Are you sure that a tuner list radio is compatible with your car ? There are two types of head unit, an update list and a tuner list. The two are not compatible,.
What car / year car are you trying to install it into ?
Does CODE come up on the radio display when you turn it on ? To enter the code you use the roller switch in the remote stalk IIRC.
Another possibility is the previous owner tried to enter the code incorrectly too many times and its locked itself. Each time the code if put in wrongly it doubles the time before allowing you to enter the code in again. Try leaving the ignition and radio on for a while (20 mins ?) and see if you can then enter the code.
