Re: cd/tape player light displayed is blank
My 1999 Explorer Sport has this exact same problem. The stereo in it
came from a 2000 Explorer EB and had a CD player in it, my original one
was AM/FM/tape only. I removed it (with 4 skinny screw drivers) and
noticed that there is a place where the circuit board mounts to the
front display area. In my case I reseated this board to where it
mounts and the display came back on. Unfortunately it went back off a
week later and I haven't repeated the process yet. I would suggest
trying this before purchasing replacement parts. Maybe you can get it
to stay in place and work. Next time I do mine again I will be
cleanining the contacts in there and seeing if there is a way I can get
it seated better.
If I remember right, this connector is right behind the area where the
5 bottom buttons are, and it might be repeated pressing of these
buttons that causes it to become loose.
