Radio wont work after fitting new battery

I recently had my battery replaced and now my radio wont work. I've checked where all the fuses are but there isn't one labelled 'Radio'. Is it under the dash behind the radio itself and if it is how do i remove the headunit?

Have you entered the security code; you need to every time you disconnect the battery.

Re: Radio wont work after fitting new battery

check that you havent left a wire off near the battery first, if its coming on then cutting out u need to enter the code

Thumbs up Sweet Sound Of Music

After 18 months without any sounds it didn't dawn on me to re-enter the security code even though I thought there wasn't any power going to the unit. Thanks guys!!!

lol

Ever since I posted this message even my own mates are giving me a bloody hard time. I know it's a little silly of me to forget about the security code for 18 months or so but my excuse is that I was way too busy concentrating on my studies. This is gonna make you's laugh even more, I've just graduated with a Diploma In Business Computing. So yes I do know how to turn the computer on but those car radios mate, they've got me stumped. HAHAHA
