Battery Change Disable Lock?

I read before changing the battery on the G6 you must disable the lock system on the radio or the system will be locked after installing new battery.

Is this infact true and if so how do I go about disabling this?

I changed out my battery with no issues. The programming is written into the BCM.
Power loss does not rewrite the program.

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

I always end up answering my own questions!! But maybe it will help someone else...

Computer Memory Saver aka cigarette lighter adapter wired to a 9v battery plug. Retains all radio, computer functions, etc.. while you change your battery!

Good thing I have the plugs laying around and can make this gadget myself.

Total savings = $10
