the cd's changers are known to be junk in the rec nav units. mine doesn't work either. my display says disc error. i just use my ipod touch or listen to satellite radio

well that sucks, i didn't know if it was repairable or not. i've been playing cd's through the VES and it works great i just don't like breaking my back to change discs lol. i tried unplugging it and it still said disc error. does your jeep have built in satellite radio or did you have to buy everything with the separate unit that goes on your dash?

i originally had an RAQ radio with satellite and replaced it with the REC Nav unit. i bought it off ebay with no returns. the disc error was on the screen when i first turned it on. seller never said anything about it. the REC had the satellite on it already too. i had to call sirius and give them the REC's id number. on a side note, MR.cd1 is who repairs the REC units but he told me it would be around $250. i think there is a place called denver radio but it's close to the same price. i've read that others have changed out the disc changer from an RAQ to the REC too.

very helpful info thanks a lot. $250 sounds better than $600 to buy a used one with no guarantees that it doesn't have the same problem... or $1,800 for a new one lol. I've looked at aftermarket such as alpine and kenwood but idt u can beat the factory look and quality

I believe the REC is made by Alpine.
