There should be a display. OE radios tend to use the car's general purpose computer display.
If there is a code It is likely to be an OE product and the code and audio manual (and spare keys) should have been passed on by the previous owner. If such things are not with the car the resale price should be considerably lower reflecting the trouble and expense not having such things can cause subsequent owners.
If the previous owner cannot or will not help I suggest you contact your local VW dealer.
Jan 9, 2008 - So when I tried to play a CD that has been in there forever, ... had that problem too! it would be in 50 degree weather.. discs wont change, play or eject. garaged the .... So last week I took my 06 (w/ Bose) in to the dealer for the stuck CD. ... said they send the CD player back to the factory and they will get the ...
The motors for the eject tend to strip out (several very small plastic gears. Hopefully this is not the problem because it is impossible to find parts. The other option is that dust/dirt have built up inside and the sensor does not feel/see the disk you are trying to insert. Use a can of compressed air (office store - sold to clean computer keyboards, printers, ...). Spray into the cd slot to remove dust.
If it uses a magazine and that magazine has been inserted properly, your problem may be a stuck CD. It is not easy to gain access withou some disassembly. Also, in view of the age of your Kia the changer may have failed mechanically
Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement... First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry. FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.
Apparently you do not have a CD changer connected to your radio and that is why you get an error when you press the CD button. However sometimes it's an error code and means that you need to reenter the code for the radio. Is there a place to put in a CD? If so, here's a link to some info on your radio and entering your code.
Disconnect the battery and re-connect it and it will reset the cd player and it should acknowledge the cd and you should be able to eject it. Badly scratched cd's will mess up the player as will paper labels on c.d.'s. Good luck
