Battery died and CD player stopped working. I have the solution! You pull up on the bottom of the radio shroud. Unscrew the top controls where the hazard lights are. Then with a 7mm socket remove the bolts holding the radio unit in place. Disconnect the wire harnesses. Unscrew the lid of the radio unit. Peer down and you'll find a metal rod tilted, this rod is jammed with a CD under it and is unable to move because the CD is pulled out the rod cannot move down. Use an object like a small screwdriver and force the CD back. Plug the wire harnesses back in to test it out. I'd suggest you tilt it upward while it is resting on the shifter. You should be able to remove the CD's, try this several times. When you are satisfied put the lid back on the radio unit and reinstall. I hope this helps a lot of people.

My battery died and after it was jumped my cd player stopped working. I had the battery replaced with a new one and the cd player never restored. The radio and MP3 player work fine. I have cds that are stuck in the 6-disc changer and unable to get them out. Any suggestions?

we had to replace our battery and ever since then the cd player has stopped working. we have cds in there and it makes a horrible noise when the car is turned on and even throughout the drive sometimes. We don't turn on the cd player we alaways have the radio on, but it makes the noise regardless.

Load Error -- CD player won't eject, load, play or do anything, or "give me back" the 5CDs that are stuck in player. Ford Dealer says whole unit needs replaced at cost of $700, incl tax, labor -- $425 for stereo unit. Very disappointed since my parents bought this car new and I've only had and used the CD player for past year. CD player was never used before. I"m naturally not very happy.

I had a jump start. After this I heard funny chirrping noises and sounds like the cd player nwas looking for a cd. It said load error when I pressed the buttons for cd. Went to Auto Zone for a diagnostic readout check. It said p605 which indicated fault with internal control module. This is the only problem except the engine light id now staying on more. It has not been fixed.

CD player stopped playing. Unsure why

Had rear brakes and rotors done twice in less than 3 months. Working on 3rd repair. Can't afford to keep fixing the same problem over and over again.. Thinking about trading this car in. Think ford should be held accountable for this problem.

Cd stuck in unit. Followed your instructions took off face guard and unscrewed unit from brackets, was able to see the cd and pulled it out with tweezers. Cd still does not light up & I am afraid to see if it works but the radio still works great.

Cannot insert a CD into the player. No error messages, just does not work. I replaced the battery awhile back but did not check the CD player at the time.

Whenever my car is turned on (unlocking doors from key fob, running, etc...) my CD player sounds as if it's trying to cycle through the discs. At about the time I noticed what was going on, my service light popped on. Everything else seems to be working well.
