IT is possible that the battery removal will affect the CPU program which controls the immobiliser as some times the power surge on reconnection causes this. Useing a scanner to reset the CPU program should fix the problems

Your radio will have to be removed and sent out for repair. The repair shop will remove cds and send them back to the shop that sent the radio in for repair. I recomend taking it in to the dealer because they deal with these issues commonly and are well equiped to handle the problem. They will remove your radio, send it in and in short order you'll have a reconditioned radio installed in a day or two. Your cds will be waiting for you when you pick your vehicle up. Cost is around 350.00
I had the same problem with my car (regarding the radio code) Well buddy, unfortunately each car radio has a different code, and in order to get the code, you must first remove the center console where you shifter is. There are 4 clips that hold that console in place ( 2 located on each side of the console) Your gonna have to remove the console then take a peak under the radio, you should be able to see a serial number located at the bottom of the radio itself, no need to remove it either cause it's a pain in the ***!!! Write down the number, and call a local Acura dealer with the serial number and "POLITELY" ask for the radio code. Some dealers might be reluctant to give you the code, so if you hit a bump in the road, just keep calling other dealers til you get someone who'll gladly give you the code!!!
I have a 2001 focus ..radio suddenly stopped playing after being at garage. I thought that the battery was disconnected and the radio neede reset code, as it has a rad blinking dash anti-theft light. i went to ford garage and they told me they don't have reset codes on the focus. Is this true?
All you'll have to do is call them. The dealer should be able to tell you over the phone what the code is. I had one like this at my shop and all I did was call the dealer and I was told the code over the phone.
