You cannot change the battery without using the special preset saver tool, if you attempt to do so the body control computer's memory gets fouled up and then you have to go to the dealer and have the system reflashed to bring all of the vehicles accessories back up and operating. This all started in 05, there should be a warning in the owners manual about changing the battery. Every tool box should have at least this cheap version. See pic.

I find out why... They change the passenger side fender and disconnect the ground on the fender.. that ground feed to the entire car. I got it on and start working like they should.

Wonderful, at least the main processors still had power as they are on thier own circuits so you didn't loose programming. Wonder why they missed that, they must have some poor quality control.
