So I just tried putting a cd into the in-dash 6 cd player/head unit (stocker) for the first time = FAIL. ('02 GT)

Won't eject any cds - just says CD ERROR across it.
Can't select a CD (1-6),,,or do anything with a CD basically. Radio works fine,,all other controls work.

Just wondering if there's ANY fix to this (rebootsky / reset of some type)?

Thanks,

Like said above, you could hit it, but that stopped working for me. I also have this problem and also have an 02' GT. I removed the whole unit and took the face off and un-jammed the discs. I left the screws that hold the face on so if it does it again I can remove the trim bezels and the face without completely pulling the unit out anymore.

Is there an actual fix? Not really. Its poor ford engineering. Go get a double den touchscreen unit and you'll be happier. I don't really see a point in trying to fix it though. Mine always does it after un-jamming it. It will work a while then quit again. :dunno

Mine did that while I was driving. I pulled over shut the car off, and tried and it worked. You could try disconecting the battery.

^ forgot to mention that. at random times when the unit receives power( when starting the car) the unit will try to read/ load the discs. sometimes it will un-jam and sometimes it doesn't. But its not a power issue so the battery thing really wouldn't help anymore than me un-plugging mine.

^ Agreed. If the radio portion of it didn't work either I prolly would have taken it out and experimented on the disc changer to maybe make it work without fail, but since it's a little drive to school I'd miss my morning tunes if I broke it. :lol

The 460 unit sucks ass. Once it gives you any sort of error, or difficulty it'll just give you more problems from then on out. My advice to you; give it the finger, rip it out, and put a nice aftermarket one in.


Trust me.

BTW-
I found that my fails if I hit the EJECT button, then try to move to a different disc before it completley ejects.
You'd think I'd learn the first time to be patient..

OM NOM NOM is right...lol

Thanks for all the responses guys. I gotta feeling I have cd player with 6 cds of the previous owner :)

I have not completely disconnected pwr from the battery,,,I'll try that next. I'll give it a good *whack* too.

...but ya,,might be pulling it off and slap'n in something else.

...ticks me off I didn't notice that when I bought it,,I would have had the dealer fix it too.

I had a cd from the previous owner. They had awful taste in music too. absolutely the WEIRDEST combo of music on one cd.

I'm interested in replacing it with something other then stock. I don't want it to happen again. Once replaced, I'll be happy to donate it to someone if they're interested.

Right now I have blow some money on new rotors, and getting the trans./diff serviced.

what do you want for it? shipped to 78633, TX. our 6 disk in our 03 f350 stopped working. after 6 months of love taps on the dash.
