My 85 yr old aunt called last night. Her battery went dead, she had it charged and took it and had a new battery installed. Her presets were all erased, and her fuel gauge no longer works. I explained how Keep Alive Memory works if external battery is used, but she also says this problem with the fuel gauge happened last time she had a battery issue, and a local shop charged her $80 to fix the fuel gauge problem.
My question, is there a fuse or an issue with the fuel gauge when the battery dies. Common sense tells me she got ripped off the first time. She lives in Wisconsin and I am 200 miles south.
