For the life of me I cannot find a fix for the DTC error codes D0193 and D0196.

They are in relation to the radio and DVD system. Regarding the DVD, the system will not turn on and regarding the radio, Satellite, Bluetooth user audio and iPod all have very low and distorted sound/volume. AM/FM and CD work normal.

The problem occurred spontaneously one day when I turned the car on. I did the self diagnostic test on the radio to find the error codes.

I tried replacing the radio fuse and checked the connections with the satellite radio module with no positive results. I cannot find a fix anywhere and do not want to take it to the dealership and pay money for something I can probably fix on my own ... Once I figure out what the fix is.

Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your advice.
