CD Electrically Whirring
Starting the car today there was an electrical whirring coming from the CD player, I turned off the car, restarted it - and it didn't appear again. When I got home, I tried starting the car again and the noise came back (it definitely sounds like it's coming from the CD player) the only difference this time, is when turning off the engine, the noise continues for about 10 seconds. You can stop the noise with the engine started by trying to eject the CD, giving an Error 99 code on the player. I do know there are a couple of CDs jammed in the player (which I assume must be the cause) but it has never caused this noise before. Is there anything I can do, short of paying £400 for Subaru to replace the CD player.
EDIT: Also, if I replace the stereo with an aftermarket one - what aspect of the satnav would I lose (if any)?
