When I change the battery. The radio ask for some code or password ***** the climate control works but not the a/c. Thanks.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
ok, if you give me your vin i can get you the radio code, do not push any buttons until i get you the code or you will lock the radio out, and on the ac see if the EC button is red, if it is push it and see if it goes off, EC means economy and will not let the compressor work, so try that, also just to make sure, it does blow air through the vents yes?? just not cold air?
