      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Focus Estate 1.8 zetec 2002
  1. I have a Focus Estate with Ford 6006e six cd changer. it won't play CDs. Keeps coming up with error code E4. No-one seems to know how to fix it. Everyone just guesses. I have tried various things including removal / dismantling the unit and cleaning the laser (cotton bud, distilled water and other mild cleaners etc.) but no luck. Otherwise the unit works fine ..... insert / eject CDs and radio all working OK. Anyone know exactly what this error code means and how to fix it? Thanks for any/all suggestions.

  3. RDS 6006 problem err 3

    Hi Very late on this. Just joined. I think this relates to the cogs inside the unit wearing out and not turning/meshing correctly. You maybe get crunching or grinding sounds. Try removing the unit completely and taking the top cover off (neither are difficult if I can do it!), reinserting the two sets of cables at the rear and look if you can see what's actually physically happening when you try to eject/play. You may be able to "nudge" or encourage the unit to function so at least you can get your disks out. What you do after that I don't know. See if you can find the cogs that are failing. Can they be replaced? I don't know but I would doubt it, knowing Ford. Good luck. OJ
