With the low current draw that a cd unit uses It would take some hours to affect a good battery. Remove the fuse for the cd unit and have a battery shop check the battery for a bad cell ( Load test on the battery). Pull the cd player and have a tecki look at it as I feel you have 2 faults not connected.
A couple of different possibilities here but this is a typical problem when it comes to the MB cd changers. Before ruling the cd changer bad, check the spring settings on the sides of the changer. Make sure they are in the 'H' position since it sits in the glovebox. The Mercedes cd changers don't have a reset button. 95% of the time its the cd changer that is bad when this scenario happens. Its caused by a linkage that gets knocked out of place internally of the cd changer. Also try not to use burned or homemade cd's as they can also cause the cd changer not to read the discs anymore.If your cd changer is brand new or a factory rebuild then the dealer should change it out no problem since MB cd changers are known for this problem. Also the version coding needs to done to configure the D2B fiber optic ring properly.
Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement...
First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry.
FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam and cause the player to display error codes E-01 thru E-07. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.
sounds like they may have forgotten to take out transit plugs from radio which holds cd mechanism in place when shipping unless you got a new radio thats a dud? but that may also mean dealer didnt check operation of new unit after replacement if replaced which is what usually needs to be done when this error message comes up
As the consumer there is nothing U can do to fix this problem, the error code is for a radio technician with the right technical publications and tools to fix the problem, you will have to pull the radio/CD player and send it out for repair with an authorized Lexus sound system repair station.
The trunk mounted 12 disc magazine changer with the Bose audio system is made by Pioneer. Mine is a bit flaky too so I try to avoid unnecessarily swapping out the CD's. Those error codes can mean anything from a defective/wrong disc type (it does not support MP3 discs), a disc being upside down, or forgetting to close the magazine loading door. It can also indicate condensation on the laser lens or a system malfunction. There may be a list of error codes in the owner's manual if you have one, I currently don't.
Assuming you have checked all of the possible human errors above, there are aftermarket sellers that claim you can adapt an aftermarket changer to the Bose system albeit with with inferior sound quality to the original system. Bose is typically well-known for it's audio quality. That being said, the other option would be to seek a repair facility that can repair these changers. There are some places on-line that repair car audio that also might be able to help.
A cheaper workaround might be to hook up a portable CD/MP3 player using a cassette adapter. Assuming the cassette player, amp and speakers are good, you would possibly still get fairly high quality sound from the Bose system.
Well I had a 1990 Xj6 with an aftermarket cd-changer in the trunk and it didn't work, so when I took it to an audio specialist he said that it needed to be replaced. But what he did say is that most manufactures use the same connection cables for their products, ex. Sony plugs will work on all Sony cd-changers. I now have a 1994 Jaguar XJ6 and I have the same error code. I know that Jaguar installed Alpine CHM-S620 cd-changers. So in theroy you could go to an audio store and get the same cd-changer and it should have the same plugs so you wont need to rewire anything. I havent done it yet because I just bought the 1994.
