Hi All,

I just joined today so thank you for inviting me! I have a 2002 XJ8 and what brought me to the forum was the good ole CD changer issue. I just want to thank everyone bc that is exactly was with the worm gear (So thank you very much to Miko's Weblog along with everyone that added to it!!!). That was a huge life and money saver. I don't know if anyone else ran into this issue; however, after everything pas reinstalled in the trunk (boot) of the car I turn it on to park in the garage and a error message comes up on the display in regards to "check your rear lights." I was like you gotta be kidding me, right? Well I'm wondering if I inadvertently pinched the wire under the bracket of the changer? It was getting dark so I thought I would wait until morning to check on that issue (self inflicted!). Anyways, it is nice to meet everyone in advance and please let me know if the rear tai light didn't work after reinstalling the changer (the blinker works and back fog light),
