In the manual it states that the security system may disable the radio when the battery is disconnected. I dont have a manual in front of me, but I believe it mentions that there is a reset procedure available.

Check your Owners Manual. When the battery is disconnected the radio forgets all of its settings and has to be reprogrammed. If it is a stock radio the directions are in the owners manual. If it is not stock check the radio manufactures website for instructions. This is not a big deal. At the worst take the car to a Automotive Stereo Shop and they should be able to fix it fast and cheap. Good Luck.

My 1990 corvette was running then I took it to a mechanic for a tune up and oil change he Put it on the hoist and now my corvette does not start no more.


Does the vehicle crank and not start? Your mechanic must re check his work then inspect battery, spark, fuel pressure 30psi min,and computer codes. Good luck and always have your mechanic test drive vehicle to confirm repair.

Ford F 150 Radio stuck in Phone mode


Hi,
Leave the battery disconnected overnight - NOTE THE ALARM AND OTHER BATTERY DEPENDENT ITEMS MAY NEED RESET, or just pull the fuse for the radio - read your owner's manual..
If it still doesn't reset, you'll need to remove the radio or see if it has a reset option on the radio.

90 % chances you also have a shorted alternator it kills the battery.
I have two Luminas and one Malibu and Corvette (mid/late 1990- 2000's) they have the same problems... suddenly dead batteries
Please check alternator when replacing batery.
