  • Rew - FF

    Was sitting in my 02 Bird this AM and was looking at the layout of the radio buttons and saw a button labeled "Rew FF". I know what these stand for on a cassette tape player but have no idea what they are for on my CD player. Anyone else ever notice this on their Bird's radio button layout?

    Rewind
    The rewind control works in CD
    modes.
    Press and hold the REW control
    until the desired selection is reached. If the beginning of the disc is
    reached, the CD will begin play at the first track. Release the control to
    disengage rewind mode.
    When in rewind mode, your audio system will automatically lower the
    volume level of the playing media.

    Fast forward
    The fast forward control works in
    CD modes.
    Press and hold the FF control until
    the desired selection is reached. If the end of the disc is reached, the CD
    will return to the first track. Release the control to disengage fast
    forward mode.
    When in fast forward mode, your audio system will automatically lower
    the volume level of the playing media.







    There is a link to download an owners manual for your car. Based on some of the questions you ask I assume you don't have one.

      I've noticed it but never bothered to inquire what it had to do with the CD player.

          Thanks for the fast response. Guess I am not one that really knows anything about CD players. Know just enough to stick the disk in and listen LOL.

              That's a very interesting question you posed, Robert. Thumb drives and memory cards, look different, but are the same thing, solid state memory. What we will do is what we are now doing, adapt. It's a lot easier to carry a thumb drive than a bunch of floppies, or CD/DVD. A song is a song, no matter the format; if you want to go back to a certain place in the song, you will push the equivalent button, or tell it to do so. You can get a plug in (cigarette lighter) adapter that will permit you to pop in a memory card and bring a boatload of music on a memory drive, or have a bluetooth adapter and stream from your phone. You'll still enjoy "Fun, Fun, Fun" and try to keep your foot off the fun pedal! It's a lot easier just to use what you have, but at some point there's no choice. Personally, I prefer an analog watch, knobs on the radio/player, rotary knobs on a stove, they make more sense to me and are faster to use, but I'm not likely to toss out the few digital things I use that do the job well, or better.
              Thanks for tossing in that question.

                As most know I sold a hard tonneau to RBird. He graciously gave me a updated copy of his cd full of thunderbird songs. Drove home in mom's Equinox dying to play it but alas no CD player. Sure it's a hoot. C'mon no CD player.

                  Obsolete, like 8-tracks, and cassettes before them. CD players are rare in the newest cars, even at the plusher levels.

                    I made SURE our new F-150 had a CD player. It also has plenty of USB ports to play thumb drives as well.

                    Sounds great and I am happy!

                    By the way, Bill, those are all different songs than on the first Bird CD.

                      Agree ... you can plug in a thumb drive just as fast as a CD and it can have 100 CDs at your fingertip.
                      Or you could just Bluetooth link your phone where those same 100 CDs can be stored. That's the way I do it whether I'm in my Taurus, wife's Edge, or riding my Indian motorcycle ... or streaming to earbuds while mowing the lawn. Easy and available - beats hauling 100 CDs around everywhere you go.

                        OK, how can a guy like me obtain this 2-disk set of very cool Thunderbird songs? And does anyone have a list of the tunes on those discs?
