Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

On some vehicles the radio will lock if the wrong code is entered enough times and then has to be sent to a repair facility to be unlocked, but hopefully that isn't the case.

It sound just be a matter of either allowing enough time or disconnecting the battery again. If you disconnect the battery for a minute or so and reconnect it then you should be prompted to enter the code again. Have you tried this?

unfortunately the radios been like that for almost 2 years now so might just bite the bullet and go back to the original dealer? We did take out the battery for an hour or so but it didn't reset the radio.

If the problem started as a result of a battery disconnect then the radio may have failed or it may need to be unlocked by a repair facility as I touched on earlier. If disconnecting the battery again didn't allow you to enter the code then sending the radio to a repair facility or replacing it will most likely be necessary.
