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.
You need the security code to reactivate it. If you havent got that hten try your local dealership. If still no go the stereo is useless....its an ant-theft device. If a garage changed the battery I would put it to them to fix / replace. If you did it then you are basically in for replacement stereo!!!
This is to inform you that no one could provide you the code that you need. That code is also called the 'Anti-theft' code which is unique with every car stereo.
You need to check the glove box that's in your car and look for a card. That card should carry the anti-theft code for your stereo.
If you could not find it, you need to pull out the stereo and get the serial number of the stereo on the side of it. Then call the car dealer or the manufacturer. They are the only one who could provide you the unique code for your stereo.
You would get this problem once the battery run out of charge, once the battery has been removed or once you change your alternator.
You need to call a dealer and verify owner information. They give you a code. Very common problem. This prevents thieves from stealing you stereo and being able to sell it. This can be prevnted by plugging an ac adapter and Jumpbox into you cigarette lighter while changing a battery.
