Default POS buick radio!

ok guys here the deal the factory radio in my 97sabre is a POS it allways skips on cds and then the vds get BURNING HOT and it seems to allways think a tape is in the deck and its allways trying to switch sources from like cd radio and tape it gives some random errcodes like err11 and i dont know if its err12 or err21 err22 i am nut sure but i think those codes are the ones that come up. should i jusr ditch it and get one from the junk yard? and how do you turn on theft lock so the little light flashs?

i think if you are considering getting one from the junk yard, you might as well get one from circuit city or best buy with free installation..... it will sound better too. just get a cheap panasonic or jvc

Burning hot VD? I think you are consulting the wrong people....

What do you want? An original radio to keep the original look or just whatever? Me... I like the stock look when it comes to radios, so I still have a stock one. I hate how a lot of aftermarket kits stick out.

E11 : Broken Tape Error Cause(*): A broken cassette tape Correction(*): Substitute a different cassette tape

what does this mean? there is NO tape in the deck to be broken it just thinks there is one inside and it drives me nutsand the skiping cd prob drives me insain do you think one of those CD laser cleaning things will help that prob?

Can you tell if the tape carriage is up or down if you peek in there? Maybe if it'* stuck down you could find a way to get it to pop back up. A laser cleaning might help with the skipping. If it doesn't, my reaction would be to replace the radio, especially if I couldn't fix the tape deck either.
