Hey guys ...
Wow, I've very rarely asked for any help as the car has been so good to me.
However, this past weekend we changed her battery for a new one.
Since then, my stock 6 disc cd changer no longer works. It makes a clicking noise as though it is trying to retrieve a disc, but it keeps saying "MECHANICAL ERR". Then a few seconds later it says "EJECT DISC".
I have tried pushing the eject button numerous times, and have tried holding the button for minutes, and NOTHING. PLEASE HELP!
I have 6 CDs in there that a) I don't want to lose, and b) I use my cd changer all the time so I want it back up and running.
When I googled the problem, it is amazing at how many other people have had the same issue with their stock 6 cd changer after replacing the battery. The bad news is, not one found a solution. Some of them had to pay for a new radio while others paid hundreds of dollars to have it checked out at the dealership.
I'd like to avoid the dealership as I doubt my extended warranty will cover this, but I really want it working again.
My dad will try disconnecting the battery this weekend and reconnecting it.
What other options do I have?
