if its a radio shack radio, it means E13 means "Tape Communication Error". It is caused by the microprocessor reading speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast, most other makes mean about the same thing, normally a stuck tape will cause this code to show up, either that or the drive gear that loads and unloads the tape is broken, cracked, or jammed
you can get all kinds of solutions like the local radio things. Monster and a bunch of companies off that.
The BEST alternative (imho) is the USA Spec brand that charges your ipod and controls it to your factory radio displaying names, etc. It hooks up to your satellite radio thing and uses channel 5 i think.
it's ~ $150. Crutchfield sells this and you can install yourself with relative ease. An example: USA SPEC
May just be the wiring of the car or maybe something is loose or became disconnected. If the radio has been removed then that's an easy problem to get. It may also be the anti-theft system. Some vehicles can be very difficult to install a stereo system or any other add-on because of the way it's wired for the anti-theft.
I have also heard that some of the Jettas had wiring problems that were hard to trace. I know someone who had one that was an early 2000 model.
Try to find out if there were any recalls about that, but I would probably just get another one installed at some place that's experienced with radio installations because they would know how to wire these thing in. Hope this helps
If you disconnect one of the battery cables for about 30 sec and reconnect it, that will reset the CD player. Then you can put in the key and see if can eject the offending CD. My bet is that it won't. I own a 2006 with a failing CD (getting it replaced on warranty next week). The CD player in these cars is a real stinker. Nissan should be ashamed.
Mine had a similar problem (radio/tape casette days a 2 decades ago) Had to return the radio 3 times till they finally fixed it correctly. It was a problem internal to the radio. Sounds like you may have a compnent loose & not soldered well to the PC board. Or maybe it's a bad component & got fried. (output transistors ?)
