My OE Radio or NAV system  just bricked. "asks for a secret code" (only on very new cars, I put this here, due to the vast numbers of questions, on all forums)

Newer cars, also have many learn modes, that must relearn things, after a battery pull.  (or dead).  Transmission learns your car and how you drive,  Throttle body learn and idle speed calibrate and learn. Steering learn.
