How to Eject a CD in a Ford Expedition When Stuck

by Matthew Fortuna

The Ford Expedition features a standard CD player that is popular for its radio and disc playing capabilities. While the system offers a number of specialized features, it is not without its faults and is prone to losing CDs if they get stuck in the player. You can remove your CDs when they get stuck in just a few seconds with a number of simple tweaks. These can be done without harming the disc or the player.

Turn the key in the Expedition's ignition to the "Acc" position and press and hold the "Eject" button on the CD player for up to three minutes to try to force the disc out.

Press the "Power" button as you press the "Eject" button for a couple of minutes to try to force the disc out as the system powers on and off.

Press the "Reset" button on the face of the player to try to reset the system and get the disc out as the system reconfigures itself. This button is a small black indentation on the face of the player that must be pressed with a pen or a paperclip.

Insert the tip of a blank disc into the player and attempt to lodge it into the player underneath the stuck disc. Try to push the stuck CD up into the ejecting track to remove it from the player.
