Is there anyway I can type in the radio code to get the radio back on. The car is a MKII 2000 with the tade deck radio unit.

Hi mate,

Each time you enter the code in incorectly, it will display wait for a set period of time. Each additional time you enter it in wrong increases this time up to a maximum of 24 hours. You simply have to do as it says, and wait untill the "wait" dissapears off the screen, then you can enter to correct code and the headunit will work.

Hope that helps,
Alan

Cheers anyhow...

To get up to 24 hours waiting time, you'd need to put the wrong code in more than 10 times.

Are you trying to crack a stolen radio? ;)

If you've just changed the battery, then you shouldn't need to enter the code. The only time you should need to enter the code is if the radio is not "paired" with the cars CAN network. Ie out of another car.

The code is the right length and format, but you would need to post the s/n and product no of the radio to confirm.
