Will disconnecting a battery affect the central locking?

I have a ford focus (yr=2000).
I have been told that if I disconnect the battery to replace a reverse switch, the central locking may not work when I reconnect the battery.
Is this true?
I also need to identify the correct revers switch as there appears to be 3 different ones.

Do you
have the same problem?

First, you do not need to remove the battery cable for this repair.

Give the vin number to the parts store and they can identify the correct switch
