Default CD Player stopped working

I have a 2004 Limited Edition PT Cruiser with 27,500 miles on it. I cleaned some corrosion off of the battery last weekend. When I started the car up, the CD player shuffled through the cd's. A few days later when I went to listen to a CD, the radio would not even register that there is a CD player in the car. It just goes from AM to FM. The Chrysler service guy said he'd seen this and that this was a problem with some of these cars. Said it would cost me about $600 and that my CDs are stuck in there until the radio is pulled apart. Also said it'd be cheaper to take it to an audio store and have a new radio put in. The car's warranty expired in April 07.
As I said, the car only has 27,500 miles on it!!! Plus, I have Sirius so I rarely listen to anything but satalite so how does something like this get broken with so little use???? Has anyone heard of this issue? Any advise? I looked all over the internet & didn't see much on this. Thanks! ajc

Never heard of your problem before. I'd get another opinion from a stereo shop that specializes in car stereos. When my stereo in my Vette went haywire, I was told on the Corvette forums of a place that specializes in just such things. Contacted them and sent them my stereo. Had it back fixed in about a week. Take a look at this site for more info:

Our battery just died, when we replaced it the radio is fine, but the CD player won't respond to the keys... it clunks around like it's got a jammed disk, but nada. It's also a 2004... any luck?
It's not the fuses, it sounds like a chip or computer rebooting error.

I had this happen to my stock CD- Radio . When I changed the battery (only 2
years old) on my 05. The radio would play but it fried the circuit to the player.
At the time I was covered under the warranty .

Ours just slid out of warranty... of course. That must be what happened ours... the charge voltage was too much for the CD boards.
