Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

When it enters the wait mode you have to leave the key on for an hour or more or leave the engine on for an hour or more so the radio then sees constant power.It should then go back to wanting a code.Then you want to insert the correct code.If you do not have the correct code you may have to contact a dealer to obtain this code.In some cases they will not charge for this code if you show them proof of ownership and a photo ID.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
