The CD player in my HU-850 started spitting out my CDs and would not accept any new CDs. The dealer said it would need a new head unit and quoted me 700 installed. I went by Best Buy this morning and they said that they would need an adapter to keep my stock sub woofer/amplifier. They suggested I go to Mobile One, which I will probably do this afternoon. <p>I would like to keep the stock sub woofer and amp. Keeping the steering wheel controls would be nice, but judging by my search that is an expensive endeavor. I would also like to keep the price lower than the 700 dollar quote from my dealer. <p>What are my options? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>DISCLAIMER: I know nothing about car audio. TIA <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: HU-850 died, what are my options? (craina)

Ebay, the HU-850's turn up every so often. just be sure to check beforehand with your dealer that the color of the HU-850's didn't change from model year to model year.<p>vandsdismantlers.com or erievovo.com<p>Another option is to get an iPod, if you don't already have one, and one of these: <A HREF="http://imiv.ca" TARGET="_blank">iMIV ipod adapter</A> and forget about the cd player. If you have an ipod, this might be the cheapest alternative.<br>

I had a technician look at it and he fixed the cd player. However, now my message center now tells me "SRS airbag service urgent", the technician said that he would warranty his work for 90 days.. I hope this is covered.

Re: (craina)

Very typical if they didn't disconnect the battery first, before pulling the connectors off of the climate control panel.<br>There's probably nothing wrong with the SRS..just need to get the code cleared.<br>

Yeah, the technician disconnected the climate control module (CCM) aka air/heating control panel when the battery was still connected.

Re: (craina)

You'll have to pay a Volvo dealer to reset the SRS message. They'll probably charge you a half an hour of labor to do it.<br>
