Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This message turns on when there is a fault in the radio/head unit itself.This is usually an internal fault requiring either removal and repair by a repair facility or replacement.I would have the power and ground signals tested to it to see if these are all o.k. (it sounds like they are since you are receiving a message) and to check the connections at it.If these are o.k. then the head unit requires replacement.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
