**** Update as of *11:09pm* = After getting the second spring back on i notice the first one that was the problem was stretched so I kept Shortening it and redoing the loop till it was now the right length i know the spring tension has changed hope it isnt enough to effect it.... going back outside to see if CD 4-6 works now ****



**** Update as of *10:40pm*= M****** F**** S*** BULLS***...... now both springs fell off.....




**** Update as of *10:30pm*= Looks like a spring got on the wrong side of this bar.. when it got off track trying to get it aligned now.. its a springy little bastart!! ****



***** Update as of *10:20pm*= so I figured out that slot 1 was agar and was off track... I have everything working now but Slots 4-6 say CD error... and idea's? its like the cd wont go in the slot.... ****












________________________________________








Ok went and got a 6 CD ford radio like so off craigslist.. like so:







plugged it in and all it does is keeps cycling the CD player the radio will work..

you can not load a cd. it constantly keeps cycling ( NO ERROR CODES!!!)

any idea's?

prob just got a nice new paper weight eh?
