You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery or dead battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzz kill I know. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio, which will also bring your whole car back to life.

\012If your battery is officially dead, start by replacing it. Some vehicles will not jump start if the battery is completely gone, as with a dead short internally. You may still have to get Dealer assistance to clear the Theft system code.
