Be sure to label where the connectors go! Just use some masking tape. After the vents and controls have been removed, you will have to remove the traction control/seat heater buttons to expose the lower screws of the head unit. To remove the buttons/holder, gently pull the holder toward you. It should just snap out. You will have to remove the cables from the buttons, BE SURE TO LABEL WHERE THESE CABLES GO! Now you've got just the head unit left. Remove the lower screws that you just exposed. The head unit and bracket are essentially "hanging" from the upper bracket on two posts. Pull the head unit upward then toward you. Keep in mind you won't get far because of all the cables. With the head unit unseated from it's attachment points, you can gently remove the connectors from the back. AGAIN, LABEL WHERE THE CABLES GO. In my experience, the antenna cable is the most difficult to remove and replace. It may also make this easier if you cut the electrical tape that holds the antenna cable to one of the other cables first (be sure to cut the tape and not the cables!). Now you have the head unit unplugged and removed. The CD stacker is exposed from the back now. The CD stacker is simply some very thin plastic edge holders where the CDs stacked on top of two posts held in by a retention plate and a spring. In theory, simply remove the retention plate, remove the holders, remove the CDs and replace it all. However, The spring which is connected to the retention plate goes all the way under the assembly and is a %$#$% to replace if you are not careful. First, make sure to put some masking tape on both ends of the spring before remove it from the retention plate. This will keep the spring from coming out and shooting across the room! Now that you have the spring secured, remove both ends from the retention plate and then remove the retention plate. Now you should be able to remove all the holders and remove the CDs. Now, put all the holder back on the two posts, replace the retention plate, then reconnect the spring to both ends of the retention plate. REMOVE the masking tape from the spring! This entire process will take you about 1-2 hours depending on how comfortable you feel and how hard the connectors are to remove. I've done this several times to my 2001 IS to fix CD jams, install an iPod connector, etc. It was tough the first time, but it got a lot easier subsequent times. I did not heed the masking tape warnings the first time and scratched the trim around the traction control area! Before putting everything completely back together, it's a good idea to plug the head unit back in and turn the power on to make sure everything is working. Best to test it while it's apart rather than discovering it after you put it back together. When putting the Head Unit stack back together, first connect the cables, then hang it back on the two posts followed by the lower screws. Then replace the traction control/seat heater switch connectors and slide the assembly back under the head unit. Replace the control assembly connectors, and then sit it back on top of the head unit. Replace the vent assembly, followed by the tray. Put the screws back in the tray and finally snap the felt liner back in place. Done! Now you are a trained/experienced Head Unit Technician! This will come in handy if it breaks and you have to replace it. Lexus wants $1500 + labor! ( Full Answer )
you might have to go to the hard drive, go to the CD & manually eject it. instead of just pressing the eject button.
Try unhooking your positive (red) battery treminal and leave off for about an hour, rehook it and see if that won't reset the computer and fix the problem. Let me know if it works, or not. Rob
GENTLY slide something thin such as a popsicle stick (clean of course) in the slot and move the CD from one side to the other until it comes out. I emphasize gently.

How to Remove a Stuck CD These suggestions have been gathered from the Forums posts here. Hopefully one of them will work to free your stuck compact disc. Try an Advanced Search for "stuck CD" in the Forums for more suggestions if none of these help. Here are some techniques to try when your CD get…s stuck in your car CD player. And yes, some idiot did try to stick a CD in a cup holder in the image (just for illustration purposes only, lol). Precautions : These tricks are focused mainly on single disc CD players but they may work on your multi-disk changer. Usual disclaimers - attempting repairs can ruin your player. If your car is under warranty, take it to the dealer. If you have any qualms about trying any of these techniques, let a dealer or audio shop tackle the project instead. Tips and Tricks : â Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and, with no key in the ignition, pull the fuse out for a minute (or more - I've seen TSBs that say leave the fuse out for 10 minutes), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio presets and other settings. Make sure you have any codes for your radio that may be required since disconnecting the battery cables can cause the radio to quit working too. This fuse trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. Check your owner's manual - you may have more than one fuse that controls the CD and/or the radio and you may need to remove all the related fuses. (There's a "risky" variation of this tip described in the Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems section of the guide for attempting to fix a CD changer) â Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again). â Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button. â If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack. â some players, especially aftermarket ones, use a CD cartridge or magazine. Tapping on the cartridge while pressing the eject button sometimes ejects stuck discs. Car Space member Alwaysfords2 has been able to remove stuck CD magazines by using a piece of shim stock or a hack saw blade and going alongside one of the long sides of the magazine to hit the release. You can rock the magazine a little bit in the slot to see the mechanism and it should be easy to release - sort of like using the little pin hole on a CD drive, the magazine pops up as soon as it is freed. â Remove the face place from your player (be gentle; something like a butter knife often works without damaging the bezel or breaking tabs). Then look for a tiny, usually recessed little button that you can press. You may need that unbent paperclip to reach the button. â Find a coaster in your junk drawer - by coaster, I mean an old CD that doesn't work. Or use a blank one if that's all you have. Insert the coaster about an inch into the slot (yes, on top of the stuck CD). Then turn the ignition on and hold the eject button and wiggle the CD around. Don't be ham fisted - you're just trying to give the player some traction to help it eject the stuck one. If this fails, then try slipping the edge of the coaster (or something even thinner) under the stuck CD and pry it up while pressing the eject button. Again, be gentle - you don't want to ruin the player when a pro may be able to remove the unit and free the disc for $20 or so. â Find a Popsicle stick or something thin but rigid and tear off a few inches of Scotch Tape from that roll you keep in your junk drawer (next to all those ruined CDs you intend to make Christmas ornaments out of some day). Put the tape on the top of the stuck CD using the thin stick to help attach the tape firmly to the disk. Like the hint above, the idea is to lift the CD enough to enable the player to eject it. â At least one Car Space member had success releasing a stuck CD by, ahem, banging on top of the dashboard! â Foreign objects stuck into the player, or CDs that miss the slot entirely yet wind up inside the unit usually require pulling the CD player to remove the disc. â if all else fails and the repair is expensive, you may want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit. Multiple (6-disk, etc.) Systems : â on some brands, pressing the load and eject button at the same time will cycle the changer and eject a stuck disk. If your changer uses magazines to hold the CDs, be sure to try the shim trick above. â Risky variation of the fuse tip that fixed a CD changer. Rbronosky in the Axiom 6-CD Changer discussion on Car Space figured out which fuse controlled the CD changer. When pulling the fuse didn't reset the changer, he turned the ignition on just enough to run the radio. While the radio was on (and against his better judgment), he pulled the fuse and then replaced it. This operation caused a huge blue spark! But his changer immediately started shuffling, the eject button released the stuck CDs and the CD player worked like new. Because of the risk of fire and damage to other electrical components, this tip cannot be recommended. But if you like living dangerously.... Prevention : â A CD cleaning kit may be helpful in cleaning the CD laser lens and the demagnetizing the CD head. Tony78 reports that this can fix CD players or changers that are showing an ERROR or similar message. â don't use homemade labels on any disks, home burnt or otherwise. They may be too thick for your player or the label may peel off inside the player, especially when the player or car interior gets hot and softens the adhesive. Use a pen made for marking on CDs instead. â be careful with any CDs borrowed from your library too - they may have a bar code taped to the surface and be too thick for your player. â don't use "scratch protectors" on your CDs. â Try to teach your kids not to cram nickels in the CD slot. :-) â attempting to use an unformatted-unfinalized and/or incompatible CD disk in a CD changer can cause errors on the changer display and cause the changer to refuse to eject disks.

You must remove the strip across the dash to remove the side panel to access the CD changer...if you have used paper label CD's you may have glue ick all over your rollers...if it continues to run when you use the radio it will strip the gears of the changer and it's all over.
