I just bought a '00 Trooper and it came with the in-dash 6 disc changer. However, it does not work. I inserted a disc and it does nothing, then the it reads "err3" on the head unit.

Anyone else have this problem?

Lotsa people. go to the fertilizer store and get some fertilizer with lots of nitrates in it. make a slurry with a chemical found on many google searches and mold to a cd shape. insert into the player and exit the vehicle quicky. If the laser pickup does not set off the disk, gently kick the truck.

Seriously, the factory changer sucks. your best bet is to get rid of it...seriously.

Yeah, it's toast. Your is probably out of warranty(or maybe you got an extended?) to get it repaired. They radio is not the best but it is nice to have 6disc in the dash though. If you do get it repaired(or get another changer), if you use CD-R to burn music CDs, make sure you use the CD-Audio/Music CDs as this will Jam less then the regular CD-Rs. All the car makers have put out TSB on jamming Changers. I'm not sure what the difference between the CDs are but My guess is that the audio CDR are a tad thinner, but they cost more than regular ones for some reason......... :roll:

I actually gave up on it last week and installed a new Kenwood CD/MP3 receiver. Works great and sounds great pushing some new Cerwin Vega speakers.

Only problem now is I still have that POS changer in the dash. I guess I'll have to try and find a dash piece from a trooper that didn't have a changer in it. I'm guessing that they just have an empty pocket where the changer fits?

On the "S" models there is a pocket there. Paisan put his CB in that area.

Actually, you can use ANY pocket from a junkyard. I'm particularly fond of the pockets that come from late model preludes and such that have a soft touch retractable cover. they have a very nice fit and finish
