Question about Blaupunkt Car Audio Receivers

1 Answer

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

Code wait, what doing

When you have WAIT showing on the display this means the radio has been asking for a code and too many incorrect code entries have been made. The radio is locked down because of this. This happens when the power has been lost to the radio and it needs a code to reactivate it.

When WAIT is on the display you must leave the radio turned on under constant power with the key in the ignition turned to accessories position on until the display turns to CODE or shows ----. You must leave the radio on for up to four hours with the power uninterrupted. The waiting period depends on how many incorrect codes have been entered.

The power to the radio must remain uninterrupted or the WAIT period will start all over again hence the reason why the key must be turned in the ignition to Accessories I

Once you have CODE or ---- back on the display you need to enter the correct code to reactivate it. If you do not have the correct code I suggest you go here and purchase the code from this website which is one of the few sites I know that can decode Becker radios online.

You need to send them the serial number of the radio and they will email the code back to you.

Hope it helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Your radio will require one of the following procedures.

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

The code is KCAR BUT its how you use the code whether it works or not the first thing you have to do is have a remote-Will not work without remote,....Turn on unit and the screen will come up for password..using remote press 5 two times,wait 2 seconds and press enter,NOT track up press 2 three times wait 2 seconds press enter,press 2 One time wait 2 seconds then enter and finally press 7 two times and press enter! your screen will be unlocked if you did it right,If you have to try again turn off and then back on.AGAIN

to reset password
using your remote enter your code.

Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.

Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

How do i enter the code in a 98 polo radio?


Once you have the unlock code, then turn on the radio. You should see SAFE displayed. After about 3 secs, "0001" should appear. Use the station preset buttons 1 thru 4. Preset 1 changes the first digit of the code, and preset 2 changes the second digit, etc. Enter all 4 digits of the code. After code is entered, press right side of "Seek" button for about 2 seconds, until an audible signal is heard. If you hose up and get the wrong code...will go back to SAFE displayed. You will get another chance to enter the code. After 2 failed attempts, you have to wait 1 hour again for it to unlock. So carefully enter the correct code the first time.

In case, problem persists, let me know.

Can't enter the code : 4 waiting displayed

you must leave your radio in power on for an hour just to clear the wait, after that only you are able to reenter your code. make sure do not power off the radio, or else every time you power on you still have to wait for an hour to clear it.

1998 Mercedes ML320 Radio code instructions

does your radio ask for the code when you turn on the ignition key. If you see _ _ _ _ or **** you should enter the code using the pre set numbers for your radio, ie, first code should be entered using the first pre set key on the radio ( number one ).
Followed by the second code number being entered using the second pre set button and so on until all of the code is entered.
After entering the full code the radio should accept, if not enter code again and press the next pre set key following, ie, if the code is 4 digits, press the fifth.
Hope this works.
If all this fails most garages will set the security code for you for a small charge. Make sure you take proof of car ownership otherwise they will normally refuse to reset the code. This is to foil theft.
