I recently stopped suddenly and sent a cup of coffe into my stereo dash unit. Now the unit is inoperative, shows random characters on the display, and cannot be turned off. Circuit cleaning sprays have not helped. I am assumong the unit has gone south permanently, and I would like to replace the unit (stereo/cassette) with an identical used one or possibly a stereo/cd unit from a similar car that will connect without great trouble.
Anyone who has a working unit for sale, please let me know. Any hints on bringing the original back to life would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the plug Donnie. We do keep Becker rebuilt units in stock for most models since 1986. We also repair units and have boxes of used ones. We are an "Authorized" Becker Repair Facility which can be verified by the owners manual.

Mt brother Scott is the one to talk to. He can be emailed through our site www.continentalimports.com
