Mid-Series stacker no go

Hi

I just got my EF today, and already it's annoying me. When I got it, the owner had put a new battery in, and the stereo needed a new code. I eventually found it in the owners book. Everything works fine, until I press the CD button, then it just shows ' 2 E ' and that's it. Is there something I am doing wrong? I've loaded the cd's in properly.

Sounds like an error code from the CD player!

Give it a reset and start from there!

Just tried unplugging and plugging the head unit and stacker, both did nothing.

Tried getting a code From Ford, they gave me the same code as the one I have. They tried to sell me a stacker unit, I declined. I took the car to Car Audio Services in Sefton Park, they are looking at it on tuesday, they reckon it isn't that major.

I rang them today, they have repaired it, there was a switch broken in it somewhere, which cost $35, plus the $30 quote fee, which isn't too bad
