I have a 2005 Santa fe and I can not get the cd to come out of the stereo. I press eject and nothing happens. I can still listen to the radio and the CD IN icon is lit up so it knows there is CD in there. I've pulled the fuse, waited a minute and reinsert the fuse but this has not helped. Anyone know if there is a manual eject button or some other way to get it out.

Thanks

The Clarion stereo in my Santy did the same thing and it turned out to be a bit of plastic had snapped inside it. When I pressed eject mine made clicking sounds as if it was trying to eject but the disc wouldn't come out. I ended up taking it out and buying a Sony as it wasn't worth the hassle getting it fixed.

My dad had a CD get stuck in his '93 Saab about ten years ago but I'm guessing that doesn't help you.

But seriously...it seems to me that the Santy's sound system has a fairly solid track record. I would just do what Steff has suggested and replace the head unit. You can hack up the old one to get your CD out.

Just so you know you are not alone...my 2001 SF has been doing a similar thing for about five years. When I try to put in a CD, it starts clicking really badly after it is inserted then it ejects all by itself after a few seconds. I have to re-insert the CD five or ten times before it will finally stay in and act normally. I have to go through this every time I change CDs. I haven't bothered to change the player because I don't listen to CD's often.

I have a 2002 with the CD/casette combo (i have not used casettes in years) and on very cold days I can't insert a CD. I go to push one in and as I do there is resistance about 1/4 of the way in. I pull it back out and hit the eject button and I hear the motor inside run for a few seconds. Seems like it attempts to set the unit in the position to accept a CD again. When I insert it again it will pull it in but then eject it back on its own again. I think the cold causes resistance in the gears in the unit. Probably whatever lubrication is on those parts has a high viscosity in cold conditions. After the car warms up inside it works perfectly which is around 10 or 15 minutes. Anybody else having this kind of issue?

I too had the same problem. Thought is was the wife's fault until I found others with the same issue. Simple solution was to replace the head unit with an aftermarket. Tremendous increase in sound quality. Well worth the $160 for everything from Crutchfield (dash kit, install instructions, Monsoon factory system adapter, and head unit). I did the install in about 2 hours taking my sweet time. I donated the old head unit to the trash gods. At least it lasted 100K miles.

Dear Beef and others,

I HAVE A SOLUTION! This has worked on many stuck CD players, but especially Sonata and Santa Fe Hyundai OEM players. Get a # 2 crochet needle from any hobby store or Walmart fabric department. This has a hook on the end but slender enough to fit through the opening. Slide the hook end in sideways. Turn the hook down after getting 4 inches in the opening. Drag across the center to attempt to grab the edge of the CD hole in the center while pressing the manual eject button. Once you have the hole caught, gently pull the CD toward the front slot. for any broken pieces, use a ShopVac with the crevice tool and the crochet hook.

This is way smarter than removing the CD player.

Where's my bailout?

try using an air can the same you use for your computer! stick to end in and press the trigger for a few seconds could have something stuck between the disc. I had the same issue on mine same year as yours. I was able to grab hold of the cd with a pair of twizzers and that seemed to dislodge the cd and it came right out. was scared to put a new cd in but has works ever since.

THANK YOU!! I bought the car for my daughter in April. We both just resigned to the fact that the cd player was "broken". On a wild hair today, she decided to try to fix it. (Removing the front with various tools.) I went online, found this forum. . . and it worked!! No removal of stereo necessary. I just used a paperclip, unfolded, and bent at the end, (like a crochet needle that someone suggested.) It worked beautifully!! I then blew air through it to make sure nothing was stuck. Just to see what would happen, we put in another cd. It played, it ejected, another one in, all working!! Thank you so much!!
