My battery went out when it snowed and when i tried to get a jump it knock the radio out and now all it says it code it there a code for the radio or is it fried
I suspect that when you jumped it, the leads were perhaps reversed momentairly by accident and the theft deterrant chip in the radio got wiped. That chip holds the information necessary to instruct your radio how to operate, and if say some thief stole your radio that chip would erase itself after being away from the battery for 30 minutes. I suspect that your battery may have completely gone flat and the radio chip erased itself, if the reversal did not happen. That chip can be reprogrammed, but it has to be done by the dealer, as they are the only ones who are supposed to have the equipment to program the chip. It cost 25-50 bucks to have it done.
If you have to replace your battery, connect a nine volt battery between the battery connectors if the battery replacement is going to take longer than 30 minutes. This will hold the memory in your computer as well as the radio.
