Now is the time to switch the CD Player out for the BikeMp3 or J&M MP3 player for about $100. They plug right into the CD player connector.
I had my CD player for over 7 years and it worked flawlessly on my '03. When I first transferred it to my '10, it still worked as advertised. Then, all of a sudden I started getting the dreaded "MECH ERR". This was an off and on relationship ... sometimes it recovered, and sometimes it didn't.
I finally took it out and took it apart to see if anything mechanical was hanging it up. I found nothing unusual. I put it back and it worked again for awhile. Then it eventually started acting up again and never recovered from the dreaded "MECH ERR".
So, I bought the BikeMp3 and loaded up the disk with a gazillion songs. I've been happy ever since.
The bottom line is I wasted over $800 on a CD player that is not only ancient technology, but also junk. The BikeMp3 or J&M MP3 player is the way to go now.
