That is a DC error.

What happened and why?
amp IC is fried, probably from overheating playing at very loud level. Maybe from a speaker going bad, maybe just random part failure

Is this fixable?
Yes

How do i fix it?
You must get the replacement part, take the radio apart, remove the solder from the amp ic, put new IC in and resolder connections. Put radio back together without forgetting anything you took apart. Also need to make sure the soldering is good, no solder bridges or anything like that (you wouldn't want to blow it up again right after replacing it)

How do i prevent this from happening again?
If it was caused by playing too loud for too long, don't turn volume up to point of hearning any distortion, that is clipping in the amp you hear and is very ******* amplifier ic.
If it happened from a speaker going bad you must replace the bad speaker.
If it was a random part failure there is not much you can do, you had some bad luck, thats all.

If you do not know how to remove solder and to solder very good, it is reccomended that you take it in for service, but it may not be worth it since this unit is not very exspensive. A shop may charge as much as $100 for this repair. part alone is about $30 or $40.

If you want to know the part number please reply and I will look it up for you, or you can get the generic number off the ic itself.

Is having trouble reading or tracking disc.I opened top and while playing disc the tracking mechanism goes out then back in and starts playing where it stopped?


You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

My dome lights stay on for about 15 to 20 minutes and my radio shuts off now when i turn the car off, it normally stays on when car is turned off until you open a door.


This is normal...........The dome light will give you time to collect your belongings and the radio or music of your choice will stay playing for about 15 min unless the door opens..............It is just the way cadi rolls........Hope this helps.

During performance, the monitor channel started giving loud noises and no music anymore. The mains channel was playing normally. 15 minutes later, the unit started giving a burned smell and I switched it...


Likely a failure of one of the amps and now more... You should have shut it down when it started making noises. This is NOT a DIY repair. Take it to a competent repair shop for service.

You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.
