    I am from Harrow, Middlesex and I own a 2006 Accord Type-S Saloon since from July 2010.

    As a avid internet user, I just can't believe this website has slipped through the net all this time! No concern now that I am a Member ... :vtec:

    Absolutley love my car however my car battery is giving my problems of late. Have decided to change the battery but I read elsewhere on the web that I have to wait 1 hour before reconnecting my new battery so that the ECU does not reboot!!?:Wassat: Can any Member shed any more light on this matter - it would of great help.

    I have also read from a previous post on this website forum that will not need to re-enter my Sat Nav code... is this tried and tested?

    Thanks you in advance for your assistance.

    Hi Jake Welcome to AOC

    An hour for the ECU to reboot that a first. ECU do have NVRAM which is volatile memory power loss nornally means data loss in a couple of seconds.

    There is no code on the 7th Generation for sat nav or radio and yes it is tried and tested procedure.

    Hi Jake, Welcome to AOC.

    That's the first time I've heard of the one hour things as well and I've owned 7th gens for a good few years now.
    As CJ says nothing to worry about when swapping out the battery on the the 7th gens.

    Hi Jake and welcome. I have to agree with those above who say there's no problem in disconnecting then reconnecting the battery in your own time - I've done this several times!
