My battery died so I jumped it and just had to reenter the code, after I took it out and got a new one a few hours later replaced it the screen did not come on at all
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok open the hood and on the positive battery cable make sure you have the single battery wire that lays across the battery this is the cable that supplies power the system this is a very common issue when the battery is just replaced.

speaking from experience, had this happen to be when these came out

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not sure I understand. One is connected to a fuse and the other is not but it looks like they are both single wires. The battery's pos and neg ports are different sizes and don't allow for crossing wires
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The wire that lady's across the entire battery is connected to the positive
