not sure who told you that, but mitsu sends all the units out for repair. they never replace the unit with a new one.Originally posted by debrasmartin@Oct 23 2006, 06:10 PM
I also have the same problem with the CD Player, Error 3 Code. I have taken the car everywhere and since the unit that holds the changer houses the AC, the radio, heated seats, etc., I have been told by everyone that the only option is to replace the entire unit. That is really a shame since the part is way over $1000!!! It is absolutely ridiculous that there are absolutely no repairs for it.
Im afraid you wont be buying too many other cars, as that pretty much is how 90 percent of the world does it these days.If anyone knows of a repair, I certainly would love to know. I love this car, but I will never buy another car with this "all-in-one" arrangement.
you've waited 40000 miles to have it repaired?My CD Player went out at 38,000 miles. I have been looking for a solution ever since. I travel all the time with my job and now have 75,000 miles on the vehicle.

In agreement I work for a GM store and we don't replace with new units either it will be replaced with an exchange unit or will be sent away for repair!Originally posted by manybrews@Oct 24 2006, 09:37 PM
the fact that Ive worked for Mitsu for 15 years, and thats the ONLY way its ever been done.
mitsu has never ever replaced a failing radio/audio unit/amplifier with a brand new unit... they install repaired/rebuilt/refurbished units.
the same company that does that can repair yours. It may not be dirt cheap, but will certainly be less than 1000 bucks.
also.... if you dont like that, try ebay.
