Re: Reset radio system
You need to get the code from the dealer. Actyually, in your case you might have to go into the dealership for them to re-set it. If you have the 6 digits on your stereo you can enter it yourself. Hhe dealer shuold be able to find you code based on the VIN. They might charge a modest admin fee, but most large dealershipw will do it for free. Oh... you might also have to show proof of ownership D/L and car registration/insurance (with VIN) usually works.

I have reset computers on my vehicles by removing the battery terminal, and then contacting the two terminals together for a few seconds - away form the battery. This should take any residual charge from the car system, and computer.
Wait a couple of minutes, then re-connect the terminals to the battery. Usually this loses the stored stations on your radio, so have the security codes ready to reset your radio.
Hope this helps you.
If by resetting anti theft system you are referring to the radio code, the dealer can usually look it up by the Von number. If not the radio must be removed to read the serial number on the top of the unit itself. The dealer will look up the code by that number.
When you disconnect/replace a car battery, your radio anti-theft security system will be triggered: consult your car user manual on how to reset the anti-theft security for your particular radio/audio system: you will need to enter a specific 'security code' that should have been provided when your car or car audio system was bought.
If the radio will not except the codes because radio codes was attempted to many times, you can reset the radio by disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds and the radio will reset it self for you to re-enter the radio code. Good luck and keep me posted.
Just make sure your radio is turned off before removing the battery. If the radio is on and the battery is removed and replaced, the radio may get locked out. This will prompt you to enter and reset code to your radio to have it work again. Good luck and after you battery has been replaced, just reset the radio stations setting and time.
To replace the starter you need to;
) Note if you have an anti-thief system and now to reset it if the battery is disconnected.
) Note the radio station selections if they are not saved if the battery is disconnected.
) Disconnected the GROUND connector on the battery.
) Disconnect the electrical cable on the battery.
) Remove the 2 bolts holding the starter on. Remove the harder one to reach first.
) Pull the old starter out.
) Insert the new starter. ) Replace the bolt. Insert the easier bolt first.
) Tighten the bolts.
) Replace the electrical cable.
) Reconnect the GROUND connector on the battery.
) Reset any radio, clock or anti-thief systems.
) Return old starter for a core charge refund.
