Default Replacing Battery in '95 Camry - Anti-Theft prfecautions?

How hard is it to replace the battery in the LE four with
radio and vehicle anti-theft systems? How long without power
until the alarms lose memory and reset? Can I run power through
the lighter socket (ignition on) safely to keep the system
powered, or can I use a battery charger connected to the cables
as I remove them?

I would think reset everything and take your time to clean the cables of
corosion and grease the terminals. Ive has many times thought my battery
was bad but it was only corrosion buildup on the cables-terminals, but
just looking at it, it looked clean, It happened to me just last week it
would not charge. Did you check the water in the battery, some "
maintenace Free" need water once in a while.

Do not run a battery charger to the cables without the battery
connected! check the lighter socket for power even with the key off, you
can safely run *battery* power there. There is a tool for that purpose
that uses a 9v battery connected to a light plug, it wouldnt last long
with the key on I would suspect because of all the accessories being
on. I have no idea what happens to the Camry alarm with the battery
disconnected, I would guess nothing though.

===============
Write down your radio presets, then just change the battery.
When you reconnect the terminals and the alarm begins sounding, just
turn it off with the remote.

If you do not know the 4 digit code you or a PO set in the radio - you must
keep power to it. I speak from experience as I though I knew the code -
changed battery - now after like 5 attempts radio says HELP!

Do you have another car?? Hook jumper cables up.
(-) to body ground Hook the (+) to the starter.
Remove battery,clean cables Hook up new battery
disconnect cables

That's probably the best idea I've seen. Thanks.

I have a 2001 4 cyl camry. It has aftermarket power remote door locks
installed by Toyota Gulf South, the importer. There is a red light that
blinks when their locked. If I change the battery will I have a problem with
the radio or the door locks? I don't see any other security system and I see
no way to enter a code to the radio.
