My wife's CD player quit working properly in her Explorer so being the "man" I was commissioned to rewire it. My initial repair attempt involved a table knife which, of course, did not work. I then utilized my "phone a friend" and got an incorrect answer. I pushed all of the buttons in all possible combinations, all possible pressure combinations and repetitions. It was at this point I decided to remove the radio. As I saw no easy coat hanger or paper clip holes, I checked with Google. After moving through several sites that answered anything but what I needed, I came to your site. Very good information on how to remove a radio which I was able to perform flawlessly. It was at this point that I wondered what I would do with the radio now that I have it out. My mind went into overdrive and directed me to go back to your site and check your radio repair advice. Again, excellent instruction!! I quickly put the instructions to use and disconnected the battery for a couple of minutes and, presto, problem solved except for explaining to my wife why I had taken her dash apart and radio out to disconnect the battery. I make up some marginally believable story that she bought and she thanked me for giving her music for her trip this weekend.
I appreciate your site and the accurate information provided at no cost. You have made every attempt to prevent people like me from taking the dash apart but I must confess, sometimes you can't cure ignorance!
