By changing the battery, you erased your car's computer presets. Your car probably has an anti-theft radio, that locks when power is lost to it, and requires a factory security code to unlock it. The code might be in a section of the owner's manual, but if you cannot find it, you have to go to a new car dealership and have them reset the radio.
I meant to ask was the radio unlock code, after battery change
It will delete the pre-programmed radio stations.
It is a complicated process to reset the radio in your Hyundai Sonata after changing the car battery. First you must have the access key. Enter the access key at the prompt and follow the instructions that will be shown on your radio screen.
I had to go to a dealership to get the radio unlocked, also the cause; ( radio locked) was Battery Failure. After I puchased a new battery I found the radio use to be locked.
You probably need a code to enter into the radio presets as it is a security radio. Without the code it will not function.
It means the radio is locked. You will have to insert the code to unlock the radio. You must have disconnected the battery or the battery ran down.
No. The only thing would be the clock and radio.

Radio presets and the clock.
Check your fuse panel for a blown radio fuse.
you will have to pull your radio out of the dash to be able to look at the model number and/or serial number of your radio. Call a local Pontiac dealer and they can give you a code to enter when you turn your radio on after changing your battery.

How can I have a radio code for my car E200 (Year 2000)? I need it after changing the car battery!
its a security feature and you will need the radio code to unlock it.
To unlock a radio you must input the radio code. This is done using the preset radio station buttons on the face of the radio. Contact your dealer for more info on your radio code if you don't have it.
There is nothing to reset except the radio presets and the clock unless it has an antitheft radio. In that case you must insert the code for the radio.
Go to the parts store and get usually a 9 volt adapter that plugs into the cigarette lighter and keeps voltage to the radio while battery is replaced.
The only thing you will have to reset is the clock and the radio presets.
There is nothing to reset except the radio presets and the clock.

You have to take it to the a Chevy dealer to unlock with a code. For 15 or so dollars he will remove the code so this will no longer be a problem.
There is nothing to reset except the radio station presets and possibly radio code if the radio has a theft deterrent feature. Nothing else for you to do.

whats number do i put in to unlock radio is it security code or radio code to unlock radio?
This just happened to me today- connect the battery, put your key in the drivers side door, lock then unlock. That's it.
The only way to unlock it is to go to the dealer and let them put it on the computer to get the code.
you can cut wire of battery for 2 hours. then you fix it and enter your correct code.
Check relevant fuses for RADIO (there are about 4 of them) to ensure they are properly seated. This assumes Radio worked before batt change. Replace any bad fuse.
Yes. If you disconnect the battery from the vehicle what happens is that the anti theft system on the radio thinks the the radio is being stolen because it loses power. What you have to do is enter a code that is provided to you by the dealership. If they don't have the code on record then the dealer has to remove the radio to find out the code.
When changing a battery for your BMW Z3 M roadster 2000 do you need to hook the car to another power source ie a battery jumper pack so as not to have to re-set all warning lights?

on a European model pt cruiser (USA domestic pt cruisers do not have this) if the radio loses power it goes into a security mode which requires a code to unlock and resume normal function. this is intended as a theft deterrent as the thief would not have the code your local dealer should be able to supply the code as needed though they may be a small charge for this
What could be wrong with a Delco factory radio from a 1994 Jimmy that stopped working when the battery went dead?
The anti theft device in the radio locked it up. You will have to take back to dealer or garage that has a obd2 scan tool to unlock the radio.
When the radio is removed or the power supply is interupted, (such as the battery is removed) The radio code will have to be reset. This code should come with the paperwork you got when you purchaced the car. If not, The MB dealer can get it for you. Be prepared to prove you own the vehicle
The unlock code for the radio is different for every radio. You will need to find the serial number on the radio and call the dealer for the unlock code.
