You understand correctly. >Could this sitting durring the week be causing the Radio to ask for >the code so often? Only if the battery is ready to die. The current drawn by the starter moter might be pulling the voltage below what is necessary to maintain the code in the radio. I once had a digital clock that would reset every time I started the engine, but only in the morning (or some other long period of sitting around). After the engine was warm, it started easily and the clock didn't have a problem. A new battery solved the problem. If that isn't it, you may have a wiring problem: bad ground, a short, or an open circuit. Walt Kienzle 1991 9000T
