#1

for some reason i cant turn it on. it did turn on for a brief moment earlier today but it said something along the lines of “code wait”. how do i make my radio work?


#2

Rather than pay a pile of money to fix an 11 year old radio, you could have one of the radio and sound system shops install a nice Alpine system for much less.


#3

oh i figured it out =) i just left the car on for about an hour then typed in the security code. it works fine now except for the fact that it doesnt light up so i cant see wat station its on or anything but at least i can hear it. thanks anyway :slight_smile: and how much is an Alpine system?


#4

Less than the dealer’s repair cost for the present radio. For specifics, check with an installer.
