evening all
i had the battery disconnected last night for about 1.5 hrs and when i reconnected it everything started working ok .I was on the understanding that the security code had to be put into the radioto make it work properly but no problems its working fine
does this mean that the radio can be removed and work when reconnected or is there something attached to the radio

My GUII doesn't have security on the radio.

Generally if it has security as soon as you disconnect the radio from the power you have to re enter it to use the radio. This stops those who need our gear more than us from stealing it, well it makes it a little more difficult.

What does happen with the 3.00 litre ZD 30 is that the ECU (Computer) resets itself to default settings and then relearns about your driving behaviour all over again. Thats not necessarily a bad thing as you may have moderated your leadfottedness since the fuel went up so the computer learns from a more economical driver. (You never know it could work)

Again I am prepared to be educated , where did you find out about the computer being a device that can learn driving habits ?

Basically told by a Nissan dealer who said that the ECU was "Adaptive" and had the ability to adapt some settings to suit the driving behaviour of the operator.

Lord knows whether it's a fact or not.

sounds like a nice way of explaining something he didn't understand.

Could be a good catch all.

ECU education:

right foot is down hard - driver wants more gas
oh - he's lifted his foot - driver don't want gas no more

I had the same experience last night. Removed battery terminals for cleaning
(basic maintenance). Reconnected - the radio worked. ??
This is a Clarion in the 4.2 Patrol.
Now that radios/CDs have removable faces (DCP -detachable control panel)
the theory is it has replaced the need for security codes.
The manual states 'We recommend taking the DCP with you when leaving the car'.
- and that is likely to happen when palm trees grow again in Antartica.
The unit in our old BJ42 Tojo did need a code - but didn't have DCP.
