Default Help!

My dad has a 2008 f150 fx4 it has the 6 disc CD's player and everytime you put a CD in it, It spits it back out and says C.d. error, There not burnt CD's, there brand new CD's. I heard that there's a shipping mode and that, it will spit them out like that if its in "shipping mode". But it worked fine for the first 8 months he had it. any advice since having ford do warranty work is like pulling teeth. Thanks a lot

If you think it is in shipping mode take it off shipping mode. If that does not work, best bet would be to have Ford check it out. My Dad had his Focus in for a new stereo 4 or 5 times under warranty and was not hassled about it.

I didnt know if there was a such thing as shipping mode. I figured someone on here knew how to correct that or something, but ford is giving my dad a hell of a time about warranty work, his truck was smoking a little bit and they said that every ford smokes a little, there just being ass holes but thanks man

yeah the 6 disc players have all kinds of problems. Mine in the ranger took a dump about a year and a half ago.

Best bet, bug ford and make them replace it

There are directions on top of the radio when you pull it out. At least on the Ranger there are.

I found this on how to put it in shipping mode:
Quote:
First, put the unit into shipping mode by
turning the radio on, press and hold the "SCAN" button and preset 1
until the display reads "PLEASE WAIT".... this should last for about two
seconds after which the display should read "IN SHIPPING MODE" for
three seconds.
Not sure if it is the same to take it off shipping mode though.

Where was the smoke coming from??

Something not everyone may know.....

If you have a factory Ford warranty, you can take it to any dealership you want for service. It does not have to be the dealership you bought it from.

If they are jerks in the service department at this particular dealership, go to another one.

I've even gone back to the same service department on a different day, talked to someone else, and had everything resolved.
