    Default radio code

    the code was put wrong in my radio a few times (3) the display says 7 safe now so i guess i have 7 attempts left, i have the code now so just need one more go

    but holding down as when i turn on the radio is no longer working

    does it need to be reset a different way now ???

    You need to leave the ignition on for 10 mins that will reset the AS button,so if you get it wrong this time you have to wait 20 minutes them 30 mintues and so on,if you get to 10 it will be knackered,hth.......

    Lot longer wait periods than that. It doubles on each incorrect entry.

    Attempt 1 - wait 10 secs. (Display shows 10SAFE)
    Attempt 2 - wait 10 secs. (Display shows 9SAFE)
    Attempt 3 - wait 10 mins. (Display shows 8SAFE)
    Attempt 4 - wait 20 mins. (Display shows 7SAFE)
    Attempt 5 - wait 40 mins. (Display shows 6SAFE)
    Attempt 6 - wait 80 mins. (1 hr 20 mins) (Display shows 5SAFE)
    Attempt 7 - wait 160 mins. (2 hrs 40 mins) (Display shows 4SAFE)
    Attempt 8 - wait 320 mins. (5 hrs 20 mins) (Display shows 3SAFE)
    Attempt 9 - wait 640 mins. (10 hrs 40 mins) (Display shows 2SAFE)
    Attempt 10 - Time for a professional to take a look. (Display shows 1SAFE)

    You'll also have to leave the key in the ignition, and the stereo switched on with xSAFE displaying (where x is the number of tries left.)

    Once the waiting period is over, the display should change to xCODE (where x is the number of tries left.)

    You only need to turn it to position 1. ie, steering lock unlocked, but dash lights NOT on.
