Boot release - dashboard button & CD 4500 Error Code 83

09 December 2008 - 01:47 PM

I bought a 2005 1.4 TDCi in September.

Generally fine but two problems need attention.

I was wondering if any member has had similar experiences and can provide valuable knowledge of the likely cause and most importantly COST of repair

That is, whether I would have to go to a Ford dealer or can go elsewhere to save dosh in these credit crunched times.

1. The boot release button on the dashboard doesn't work. Remote and key unlock are fine.

2. RDS E.O.N. 4500 CD Error Code 83 - relates to CD ejection - it doesn't. No sound of the mechanism working at all. Plays fine.
This problem has 's written all over it. I believe these units are a 100% nightmare to remove. Might this be an eBay replacement?

Priority would be the 4500 situation

Any observations are very welcome and gratefully acknowledged in advance

Thanks very much for reading this.
