Most likely, when you disconnected the battery, it shut these things down as an anti theft feature. You will need to call a dealership to find where the code is located and how to enter it.

2004 acura tl will not start lights and air works all i hear is a clicking sound when i turn the ignition

Of course the first thing to do is have the battery tested, but that doesn't seem to be at fault here, if the lights and the AC blower work, but it still must be checked. I think the real problem here is a detective starter motor Solenoid, this is the large high current solenoid that is bolted to the starter, it is the click you hear, the click means the solenoid is operating but the reason that the starter doesn't crank the engine is that the heavy electrical contacts that send power to the starter DC motor are burnt and not allowing current to follow, this is a common problem in Japanese designed starter motors no matter which car they are in they are all made by one company, and that is Denso Electric. Most shops will not change just the starter solenoid, they want to replace the starter assembly, the reason being they feel they can't guarantee the job if the whole Assembly isn't replaced, this is especially true on high miles cars and trucks. This is about a 2 hour job.
Here is the job procedure from the manual:

Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, and the navigation system, then write down the radio channel presets. Make sure the ignition switch is OFF.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Remove the left side engine compartment cover.
  3. Disconnect the negative cable and positive cable.
  4. Remove the battery hold-down bracket, then remove the battery and battery tray.
  5. Remove the harness clamp.
  6. Disconnect the starter cable from the B terminal, then disconnect the BLK/WHT wire from the S terminal.
  7. Remove the two bolts holding the starter, then remove the starter.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Tighten the starter bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm).
  2. Make sure the crimped side of the ring terminal is facing out.
  3. Connect the battery positive cable to the battery first, then connect the negative cable.
  4. Start the engine to make sure the starter works properly.
  5. Enter the anti-theft codes for the radio and the navigation system, then enter the customer's radio channel presets.

I had a starter relay problem on my 2001 Eclipse. Now my factory radio wont work. It asked for a code and I typed in a few random #'s and now it says OFF and wont work now. Do you know how I can fix this?

That's a bummer. The factory radio has a anti-thief device that keeps the radio from working if the wrong code is put in too many times. When this happens, the radio is on lock-down. No more codes can be entered.

Only the dealer right now can only unlock the radio for you. They can get the correct code by the serial number on the radio. But, you still need them to remove the lock-down in place.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?

This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

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.
