My car battery went flat and I had to jump start my car, unfortunately my car radio was switched on at the time and now the display says 'READ' constantly and the radio doesn't display what is on either the i-pod or cd player. How do I rectify this problem?

My bettery went flat on my rover 45 impressions 02 plate now my radio wants a code it just say code wait on the display. can any1 help me plz


Try '0000'. If not, you need to take it to a car audio specialist. I have also read that if you remove the radio and put it in a freezer bag in the freezer for 24 hours, it clears the memory!

Sounds like on your first attempt to jump start the car the positive and negative cables were reversed blowing your main fuse. Your interior lights are usually controlled by a switch next to your speedometer or the dashboard. If the switch does not bring the lights/gauges back then it is possible that something else shorted and the vehicle would need to be taken in for service.

My car wouldnt start, the electrical system starting going crazy (radio going off and on, etc) then when I went back outside to my car the lights were going off and on by themselves. any ideas?


could be a sign that the computer is failing-though they usually are durable--try disconnecting batt a few minutes and see if it clears and chec for any wiring flaws--get vehicle scanned also--reprogramming a computer should be done before buying a new one

One of two things has happened

Because your battery went flat and you then created a short circuit the radio may be locked out and need a start code which should be in your manual

Worse case is that by applying a reverse polarity to the radio you have blown the protection diodes up inside it, if so it is a back to the maker job

Radio not working after jump strart


You need a code to enable your radio. Happens every time the battery is dead or disconnected. Contact a Saturn rep.

I have a car jump starter unit that was left and went dead flat. Now it will not take a charge pluging in the charger?


Unfortunately, a Jump Starting Unit which no longer takes a charge usually means the internal batteries had gone bad. On some charging units, the replacement batteries are available through the manufacturer, but more times than not, it's less expensive to replace the Jump Starting Unit.
