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.

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.

        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
