I have an Error Code 3 - which indicates that the CD player is not working properly. The CD will not eject nor play. I can't see the CD to try to pull it out. Lexus wants $125 to diagnose challenge indicating if it is not a stuck CD that they can easily pull out that a refurbished CD player will cost $900. I Googled repairing CD myself -- but one has to pull out all sorts of other components to disable the unit. A nightmare process.
1. Anyone have similar challenge and how did you resolve?
2. Has anyone replaced successfully this radio unit with aftermarket radio? If so, which one do you recommend?
I have the premium radio with Mark Levison sound system 2006.
