    New Member Introductions
    Ok, My battery Died. Put a new one in and my head unit/nave will not come back on. Stealership says unit died due to bad battery install. Now says it will cost me 3200.00 to replace. Just checking to see if this is true with these units, and can I just install an aftermarket unit instead.
