Re: Err code displays when i put a cd into my radio.
The cd player only is the problem even though it is all in one unit the radio will still play. tr a different disk if no luck then unfortunatley the problem is in the radio itself. you can buy a nice after market radio for alot less money. keep me posted thanks

Does the radio work at all. or is the cd player the only issue.? most of the time you need to enter a radio code to unlock the radio. If you enter it wrong to many times it will display error on the display.if you dont know the code then you can call the dealership and get the code after you do the following below to get the serial number.
Press and hold 1 and 6 on the radio while still holding the 1 and 6 press the power button. At this time it will read off serial number
Is this a combo radio/cd or cd is separate.
If cd is separate, you may ask GM if there is a replacement.
When you get an error it is either the laser is not working or the laser's housing is not moving to read the disc
The err is short for error.If the cd player accepts a cd and can't read it can cause err to display. The cd also can be scratched or the lens may be dirty or damaged.If you buy a cleaner cd and it doesn't work then its time to replace the radio preferrably an aftermarket because the factory type can cost up to $500 or more.
this generally means the laser is either dirty or the cd player is shot, err 01 is a disc reading problem. Try cleaning lens with cleaning disc first if this does not help i would replace the unit with another. i would recommend replacing it with a cheap aftermarket stereo.
