Sounds like you have a "theftlock" radio. With theftlock any time power to the radio is lost the radio locks and can only be unlocked with the security code. Unless you disabled that feature, again using the code, before you changed the battery. HTH. -Jim

I'd stop by your local Buick Dealer. They can go into the radio and retrieve the code. There are some GM forums out there that talk about a generic code to unlock these radios but I've never tried it. HTH. -Jim
