how do I reset it?
If there was an Error shown, then the likelyhood of a "Reset" is not going to helpa) To perform a Reset, disconnect the Negative Battery Cable for apprx 5 minutesNOTE: Disconnecting "may" cause the Unit to Lock & Unlock can only be performed via Dealer Scan Toolapprx 1/2 hour labor
b) To perform a "Hard Reset", remove the Radio & unplug completely for apprx 5 minutesReconnectWait apprx 30 seconds for the Unit to InitializeTurn Key On & Press Eject for CD's
c) To remove CD's that are stuck envolves the dismantaling of the Mechanism, which is not recommended.
d) You can opt for Repair, Exchange or Replace & the Shop that does that will send your CD's backapprx $ 265.00 - 345.00 depending on shop & partse) If you decide to Exchange or Replace, you can typically find the same Model Unit On-Line, E-Bay, etc. for less than Repair, "but" you will need Dealer to "Program" the New Unit
