The reason you are having to wait is because wrong codes have been entered previously....and the waiting time doubles after each wrong code attempt.

The secret is to leave it switched ON ...UNDISTURBED until it has automatically reset itself.

Do not touch it until it has reset otherwise the waiting time starts again.

Make sure you have the correct code.

note: this code will NOT be available for free.

Only available from Main Dealer or Decoding Service

1994 BMW 525 radio displays "CODE WAIT" after I put in the code numbers

You need to wait 1 hour before attempting to put the code in. Either the ignition needs to stay on 1 hour or drive it for 1 hour. If they key is turned off before then, you will need to start again.

Lost radio code for vauxhall vectra radio vdo cdr2005

Unfortunately the majority of SIEMENS/VDO codes (including your CDR2005) will NOT be available for free (or cheap) from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database…which is not commercially available..

Try your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service or your local Car Radio / Audio Shop (who are normally the cheapest option) who will connect it to a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Put wrong code in fiat car stereo now it just says wait

hello there

yes thats normal when you enter a wrong code. You will have to wait about 2 hours with ignition key on and it will ask for the code again, get the code wrong again and the wait time doubles, from 2 to 4 to 8 hours etc.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks
