Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the radio starting displaying an error message on it's own then that would indicate internal failure, which would require it to replaced or sent out to an automotive radio/electronics repair facility.

Did the problem start as a result of a jump start, repair, etc?
Do any radio functions work?
