    Yeah that's what I've figured I need to do. My question comes from experience. I am original owner only 14m miles on it. I've had to replace battery several times. I have Never experienced either A- not keeping charge when battery was brand new and never had the problem with the radio not coming on at all.



    I noticed the little cover by dome light switch on right side which is part of the infrared passenger monitoring system is gone. Nowhere to be found in vehicle. Very odd, I wondered if possiblly someone could have attempted theft which is causing my problem. Sounds wierd right?



    Is there a preferred battery to use? AutoZone has a Durablast I think is the name will it work

    us the battery from the dealer, u will find that no else makes the battery and it is the highest quality money can buy, stay OEM, as far as the poss theft goes I have no idea if that is true or not. As far as replies go we are not employees of Fixya, we work from home in our spare time, we are SELDOM at the computer all day so please be patient in waiting for responses

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

My 98 accords radio is reading err7 and will not turn on or play or anything


As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

BATTERY WENT DEAD,WHEN CHARGED THE RADIO WONT PLAY AND ANTENAE DID NOT GO UP..THREE LETTERS CAME UP ON RADIO FORGOT TO MENTION 2001 DAWOO LAGANZA CDX


Check your paper work for an Area Frequency Code and 4 digit security code.

If your radio says "COdE" use the "preset buttons" as "numbers" and put the security code in, one number at a time. If it is the right number it will flash 3 times. If not try again.

the stereo may have connection with your anti theft device, drive your car to the dealer and they can reset the device for you at a minimal charge. this should resolve these issues. Good luck

You should be able to enter the 4 digit code via the radio2_bing.gif. If the radio has been replaced, you may need to recover the radio's serial number: Porsche Boxster: Online Lost Radio Code Recovery Tool

Battery replaced on 2001 grand dodge caravan now radio dont work


U will need to enter the radio anti theft code, this lock out was triggered by the loss of voltage to the radio during the battery change, this code is unique to each radio and cam in the owners information packet when the cat was sold new.
