CD Player Skips / Bad Disk Errors

Post by scotty17 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 7:50 am

2005 Freestyle SEL

My six disc player randomly skips and sometimes displays " Bad Disk" message. The
CDs are home made and some are original cd's have some issues. I have been doing
research and found that this is a common problem on Ford Freestyle CD players.

Is there a fix for this and is it happening on ALL Ford Freestyle's, sounds to me like a
Ford Defect. I was wondering if anyone has found a fix. I was thinking about swapping the player out with another radio from another Freestyle I'm just concerned that I will have the same issue.

Also thinking about replacing the CD player with a after market unit the only thing is
I want to keep the Six disc function and also don't want to loose the steering wheel control functions.

Can someone recommend a good direct replacement model.

Thanks !
