problem #1

Apr 302017

Escape SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,300 miles

The car only has 64, 000 miles. The CD player has rarely been used, and now it is not working. The problem first began when I started hearing a buzzing noise from the CD player after starting the car. The buzzing noise occurs about 3 to 4 times after the car is started and then stops. I didn't think anything of it. Today, I attempted to insert a CD into the CD slot, but the CD feeder would not feed the disk into the slot. The disk would just move further into the slot without the feeder activiating. I did not want to push the disk in too far, for fear it would become damaged. I guess this means another trip to the dealer. I will update this complaint asap.

Update from Jun 14, 2019: At 73,xxx miles the car needed a new battery. The old battery was original from 2012. When the new battery was installed, I no longer heard the buzzing from the CD player at startup. I decided to try the CD player and to my surprise it worked again! The old battery must have been bad for at least 2-3 years, but still always started the car up strangely enough. My dealership always tested the battery as “good” so I saw no reason as to why it would be cause the CD player to malfunction. When I took the car to another shop, after the car wouldn’t start, they said the battery had a bad cell in it and needed replacement. Who knows if the cell went bad suddenly or if it had been bad since the CD player started to act funny?? The good thing is that it works again!!!
