Sounds like a transistor or programmer chip problem with the unit itself, you can go to the dealer and have it taken out and sent in for repair, wait until it is fixed and then go back and have it reinstalled and recoded, or you can go to someplace like car toys and have the system replaced with an after market unit, and finally if you want to take a chance find a used one with the wrecked or destroyed vehicles vin attached, and have the dealer install it and recode it.

I seem to recall a Toyota Service Bulletin(s) concerning issues as you describe. You would have to access them through your Mechanic who subscribes to Toyota Tech info for details. You might try a "Reset". See if you can find a Radio/CD fuse or 2. I seem to remember Radio Fuse #1...and...Radio Fuse #2. Remove both and wait about 5 min. then re-install and check operation of the equipment in question. Get back to us with results.

Where do you find the fuses?

The fuse for the Audio System should be under the the left side kick panel. The fuse cover should ID the fuses. Good Luck

Solved: Just press Eject button for 10-20 second until "CD in" disappear.


Thank you for this input.

I was on a long trip and my Toyota wouldn't accept the CD all of the sudden. It would say there was already a CD inside. I was bored so as I was driving I kept turning the player on and off. Sometimes it would act like there was no CD in the player and that's when I would push the CD in. Eventually it accepted the CD and it's still working.


Kat, have you tried cleaning it with one of those CD disc's with small brushes on it, I had one in my house that was doing the same thing until it cleaned it, and it is still working, so now I clean it at least every other month.

Oh wow, I didn't even know a CD player brush existed. Thanks Tennisshoes!


Yep, getting a little hard to find in stores anymore, some electronic places still have them, but EBay has quite a choice.
