Disconnect Battery?

I read in this thread where there is no need to disconnect the Battery if you pull Fuses #7 & #41 of the Radio, which I plan to do before installing USA-Spec.

I posted the question of whether or not to "disconnect Battery" to Crutchfield & here is the answer I got:


My name is Steve and I will be assisting you today. Although disconnecting the battery whenever making changes to your system is always a good thing, it is not required in the installation of the USA Spec iPod interface.

Thanks for the email.

Any comments?

Anyone try not pulling Fuses or disconnecting Battery & then went ahead & just installed the USA-Spec? Everything go okay?

Can't wait to get this ordered & in my car, radio sucks around here & I'm tired of dealing with CD's.
