Having problems with your 2003 Ford Expedition ?

Error message on my ford radio

\015 My ford radio constantly displays a "err" message - I have the unlock code but can't enter it - apparently each time a wrong code has been entered a timed lockout kicks in - for each subsequent wrong code the entry lock out time doubles I have waited a month for a chance to enter the code - diconnected the battery - pulled the fuse to the radio - no result - any clues\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Yes - there is a solution here.

\015\012The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio. Any interruption causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.
\015\012
\015\012If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!
\015\012
\015\012Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!
\015\012
\015\012Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature - not just Ford.

The CD player and the CD changer don't work in my 2001 A6. I get the message CD ERR 1. Can you tell me what the error message means? I bought the car used, and never got any manuals.

I disconnected the battery on my 2008 jeep liberty sport to install a radio and when I reconnected it I got an "error" message on the odometer that won't go away. I did install a pac to adapt for aftermarket radio and I removed it to see if that caused the problem and it didn't go away and I even reinstalled the original radio and the error display stayed.

The CD player for my factory Bose stereo system suddenly does not work anymore. Every disc that I put in it gives me an "ERR" message. It happened two days ago while I was playing a brand new CD. I got a call and turned of the system. When I turned it back on, it didn't play. I took the CD out and put it back in and got the error message. Its not the humidity and its not the heat that's the problem. Can someone help me? The radio works perfectly.
