I was told that if you disconnect the battery in a JK (it's a 2014), that the radio will require a code before it will function. Any truth to this?

Not sure if there's a internal battery that looses power eventully but I've had the battery disconnected for a few hours with no ill effects.

If you remove the radio and put it in another JK or compatible vehicle, you would then need a code.

Over night no issues, It's when the radio sees a different vehicle computer (or vise versa) the code is needed

Awesome info, thanks guys. This is my better half's ride that she bought new. I wouldn't want to kill her tunes.

Is the code available from the dealer?
