Question "Error" on dash display


Ive got an 03 Scenic, which I ve inherited - with the multi changer CD unit.

The battery died a few months ago - so I changed it and then left the car stored in the garage ever since. Probably for about 3 months

At the time of changing the battery, I must have input the radio code incorrectly and it went from displaying "CODE" to "ERROR".

The manual states that it will prompt you for another CODE input with the time interval before each incorrect attempt doubling....1 min , 2min, 4 min ,8 min, 16mins....... up to 32 mins. with each incorrect code input (Not sure what happens after 32!!)

I must have hit the 32 min barrier the last time I tried - although this was months ago now. I would have hoped that since the car has been untouched for all of this time that when I retrieved it from storage that the CODE prompt would have been displayed( I have the correct code now...I hope{there were 3 or 4 numbers that it might have been and I tried them all})

After that long intro...can anyone tell me what I need to do next, is it as simple as disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and hoping that I'm prompted for the CODE again.....or do I have a geniune fault?

Any advice is very gratefully accepted.

1. Do you have the code for the radio you inherited? if you cant get hold of it you will need to take it to your local renault dealership.

2. If you do have your correct code then you will need to leave the ignition on til the four 0's is displayed. this may take a while so make sure you have a battery charger on or engine running
