Re: My CD player is on crack! Please help!
Have a 2002 escape with a 6-cd changer. It went awol after spitting out (barely) a cd, perhaps I freaked it out by pulling the CD ahead of it being fully out, but it appeared to be hesitating. Anyway, from then on it showed the dreaded "CD ERROR" and wouldn't reset. Rather than yanking the whole radio out so I could work on it, with the 4-nails-in-the-little-ports-to-release trick, I took off the negative terminal from the car battery, waited a few moments, then reattached. That did it, the player reset. The problem began after listening to a full CD. Wife says it sometimes had freaked in the past but calmed down by itself later. That would indicate perhaps it had gotten too hot and then cooled down. But this last time it needed the battery terminal to reset.
