ERR 2 (error 2) typically means the CD Mechanism is stuck in a certain spot, which means you will need the Unit Repaired or Replaced.
IF the Radio does not come On & just the CD is trying to work or displays, then the Electronic Radio / CD switch is not being released
You can try:
Remove the Unit & unplug "completely"
Note: Pulling fuses is not the same
Wait apprx 5 minutes for the memory of the Unit to drain
Reconnect & Reinstall
Wait for apprx 30 seconds for the Unit to "Initialize"
Press Eject Button
Turn Key ON & try CD & Radio
.

IF the above does not work, then the Unit needs Repair or Replace
Repair apprx $245.00 - 385.00 depending on Shop & Parts
Many times you can get the same Model Number Unit On-Line, E-Bay, etc for less than Repair
