Hi!!
Once you enter the right code you have to wait 2 full hours for the radio to come on. If you had entered a wrong code before, the wait can prolong. If you enter the right code, you do not have to do anything else but wait. Entering the wrong code 8 or 10 times will lock the radio for good.
Good Luck!!

You cannot avoid the 2 hour wait. The unit must be constantly powered on for the 2 hours if the power is switched off or the battery disconnected at even 1 hr 59 minutes and 59 seconds the 2 hour wait starts again.
If you enter the wrong code the wait will be even longer next time.
Normally once 10 trys have been made with the wrong code it will not accept anymore goes.

No i think its time for a aftermarket unit ,if its the right code ????and your getting this message then i think the problem is that bright spark has changed the code as they had the right one and changed it to something else so i dont think you have much chance of getting it right ,you could try 1111 or 2222 and so on in case it was a rental vehicle when new and this is whats done to rental vehicles so the cleaners know the codes for when the battery goes flat or a customer has left the lights on.

I need Radio chrysler grand voyager 2000 S/n TQAA355834107


The only one that can unlock these types of security items is the dealer. Now if you are able to put a after market radio in that should fix your problem.

Hey there i have a 1997 BMW 328i and i changed my battery n when i started the car up my radio said code wait andd now i cant get rid of it please help me fix this. thank you ...


Hi chris,

Code wait is part of the built in anti-theft system BMW has for the radio. The ignition must remain in the on position for 1 continuous hour. Usually rush hour traffic does the trick. You will need the radio code to enter into the radio after it displays "CODE". just enter the code according to the buttons listed 1-6. ie if it ask for 13556, just enter the digits in that sequence. Make sure you have the correct code. If 3 unsuccessful consecutive entries are made, you will have to wait another hour.

Chrysler Voyager 2003 battery went dead now radio won't even turn on, clock doesn't work


i assume you put a new battery in,van runs but no radio or clock, check all your fuses first,and also make sure that radio doesnt have anti theft system, if it does then read your manualy on how to enter the code,if it needs a code then it wont work until code is entered,careful if you do the code entering wrong three times then radio shuts down for one hour, then you would need to have the key on or van running for one hour straight,

Hi my battery whet dead n the mrs put in the wrong code 3 times now the radio says wait 2hrs that was 3 week ago and the lights under the radio flash consantly pls can you help me thanks.......gary


Hi Gary

Ther power will need to be on for 2hrs, that is the radio will need to be turned on for 2 hours with the ignition on. If you have done this already then the radio will need re-coding, this sometimes happens. You dont have to go to a dealer there is independant decoders around. let me know if you cant find pne.

I have a pontiac grand prix 97 that my brother sold to me. The radio has the "anti theft" lock on it, and I don't know the code to unlock it. I googled it and got the 6 numbers you need "392401" but now...


icon1.gif GM radio unlock procedures If you've ever had to disconnect the battery, or locked your stock GM radio by some other means and don't have the unlock code - here's what you need to do to get it unlocked. Sorry I don't have any photos, but if you can't find the radio - or any of the buttons...I'm not sure any amount of pictures would help you. biggrin.gif

Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down, press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 (this is a dealer code - you can use one of the others below, too) followed by the # key, then enter the numbers that you wrote down, followed by the * key.
The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this number into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual.

Note: If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio.

If you don't have an owners manual, then press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button.
Repeat step #5 twice in a row it will disable the Theftlock and you will see "---". You will then be able to change to a new lock code.

IMPORTANT - Other dealer codes: 139010, 206053 and 620529 - these may be inactive by now; GM will remove them from time to time if they feel that they are "compromised".

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Vw golf .... alpha...... safe 2


"2 safe" means that your radio was in safe mode, and then the code was improperly entered 2 times. you either need to disconnect your battery and leave it for up to 4 hours (i've been told), or leave your key in the ignition for around an hour.

once it comes out of "2 safe" mode, then it will just say SAFE and give you the numbers 1-0-0-0. You just need to enter the 4 digit code (using your pre-set numbers 1-2-3-4 to change the numbers), then hold the seek > button and your radio should come on.

If you don't have the code, call VW. they'll find your code for free. they did for me. if not they'll charge like $50 or something.
