You will have to look in the onwers manual for a card that should be in there. there will be codes that you will enter to start your radio again.If its not there you will have to call the dealership.

How do you reset the monitors for the evap and oxygen on a 2008 cobalt

You need a scan tool, or you can disconnect your battery, but disconnecting your battery can lock your stereo if it is the factory stereo. If you don't have the code to your stereo, a $50.00 scan tool at AutoZone is cheaper than paying the dealer to unlock your stereo.

Last night I noticed the stereo was not illuminated and would not turn on. Today the car is completely dead, no power locks, no clicks on ignition. original stereo (not aftermarket) and this is first...

How old is the batttery? Most car batteries only last 4-5 years. I would check the date on the battery, and if it is around that old replace the battery first. If the battery voltage ever drops below 9 volts the computers can get a bit screwy.

    Our vehicles battery went dead so we just replaced the battery on our 2003 ford escape and now the radio, power locks, and clock do not work. What should I check?

    If the stereo is a factory stereo,you need to call Ford dealer to get the unlock code,this is common with many different makes.As far as the rest,when a battery is replaced,different makes have certain methods required to "reset" the systems.I do not know why they do it.Is it really going to deter theft,you know what I mean?Anyhow,ask the dealer if that applies to your vehicle too,a reset.Tell them you replaced the battery and all the rest what you told me.
    Good luck! Greg
