GO TO YOUR BATTERY AND BEFORE YOU DO REMOVE THE TERMINALS,USE A MEMORY SAVER ON JUST TO PROTECT THE RADIO CODE,IF YOU DO NOT HAVE IT NOT TO STAY WITHOUT RADIO BECAUSE LATER YOU NEED CODE TO PUT IT IN ORDER, THEN PROCEED ON REMOVING ONE BY ONE THE TERMINALS AND BY USING A BRASH OR SAND PAPER,CLEAN BOTH SURFACES ON NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE TERMINALS FOR GOOD CONTACT. USE ALSO A BATTERY TERMINALS GREASE FOR PROTECTION.
