Hi,

I'm brand new to owning an X Trail and to the site, so hello to all who read this.

I have just bought a 2012 X trail (with Sat-Nav, Radio and iPod connectivity) and want to put on a new battery. My question is if I disconnect and change the battery will I need a code to get the radio or sat-nav working. The reason I am asking this is that there is no mention of a code being needed if the power is interrupted in the handbook and no code has been supplied.

I phoned my local Nissan dealer and all they could suggest that they take the radio out to have a look!

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris.

Hello Chris,

Welcome to the Forum. :biggrin:

When you have a minute please complete your profile. This will help any Members know which model and year your X-Trail is if they are responding to any queries. Umbongo has kindly provided the following details of how to fill in your profile... :thumbs:

Good advice from Truck Driver. :thumbs:

Your X-Trail will be a T31, and the radio will be coded. With the T30 you can change the battery without the need of the code - providing you follow the correct procedure - and this should also apply to the T31. You will have to reset the radio presets. Have a look at these posts on the T30, these should be of some help, also the links on the thread will take you to a similar thread on the T31... :thumbs:

I hope this is of some assistance.

Kind regards, John

The simplest way to do it with no worrying about whether the radio is coded or not, it to connect up a 12 volt power supply. Garages do it all the time.
