I was getting "E20" error's on my monsoon stereo when I tried to play CD's
on my 99 Firebird. "E20" is apparently an internal focus problem. I decided
that it was probably unfixable and decided to replace the unit with another.
I bought one off of E-bay which the seller claimed worked perfectly. I just
installed it and guess what? I get the same "E20" error with the replacement
unit. Could I be having a problem with the wiring? Or do I just have bad
luck with getting another failed unit?
Any help would be appreciated.
I feel you probably fixed it by now. But the unit needs
"unlocking"--it's made for a certain vehicle, it's like a theft-proof
design: when removed from its "home" car, it locks & will not play in
another application w/o first unlocking. Often it will not even play in its
home-car until its factory code nos. are punched back in after re-installing
in the home-car, as when a new battery is installed & there is no power to
it during the exchange process . I recently had a Monsoon w/cd/mp3 factory
unit from a Pontiac unlocked so as to operate in ANY vehicle w/o need for
code (mine is an S-10 pickup). Electronics shop charged me $50, including
shipping. Paid $45 for the unit. BTW: the unit looks factory in my pickup,
& I love those mp3 discs with 270 songs on it!
LUCK TO YOU, S
