    I'd have to guess maybe you're not entering the code using the correct procedure?

    The common one seems to be:
    Ignition on... switch radio off..... press and hold AS and switch radio on... wait for beep.
    After beep display shows something like 'Safe 10 - - - -'
    Enter code using number buttons 1-4 to cycle through each number position - keep pressing button 1 until correct number is displayed in position 1..... then button 2, etc, etc until correct code is shown.
    Press and hold AS until beep.... radio should then burst into life assuming correct code was entered.

    If it's not a code entry problem there may be a communication fault between the head unit and the car ECU ie the car thinking it has the wrong head unit fitted.

    Safe 10 means you need to wait longer before trying it again, but for it to count down you need to leave the ignition on.

    Before you lock it for 24 hours, read the manual mate.

    ooops sorry

    Safe 7 means its not going to let you enter a code for another 7 mins - 7 mins with the ignition on.

    The more times you enter it wrong, the longer it makes you wait.
