The 3v lithium battery on my old PC kept the cmos good for 3 years. Still, I think I'll be paying for more than the radio fuse as the engine won't start now. The dashboard looks good but pressing the start button does nothing. The system seems to think the engine is on as it won't let the key out until I press the button to stop the engine. My wife thinks it's funny as her old Corsa can be bump-started when the battery is flat, but this new expensive modern car requires open heart surgery.
