Hi, The "sec" could probably stand for security lock. It is a feature to discourage car stereo theft but is prooving to be more of an owner's problem when battery dies or are replaced or simply when disconnected for maintenance or whatever. The sad part is you have to get in touch with the original dealer of the car who would probably ask you for registration papers, proof of ownership (deed of sale), VIN, make/model/serial number of the stereo and/or other documents. I know its a bit of inconvenience but there is not other way since they have to check a database and fill in so many data themselves. I just hope the dealer is friendly enough. Good luck and kind regards.

Cd jammed won,t eject


Hi.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while turning on the stereo at the same time. If that does not work disconnect battery terminal for one minute to reset the electrics and try again pressing eject repeatedly on startup. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed before disconnecting the battery.

If that does not work, then the unit must be disassembled. The car stereo must be removed from the dash. The unit must be disassembled removing screws at back and bottom and undoing metal casing clips. That will reveal the CD drive allowing to remove the disk.

Regards.

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.


If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

1998 Honda Accord EX stereo/CD player has Code E on the screen... What is the cause of this and what can I do to fix it?


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.

I have recently bought a car that has a jvc kd-r601 stereo and I have disconnected battery and now it wont work, any ideas?


Reconnecting the battery causes a surge which can pop fuse. Generally there will be a fuse panel under the hood and underneath or on the side of a dash. There is also a fuse on the back of the stereo

When trying to play cds keep getting ''E'' error message. this is in my car cd player. any suggestions


If the message is "error" The CD Lens is bad. Try disconnecting the negative lead from the car battery for about 10 min. But! Make sure your stereo does not have an anti-theft system, because if you disconnect the battery the stereo needs to put a code or will not work again. If after this your stereo still not working you have to take it to any electronics repair shop (the CD lens is bad).

CD player in 2007 f150 stopped working


Try disconnecting the negative wire on your battery. Wait a few seconds then reconnect it. this will reset your entire electronics system including your cd player. this might fix the problem. If this is an aftermarket unit and the problem continues after disconnecting the battery take the unit back to where you bought it and they'll replace it if its still under warranty. If its a factory unit take it to a ford dealership for service, or invest in an aftermarket headunit. note.... make sure you disconnect the negative terminal NOT the positive.

NOT POWERING UP.


This unit is equipped with ESIV which is an electronic security system that is coded by any cd of the users choice. If the ESIV was on when the unit was un-installed from wherever it was, it will not work. find the units serial #, call Eclipse, IF it has Not been reported stolen, you can get the code reset by Eclipse. I think they charge for this service, however it's worth it. If there is a problem with the unit, it can be repaired by them as well. Most car deck repairs are under $ 150 unless it's really serious. Best of luck! Hope this helps

The stereos antitheft isnt armed is it. This makes it so the stereo wont work until it is disarmed by typing in a 4 number code for your car. Its only supposed to arm if the power is cut though such as the fuse was pulled or the battery was disconnected from the car.

CD Ejects


A couple of suggestions. Check ALL the fuses, most units have 2 or more. Search the front panel carefully, many units have a tiny 'reset' switch, which is activated by pushing a pencil point into it's hole. They are usually marked, but with tiny letters.
