Any one else hav problems with thier 2008 Ford Focus CD player when inserting a CD it says focus Error. It will accept a cd every once and a while, but it takes many inserts. Any ideas? I do have a sub and amp installed but I did get it professionally installed to hopefully eliminate my own error.

Any one got ideas?

Both..

Welll I thought that it might be the CD's that I burned, but I also have bought new CD's off the shelf put them in and still got the same error.

I don't have the changer either, just the single disc player. I use the "load" button before I load a CD and haven't had any issues.

100% of my CDs are burned. I buy everything off itunes and burn discs for use in players.

I have one cd specifically that says "Focus error" every time I put it in... well... I lied.... I got it to play ONCE. Other than that, every other time has been Focus Error.... I finlaly just labeled the cd that and havent bothered with it since. I haven't had any other cd give me that error either so i don't know.

Was the cd you're trying an MP3 CD? Mine was.

you never know abt warranties, it almost sounds like there is something inside of ur cd player. maybe one of your cd's had an excessive amount of dust. there may also have been a small foreign object on one of your disks. i dont know if adding a sub and amp would have voided your warranty. if there are problems with your cd player not being able to read disks, there is no coralation between the cd player and a sub. what i would do is call up and talk to the dealership and ask them if adding a sub and amp would void your warranty, then if it does have it removed, its not hard at all, then take it in, and after its fixed, hook it back up ;)
