The radio in my vehicle listed above does not have a CD player. There are salvaged/used Kia Sorento radios with CD player built in for sale. Can the original radio be replaced with a salvaged radio/cd unit using the same wiring harness? Will the 'codes' need to be reloaded by a Kia dealer?

That's a lot of things to check. I suspect a dealer who have to do a bit of research t check all that out. Is there a way to do the checking on line?

Looking at the replacement instructions it does not say the dealer needs to code the radio or any setup procedure is needed. Check out the images (below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
