    I believe once that msg comes up, the radio is no more good. CD player is shot.

    You could try to disconnect the negative terminal for a few mins, reconnect and see if you get the same msg.

    Unless the replacement radio comes with a code card, yes you will have to go to the dealer. You could try eBay and find out if the radios on there come with the code card.

    If you go aftermarket, you shouldn't have to go to a dealer to have it programmed.

    The only thinly that the amp controls is the rear woofers, and yes they still work.

    I say rip it all out and start fresh. Does it have steering wheel controls? You may want to start with the hu, so you can keep those if you already have em.

    Was it a loose connection behind the radio?
