Radio code problem


I have just purchased a second hand Megane I 2001 1.9dci.

Having a problem entering the code for the radio. I have the code, but when I switch the radio on and the word CODE appears, I cannot get this to switch to 0000 to enter the numbers. I have pressed the "enter" button on the steering wheel remote, but this does nothing (nor do any other buttons or the wheel!).

Does this the radio is locked? Is there a way of resetting it?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Hi Glyn - whiilst it is possible the radio has locked you out for good it may be just on delay. Each time you enter the code incorrectly the radio will lock you out for longer periods each time - it automatically keeps doubling the lock-out time. I suggest you leave it switched on - preferably whilst driving as it automatically wants to switch off when left without the ignition on. Keep your eye on it and after maybe up to an hour it should come up with the "0000" and then you can enter the code.
