No, it is not necessary to recode.

If equipped with smart key, after installation of the battery, you need to wait at least 10 seconds or more before attempting to start and it could be difficult to start at this time.

What happens when you try to start it? Im not sure what is meant by coding? Reprogramming? I dont think thats needed. Unless a new ecm was installed?
