Answers :

On some vehicles, once you take off the battery, the radio fails to function. You need to program the radio. The dealer should have given you a radio code for your car to program your radio or take the car to your dealer to have this corrected that is if it was in working condition prior to removing the battery. This is a security measure that in the event the radio is stolen, it's unserviceable.
