Default Monsoon Error Code

Have searched but cannot find any info on error codes for the Monsoon CD player. Have an "Error 2" and it ejects the cd. Even new cd's are ejected. Anyone have a source as to what the error codes mean. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Ed

If your car has under 50K miles on it, get it replaced under the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

That's great IF the car is under warranty BUT if it's not, what might the reason for the code be?
Our 05 golf has also done this lately, sometimes error 1 or error 2, but later in the day it seems to work fine, it does not have multiple cds.

There's a service bulletin for CD*ERR 1.

"CD player displays CD * ERR 1. Mainly occurs when a newly purchased disc fails to play after initial loading into the player. Failure to play after loading may be caused by small bumps or flashing around the center hole and outside edge of disc. Do Not replace the CD player. Remove bumps or flashing by using a plastic instrument around these areas. Do Not enlarge the center hole.

* Fingerprints, dust or soil on the disc may cause skipping.
* Do Not use a circular motion to clean a disc, clean from center of disc to outer edge using a lint free soft cloth.
* Never attempt to play a cracked, warped, or damaged disc. This could severely damage the playback mechanism.
* Hard Frost: During cold weather, if the inside of the vehicle is suddenly warmed, a condition known as "Hard Frost" can occur (when condensation forms on the pick up lens inside the CD player).

Condensation can cause the laser beam to diffract and cause the CD player to generate an ERR code. During extreme cold temperatures, allow the CD player ample time to warm up prior to use."

Thanks Mo.

I think the cds giving us the problem were dirty.

I've seen both those error codes now on my cd player. The cd's are clean and scratch free. They play fine for awhile then the skipping starts an progressively gets worse until the cd fails to play at all then it spits out the cd. First time it said error 1 then next time, a few weeks later, it said error 2.

Even running a cd lens cleaner didn't seem to solve anything.

Then again, after 276,000KM's, I'm expecting things to go on the fritz!

We found a way to kinda trick the cd player.
Put the cd in then before it gets a chance to scan the cd hit the FM button to turn on the radio, then hit the cd button, it works most of the time.

My 03 Golf with the Monsoon just started to display "ERROR 1" while trying to load the CD. After trying several different scratchless clean CD with no luck I looked here. Is there a way to reset the player? I'll try pulling the battery cable for 20 minutesnd see if that resets things.

I used to get cd error on my 03 Jetta. This started when I installed a factory CD changer. After several repeated unplugging and pluggings, the error msg has never come back. The cd player in the car would not work either with the error msg.

After having the battery disconnected overnihjt, I still got the error 1.

I'm at a lose... maybe I can do something with my VAG-COM.

I don't think my problem was a power reset issue, but more like a bad connection at the plug-in. It can't hurt to try.

Did you get it to work again?

I found this post at VWvortex
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2645043

Now I'm thinking it is a CD stuck in the unit.

I'll I have to do is get some radio removal keys and start pulling it apart. Since it is already broken... it can't hurt.

Update: Went to the dealer yesterday with the recall for the break light. Had him look at the stereo and told him about the error 2 code. They ordered a new stereo for me. All covered under the warranty.

PS: The break light switch took less than 45 minutes - not bad services for around here.
