You are in the Ford Escape
What is this discussion about?
#61 of 103 Ford escape CD changer problem.

If you are getting the CD Error message, take out the radio and remove the faceplate. There is a wire in there that may have gotten lodged up in there that will stop the cd loader from opening. We moved this wire out of the way and tried again and it worked immediately. Hope this helps!
#62 of 103 radio doesn't pickup

I have a 06 escape, radio will not pick up stations over 10-15 miles. Have installed a new antenna and coax, also put a ground wire on coax. Still doesn't work, have taken radio out of my 03 f-150 and put in escape and still doesnt work, put radio out of escape in to truck and it works fine, both radios work equal in truck, but not in escape.

My radio stopped working in my 2003 escape. For awhile it would go off then after I let it sit for awhile it would come back on. Then one day it shut off and came back on by itself and it played for months. Now it will quit after 5 minutes in the car and now it's dead. I can load and unload cds and push to see the time put that's it. I bought another factory radio and the same thing, nothing. I have power to the radio but I am lost from here. any body got any ideas?

There is a $10 tool you can buy from V.I.P. called OEM Radio Removal Tool, go figure, huh? Well, I have an 02 escape as well, with the same problem. It wouldn't eject cds or play them. It would always say cd error. My son was able to get 2 cds out and took radio apart. When he put it back in everything works except the cd player, it still is doing the same thing.

#67 of 103 2008 escape radio problem
Aug 04, 2010 (5:20 pm)
on colder days none of the radio controls work on the radio but the controls on the steering wheel work. Also the lights on the radio don't come on then it will come on once the radio seems to warm up. This radio has the six cd player and the satelite radio as well as am/fm
#70 of 103 2001 Escape Radio dead after new battery
Aug 11, 2010 (8:29 am)
The vehicle was left for 3 months with a dead battery. After replacing the battery, everything but the radio works. It gets no power at all. Fuses have been checked and all are fine.
Went to the dealership and they said there is no reset for Ford radios.
Does anyone know how to get the radio back functioning without replacing the whole unit?
A million thanks in advance!
