Default CD Stuck in the CD Player

Hey all, I have the CD/MP3 Standard Factory stereo that came in my model Ranger. However, when I bought it the kid before me left his crappy T.I. CD i there and now it will NOT come out. I have pressed every button and every combination of them and it will NOT move.

What to do?

try this- turn off the key to the truck and wait a few seconds (10) then, insert the key, turn it towards you (so the cd player will work) THEN push the eject button.
This is how I had to eject a cd when it was stuck in my player. I think the computer got confused when I kept randomly pushing buttons.

Ooo, you have an issue. You may end up having to take the radio apart to gain access to it.

Oh, and that must have been in there awhile. Nobody listens to T.I. anymore.lol.

When mine did that I would eject it with the truck off and it worked sometimes...if its anything like my stock 2000 I HAD to have a CD in there to play or it would cut out of the radio and search for a CD it ONLY did this after a CD got stuck and that was like 4 years a go. If you have the cash, I would get an aftermarket head unit.

I've always been successful with a knife or other narrow poking object to poke the CD back into alignment. One other time i had to remove the unit from the truck and give it a beating. Then it came right out. Seriously.

Default Re: CD Stuck in the CD Player

I had this happen to my CD player - twice. Once with a brand new CD.
This is what I did.
First, remove the radio using the U-shaped tool. (you can pick these up at any parts store for $10 or less)
You poke it in until it clicks and then after a few tries the CD player slides right out. Disconnect the antenna and the power/speaker connector and take the unit to your bench.
There are four (IIRC) philips bolts that hold on the face plate. Remove them. The face plate will come loose on the bottom (or top, ICRC) and the other side is sorta clipped on. Gently work the faceplate off and you will be able to remove the disk with your fingers. Installation is the reverse.
First time it took me about twenty minutes, now I can do it in five.
even though there are no exposed hot wires, you may want to play it safe and disconnect the negative cable from your battery. I didn't bother.
Good luck, take your time and you shouldn't have any problems.
Jim

Awesome butler. I will do that tonight. To get to radio do I need to remove the trim piece around the whole set up?
