Yes this happens when power is disrupted to the radio as part of the anti-theft part. But unfortunately we are no longer given this info to hand out as it is a security issue but I can tell you what the procedure is so you can get it. You will need to take all this info directly to your closest dealer as this is usually a fee service. vehicle's make, model, production date and serial number. All this info is usually on the inside driver's door opening. Then you will also need the radio unit's serial number [ You will have to remove it because it will be on a sticker on the chassis of the unit] Usually people keep the code in the owner's manual for this type of situation so once you get the code keep it in a safe place. The only other thing I can do for you is send you a link to a sight that may help you but they do charge a small fee . So don't shoot the messenger and hope you understand we don't make the rules.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
