6 disc cd changer

Ok I have a 2001 mustang gt and it has a 6 disc changer. I feel really dumb asking this but. How do you load cds into it? I can't get it to take a cd. And the front flap is pretty much stuck shut. Do I hit load and put the cd in or like is there a combination to get it to take a cd? Anything will be helpful

Re: 6 disc cd changer

First of all...don't feel dumb at all...when I first bought my stang I asked the salesman how to load cd's in it.

If the Mach system is operating correctly, you should be able to press "load", then select which slot you want to load, then the flap will open and you insert the disc. The same applies when ejecting discs.

Now, the Mach 460/1000's with the in dash 6 disc changers are known to jam up and eat your discs after time. Mine has done it to me, actually over a year ago and I gave up. I use an Ipod player these days anyways, so the jammed unit doesn't bother me.

Unfortunately it is a p.i.t.a. to get the changer working properly if it is jammed. You can try prying the loading door open and see if a disc is stuck inside...if that's the case you'll have to gently work the disc into place and see if it will eject or if you can pull it out.

If there are no discs in the changer, than the the unit is probably worn out. You can get a remanufactured one from Ford for ~$315, they will want your old unit as a core.

Or you can try and find a used player from someone or from a junk yard. Only issue there is that you could be buying a player in the same condition.

Disc changers, takes me right back to junior high and high school. I've been using an iPhone and iPod for so long now that I have no clue how to use one anymore!!!

I've thought about retrofitting one of those Mach systems for my fox. Ive got the optional 7 band equalizer for those years but all they came with was tape players. Kinda stuck lol

Well mines broken so ill probably just put a touch screen double dim in. Sucks though because I kinda liked that stereo. Thanks for your help though. And the unit itsself is nice but its unrelible. I would just put a nice clean aftermarket stereo in you fox body

Re: 6 disc cd changer

yeah but I hate the "holes" in the dash that come from it, I'll probably put a touch screen as well.

I have the mach 1000 and mine would not play cds or eject them. I took it an took it apart just to see if it had any broken parts. I didn't see any got my cds out put it back together installed it and it has been jam free for a couple of months.
