CD Player 03 Ford Truck wont play. "Bad Disk"

7 posts in this topic

My cd player recently stopped working. At first it would not play burned cd's now it wont play anything.

I put a disk in and it looks at it for a minute then kicks it out with a screen message of "Bad Disk"

I have sprayed it out with compressed air. Bought a decent cd cleaner but even putting the cleaner in it says bad disk.

I noted the direction I had the cd in when inserted it and when it ejects with "bad disk" message the disk is in a different position leading me to believe it is spinng.

Any suggestion?

Not worth taking in to get fixed cuz you can buy a new one at best buy or circuit city for $100 plus a mounting kit for about 20 and a wire harness for 20 and you get free install. just my .02 Good luck J.P.

Is it a Dixie Chicks CD? Have you tried some Skynard or AC/DC?

I waould say its broke. The cheapest alternative would be to replace with aftermarket as mentioned above. But why stop at a new Radio? A couple of amps some 12" subs, new mids and tweeters, and might as well update those 6"rounds in the door! As long as that is done might as well get your self a custom interior, 27 monitors, custom paint, 24" color matched wheels with spinners, and a strut grill! grin.gif

Seriously though, give the guys at dealer automitive services a call (DAS). I think they are located in Roseville. If your interested in repairing or finding out if it can be fixed.

I would just replace it with a newer type. I have one that plays MP3s recorded on CD, one disk has over 160 songs, I can sing from my house to Kansas City and back..... grin.gif

If it's a cheaper model stock radio, watch ebay. There's always people on there dumping their stock radios after they buy an aftermarket one, which I don't understand.

Why wouldn't you keep the stock radio and put back in when you sell the vehicle??

Anyways, sometimes you can pick up a stock one for $20-30, especially the lower end stock radios.

Here's a link to "Ford cd radio" on Ebay..

[Please read forum policy before posting again, Thank you]

Also, I had a 1999 F-350, so I'm not sure if your radio is still the same or not. It had a safety deal on it, where there's 2 little holes on each side of the radio, 2 on the left, 2 on the right.

Basically Ford sells a little tool that you put in there so it'll pop the pins so you can pull the radio out. The trick is, just use a wire coat hanger, where you bend 2 pieces of wire in a "U" and can put in the holes, then you can slide your radio out, IF you're in that same situation.

Actually, most oem cd players on ebay go pretty high. I upgraded my oem cd player in my truck with an aftermarket deck and sold the oem deck on ebay. If I remember right I got like $120 for it. I would just upgrade to aftermarket.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Not on mine either!!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
