My bettery went flat on my rover 45 impressions 02 plate now my radio wants a code it just say code wait on the display. can any1 help me plz


Try '0000'. If not, you need to take it to a car audio specialist. I have also read that if you remove the radio and put it in a freezer bag in the freezer for 24 hours, it clears the memory!

Pulled radio to get serial # and now I can't get the radio to go into code input mode. it just says "safe" and the icon for pause is on


If you've entered a bad code a couple times, you need to wait an hour while the radio and ignition are on. Then, turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed. Then Press the FM1 button and hold it down, then while holding down the FM1 button, press and hold the AM buttons so that both buttons are held down simultaneously. Release the buttons. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (one through 4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button "two" changes the second digit in the code 1"0" "three" 00, button changes the third digit, button 4 changes the last digit in the code. In most cases the first digit is a 1 and won't need to be changed. You push each pre-set station button multiple times to step through the digits (1-9) to get the correct code displayed.
Code 1246 would entered by pushing button "2" two times, pushing button 3 four times, and pushing button 4, six times.

After entering the correct security code, push and hold down the FM1 and AM button simultaneously as before until SAFE is displayed, then release the 2 buttons, and now the radio should now work.

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.

How can you get your radio to work in you 1994 saab? when you disconnect the battery what is the next step to resetting the code?


Anti- Theft Lock

1. Switch on the ignition

2. Press the VOL/ ON switch to turn on the system on, CODE IN will appear in the display.

3. Enter the 4 digit code using the preset buttons. The system will now appear.
- I believe the code for your car is 5253, but you might want to call the Saab dealer for the code

If yu make a mistake while entering your code, finish entering all four digits. Press and hold BAND switch until CODE IN appears in the display. The correct code can now be entered.

NOTE: If you enter an incorrect code three times in succession, you must wait one hour with the Audio Sysytem turned on before making a new attempt. After the one hour waiting period, the system will allow only one code entry attempt. If the code entry is incorrect, you must again wait one hour before another attempt.

Radio display reads loc and does not work any ideas keyless entry would not stop horn so i pulled fuse put fuse back in and radio reads loc and will not play


You need to enter a radio code to reactivate your radio. When the fuse was pulled, it cut the 12 volt to the radio and the radio anti-theft came on. Try entering 0000 to unlock you radio, if your radio does not take any more entries. Disconnect the battery again for 1 min and reconnect and then you can reenter codes again, if the code is not 0000. You can go the dealer and they can reactivate your radio, but if they want a crazy amount. Log on to radio-code.com, there is a fee but it's like $24.00. good luck and keep use posted.

Landrover cassette display appear "SAFE" This cassette model is XQE500550.How can fix safe mode.


If you have the correct radio code for the unit, just wait about an hour with the power on in the radio. The screen will eventually display (code) or (enter code) follow the directions in your radio manual to enter the code and the radio will be operational again. The safe mode is on because either the radio fuse blew, the battery was too low on charge or the radio was momentarilly disconnected from it's power source. Most common is low battery voltage. Charge your vehicle battery, locate the radio code, wait till radio displays CODE and enter the code an have happy tunes again.
