It says WAIT because wrong codes have been entered.

To rest , leave SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

Make sure you have the correct code

Jeep Grand Cherokee says "wait" even after a few hours

There is a "wait" period because someone has entered the wrong code 3 times.
You can try waiting with the key in the run position for 45 minutes. Just watch out for the lights coming on as that would just kill the battery.

Don't start it.... just leave the key all the way forward in the run position for about an hour.

The radio should say "code" after 45 min or so.

If you don't have the proper code, Just call any jeep dealer and talk to someone on the service drive... tell them you changed your battery and the radio wants a code that you don't have.
They should help you through the problem.

You can look in the glove box and in the owners manual for a code sticker.... Some people stick them to the back of the glove box or on the radio page of the owners manual.

Hope this helps

Changed the battery in jeep and nom the rds radio says wait 2 hours and i can not punch in the security code to make the radio start working again. It is in a 1996 Grand Cherokee right hand drive.

you will have to leave the radio on until it unlocks itself and resets, it could take 3mins or 3hrs, once this has happened you should be able to code the radio.
hope this helps
