Customer Question
I have tried several...

I have tried several Factory CD players in my s10, which had a cassette player in it before and every time I get this message "ERR" on the display screen. It takes the cd in waits a few seconds, ejects it and then I get the ERR message. Is it possible to just swap out a factory cassette player for a factory CD player or do you need to do something else?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Do you have scan tool or a code reader?

150000. and I have access to a scan tool but don't have one myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your S10?

2000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S10 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am doing it myself and as far as trying anything else I have tried several different CD players none of which I am sure are functional.

if you have a gm tech II scan tool will be good idea to scan it ,but usually the cd/ player needs changed ,unless we have a wiring issue, pull it out and inspect the connector for any burned pins or loose making poor connection \

I have tried 4 or5 from a salvage yard and I bought one on ebay that was supposed to be fully functional.
Chevy Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 2 months ago

4 or 5 in a row , you can have bad ones from junk yard ,unless it is one hell coincidence

check the connector , wiggle the wires on rear connector while on , any flickering on display

I can view it but mine does not have a number associated with the err message. It is just the three letters "err".
Chevy Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 2 months ago

well that is why we need a capable scanner to pull which code we have or it will be a guess and end up throwing parts at it

can you run this test ,click on link
