Hi Guys,
I originally posted a query to this in the I.C.E. section, but got little response as I believe that its mainly for new stereo's.
The problem is exactly as the title. I have had my punto for 5 days now when I bought it the radio had the 'wait' message on, due to the garage believing that they had the right code for the radio, they put in the wrong code and got the 'wait' message. I rang the main dealer from where the car was originally bought and they gave me the correct code. But I am still waiting for the 'wait' message to dissapear and like I say its been 5 days. I drive an hour and a half to work every day and just want some tunes, its driving me nuts, I have tried disconnecting the stereo from the dash for a few hours and then plugging it back in, and have also disconnected the battery, and touched the end of the leads together, all to no avail.
Anyone who can help?
Thanks a lot guys
Fram.

Every time you enter the wrong code it takes longer before you can try to enter it again, I can't remember the amount of time it increases by though hopefully they have'nt tryed the wrong code too many times else it will be locked out.
