The radio code is unique to every radio and car, it was supplied with the owners manual packet when the car was sold.

How can I eject stuck CDs from CD player 2006 toyota camry grande?

Isn't there a security code needed to reset the stereo after a battery change? The Stereo thinks it has been stolen. See your Manual and see your nearest Toyota dealer. Or use a tweezers to reach in and pull out the stuck CD. And clean the rollers with alcohol.

I have change the battery on my 2005 yukon, and my 6 cd radio changer tells me there is no discs, but the truth is it has all the 6 cd's in; is there a way to reset this so i could pull or play the...

I know what this is, when you changed your battery you reset your in dash cd player. Shuting off the security code. you need to take it to a shop or at the worst your local Dealership and they can reset the security code on your radio and it should work proper again. This is an anti theft device that disables the deck if it is removed from the dash Or from power. Hope that helps.

CD player quit working after battery installation

Some of these new systems are very finicky, to reset you need to disconnect the negative battery cable wait a few minutes then reconnect, new electronics are sensitive to the difference.
It's possible the low voltage caused by the dying battery actually damaged your CD player, digital electronics are great but they have some serious weaknesses too.
Find out what brand and model your CD player is then go online and do a search for a service manual for your player, you may find an easy fix that way.
Best of luck!

I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra, I changed the battery , now I need the reset code for the CD player HM 5064. I cannot find my manual. Can anybody help?

Normally the Audio (Radio CODE) is noted in the owner's manual. If you don't have it, you must contact Hyundai Motor America and give them the Vehicle VIN number... they may then (possibly) be able to give you the CODE.
