no it won't harm the radio because the radio gets its power from the battery.
only if u remove her then u must enter the radio code (as long as u have that setting in your radio...)

the idea isn't that bad, but it's kinda weird to take your ecu with u all day long?

maybe if you connect a hidden switch between the lines that guide towards the ecu, that will be more effective

if that concerns you install a momentary switch in a hidden location...it should splice in line with the starters power if you want to start the car you must press and hold the button while turning the key...if you dont press the button nothing. not even if they splice the power and the ignition, no starter. even better get an alarm with an engine disabler. any questions on how to do this in detail give an email. I have a million ways to make your car a pain in the *** to steal.
