because the battery died the antitheft code for the radio activated . You will have to r-enter the code for the radio to work. If thee is no power to the radio check the fuses for the ignition as the power will come from the accessories side of the switch. Reset the CPU program in the ECM by using a fault scanner.
You have to go to the dealer with your registration and they will give you the code for your radio but you will need a good battery you will need to leave your key on the acc side and wait for 15 min then put your code in
It's possible that the starter is bad but don't think it would cause the car to die or just stop running. You say in a parking lot, did you shut it off and then tried starting it? and no start? if so check the starter !!!
If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.
I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.
When it comes to independent auto shops, its tough to get them to take responsibility if they did something wrong, thats why most people with a car as nice as your wouldnt trust it to just any shop. Theres nothing in a timing belt job that would cause the radio to stop working, unless some connector is loose or a bad ground somewhere. There are 3 fuses you may want to check... Radio No. 1 20A, Radio No 2 7.5A, Dome 7.5A. These all send power to the radio's circuit. If all 3 are good, It would have to be an internal problem in the radio.
i shoul not afect any thing unless you replace the batterie with the car runing, and some radios have antitheft code if batterie die or disconect the radio will ask you to type a code in order to work again but most of times it display the worl code on the digital screen
If it's any consolation, I don't think the problem is anything that you
might have done. Probably the radio just decided that today was a
good day to die and you just happen to be there at the time. The
only thing I can think of just off the cuff is to remove the radio fuse
(both of them) for about 5 minutes to reset the radio back to
factory. Might help. The only snag in that is the
possiblility that there is a security code that you would have to enter
to get the radio to work after removing all power. You might talk
to the dealer about the security code before you actually try
this. Make sure that he can get you up and running again with a
factory code after the fact. Sorry to hear about your
problem. Seems cars have a way of knowing when their owners are
not driving them and they save all their glitches for just that
time. I had borrowed my wife's father's van one time when it
decided the time was right for the transmission to go out. (lucky
me, huh?) Good luck.
