    Should reset itself after your replace with new fuse and turn the ignition again.
    If not try discconecting the battery but be sure you have the code for your radio before you do this.

    So you checked the symbol in the manual then?
    If the battery is old you could try a new battery to see if it clears it up.
    If not you might need to replace the alternator in the car which is probably a garage job unless your handy with cars.

    its happened before. everytime i take the cd player out. the dashboard battery meter goes out and the warning light comes on. last time a garage said they checked everything was working,replaced a fuse and reset the computer and it was sorted. i think i must have a loose wire behind the cd player. thanks for your help!!!:icon_thumright:
