Re: 2004 Mach 6 disk changer
I currently have that same problem with my mach 460 6 disk. The radio portion works fine, but when you start the car up, the cd message reads "cd error". My guess in your case would be a stuck cd or if there's no cd, the stage selector within the unit hung up or something to that degree.
I tried the butter knife technique and was unsuccessful. Hell, I tore the whole unit out and took it apart...thought I fixed the problem with the cd stages, put it back together (which was a real *****) and it still didn't work.
I checked with my Ford dealership and they will do a swap plus ~$315.
I'm too cheap for that and usually use my Ipod, so I haven't bothered with it.
I'd try the butterknife technique and see if that works, hopefully it will free up whatever is stuck.
If that doesn't work, your next best bet is to either remove the unit or swap it completely with a refurbished/new one. It's unfortunate, but that's the price of having an in dash cd changer...issues like this happen to a lot of mach 460/1000 owners.
