  • New Stereo Help

    I posted something on this 6 months ago but didn't get much of a response. Before calling Keith for his advice, has anyone switched out their stock Sony stereo for a new one? My stereo and dash remote worked properly for about a year. Now, the remote is completely useless and none of the buttons work on the unit itself. All that works is when I put in a cd....can't change volume, can't switch to radio, etc.

    I am hoping to find any cd player/radio that I can swap in fairly easily. I was hoping to avoid running new wire and making a big project out of this so I'd love to hear from someone else that has done this. I would make a terrible electrician so any steps you could give would be appreciated.

    if it is a Sony, which I do believe it is, any Sony radio/CD will be just a swap out as they use the same rear connections. I changed my stereo in my 01 28 in 2005 for the same reasons.

      It is a sony. Do you remember which model you put in that matched up to the existing plug-in.

        It was the Sony CDX-F50M about $175-$200 I also changed the wired remote (with the RM-X55m)in which that wire needed to be replaced.

        Good luck,
