    The battery in the brides LR3 went dead from me leaving the key on overnight during a wheel bearing change, she called from work that all of her settings have gone poof! So other than normal user stuff are there any settings or gotchas I need to take care of?

    The LR3 started and ran fine after some battery charger therapy, no warning lights or indications, no CEL's, etc.

    I think just clock and maybe radio presets.

    I am pretty sure my radio presets stick around after a battery disconnect - maybe it depends how long it was dead? Are all your saved GPS settings there? Like home address, etc?

    When I changed my battery the only thing I recall needing reset was the clock. Radio presets remained but when you first turn it on it will not go back to the last station it was on - it will go to 87.9 and most likely be static. The mpg/trip counter settings were erased...

    As it turned out everything was fine, even radio and clock. I guess it wasn't all the way dead.
