It works fine. Just make sure the 9 v battery is good, that it's just to maintain the computer's memory. Disconnect memory saver as soon as the new battery is in place.

How I change the battery

What is year--make--model? You can't get the battery in or out? Also, with some vehicles, you may be ahead to use a memory saver that plugs into cigar lighter or power outlet, to help keep some memory systems alive if you have to disconnect battery.

Some systems if they lose memory it can cause problems.

How do I keep from losing "memory" when changing battery?

Go to any auto perts store and buy a "memory saving" gadget. It uses a 9 volt battery and it plugs into your lighter socket. The manufacturer claims it will maintain your radio memory and anything that uses your battery. Of course, this is for when your battery goes down or in case you disconect your battery. If your battery is good, then your problem lies with the electronics in the car, probably the on board diagnostic computer.

1997 buick park ave ultra After I replace the battery, do I need to do anything to reset the electronics?

Usually when you replace the battery, you lose the memory settings on your radio, power seat memory and any other accessory memory settings. The engine might also have to go through an idle relearn process. The engine might run erratically until this process is completed. One way to avoid this problem is to install a memory saver, available at most parts stores and are relatively inexpensive. They come in two types. One uses an electrical outlet and the other one uses a square 9 volt battery. It plugs into the cigarette lighter or 12 volt adapter. Install the memory saver and leave it plugged in until you are done installing the battery. If you use one of these, then you do not need to reset anything. If you don't then you might need to reset your accessory memory functions and have unstable engine operation until the idle relearn is completed. Although the computer will correct the problem on its own by driving it, you can speed up this process by performing a manual idle relearn procedure.
1. Start the engine and allow it to run in park position with all the accessories off for one minute.
2. Put the transmission in drive with all accessories off and let it idle for one minute.
3. Put the transmission back into park and turn all of your accessories on for one minute.
4. Put transmission into drive with all accessories on for one minute.

If I replace my own battery in a 2006 Honda Accord. Is there any programming that gets lost and needs to be redone?

Get a memory saver from walmart for a few dollars or so. It plugs into the cigarette lighter and will prevent memory loss from changing the battery which will otherwise erase the radio codes and render the radio disabled for anti-theft reasons.

If your battery does die, and goes below a certain voltage, then go to the website and look under the 'owner's' section and follow the procedure for entering the radio code after you have supplied the website with the information from the owner of the vehicle.

Good luck on changing your battery without losing electronic device memory.

I replaced my battery on a 2005 chevy suburban.Everything works fine,but my Electronic climate control.When the A/c is on,it only blows out the defrost vents only.Could it be a blown fuse or circuit...

you most likely will have to have vehicle connected to a scanner and a recenter procedure performed on the blend door actuators it sounds as if you did not connect a memory saver before replacing battery and the computer has lost it,s logic before unhooking battery on anything newer than 01 in our shop we put a memory saver in the ciggarette lighter it only has a 9 volt battery but this prevents things like that from happening don,t have to reset clock,radio presets memory on seats and so on

Can I change the battery in my 2005 BMW Z4

Yes. But before removing battery terminal get a memory saver that either plugs in at the power source outlet or the type that plugs into the OBD ii communication port. This will leave voltage power for the computor and accessories that have memory. Like the radio and if the car has memory power seats. And if the factory stereo has a Anti-Theft feature it won't get triggered from a power loss.
