Wait 1 hour message will not cancel.

Hi, Having foolishly disabled the code & re-entered the incorrect code 3 times on my car radio, the "wait 1 hour" message appeared & whatever I try, I cannot cancel the message. After waiting far longer than the req'd period, (with radio switched ON) the message is still there. I have even disconnected the radio's supply for some time, but to no avail. The radio is a Blaupunkt, Dublin C30 & model/serial numbers are :-BP120Y1677175 & 7-640-120-510 IF anyone can help, I may be saved from the men in white coats. Thanks in advance. 1chab0d Hi, I have exacly the same problem. The radio is a Blaupunkt, Dublin C30.

How do i reset my becker juke box radio be2233 from wait to code?


You must leave the radio turned on and most importantly the key must be in the ignition turned to the first point that turns acessories on.

You may have to wait for up to 2 hours before the radio returns to code and the power must not be interrupted during this time or the wait period will start all over again. Obviously make sure your car is in a safe place whilst you are waiting as key must be left turned in ignition.

When you get code back on the display you can enter your code as normal. If you do not have the correct code for your radio send your enquiry here and they will sort it out for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My radio still says code I have removed battery

Hi, most security coded radios will display the word "code" or something similar when requesting code entry after power has been removed for some reason. the usual procedure is to simply enter the code at this point following manufacturer procedure.
If you have had more than 3 incorrect attempts at entering the code, the radio may have gone into codelock which locks any further attempts out for a period of time (up to 1 hour). the only cure for this is to leave the radio powered up so it can timeout at which point it may display the word "code" again.
NOTE disconnecting the supply to the radio while it is in this condition only serves to reset the timer and you have to wait even longer.

Wait code still appears

The radio should automatically reset itself providing you leave it SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED  for up to 24 hours.

The important bit is UNDISTURBED because if you touch it, the timing starts all over again.


Also quote the make of car

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number

My vauxhall stereo is stuck on safe mode how do i unblock it i have lost the code

1. turn ignition on (dash warning lights on)
2. If radio turned on, turn it off.
3. Press AS button in, and hold it in while turning radio on.
4. Wait approx 10 seconds (do not release AS button).
5. Radio should beep, and display should now read 10 - - - - (assuming no tries have been made in the past with the wrong code)
6. use pre-set button "1" to scroll the first digit in the display to the number you want (it goes 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 then back to 0)
7. Use pre-set "2" for second digit, etc.
8. Once display reads 10 followed by the four digit security code press and hold AS button for about 10 seconds, until the radio beeps.
9. If correct code entered display will now read "code" briefly, followed by"memory-U" briefly, then radio will reprogram it self.
10. If radio goes back to "safe" the code number is incorrect, or you mis-keyed it.

Note: entering the code incorrectly 10 times will render the radio useless.
After the first 3 tries you need to leave the radio on and the ignition on for increasingly long periods of time before it will let you try again. 7 safe need you to wait at least 30 mins, and more like 1 hour.

WARNING - you only have a max of 10 attempts to get it right, but if still no luck after the 8th attempt, STOP and contact a Vaux dealer.
