"radio code" after instantaneous battery swap - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
The old battery is not real bad - it is being moved to the Saab 900, which won't see much use until Spring.
I just wanted this '04 Aero to be winter-proof and so, a brand new NAPA battery. From the point the leads on the old Interstate came off, until the NAPA had the leads attached to it, I would say 90 seconds. 90, maybe 100 seconds.
I was expecting as usual to lose Date/Time and so forth. But (and this is the factory original radio) I get the dreaded "Radio Code".
I've never heard of a 9-5 radio becoming estranged this fast. Anyone?
Is it possible I've made too little use of this car in the last year and let the battery get a little too discharged, too often? And yet, the radio was working fine just before the swap was done.
Thanks for your insight!
