If key was in igintion when you disconnected battery,you may have damaged the key,if you done this,you may need new key,or hopefully have a spare one.


How long do I leave the key in the ON position before I replace the POSITIVE battery cable?? Is there a certain length of time for it to be able to reset itself??
