Red face Re: Renault Scenic radio code entered but still locked

Well I have had the code confirmed by an online electronics site and it is exactely the same code I the scrappy gave me and have been trying .

so either ther is omething wrong with the stereo or I am missing something out.

Any ideas appreciated,

Thanks, Matthew

Re: Renault Scenic radio code entered but still locked

If either the wrong code is entered or is entered incorrectly then the radio will lock you out for around 5 minutes the first time. This period doubles on each occasion up to a maximum of around 2 hours but the radio needs to be left switched on for its internal clock to calculate the time. So try leaving the radio switched on and see if it resets and try again.
Something in the back of my mind makes me think the wiring may have to be altered to suit a more modern unit. I could be wrong but no doubt someone will correct me.

Thanks Noel, unfortunately the radio won't stay on for a long enough period of time I turned in on tried the code and then went inside for just over an hour twice and when I came it out it had switched itself off both times.

I just find it very odd that when I revert bcak and insert the old tape deck it works straight away till without the insertion of any code. And this one won't accept its code that I have had verified form another source as well as the scrap yard.

Looks as if I will just have to pay the return postage, which willbe a fair bit I assume.

Question Re: Renault Scenic radio code entered but still locked

In fact not only does the code not require enterring when I reinsert the old tape deck it also remembers the radio station preset's. So I'm wondering if there is a memeory other than that in the stereo itself tha I somehow need to clear inorder for it to accept the new cd player.

Also the baterry terminals appear to be quite firm, I removed the coupe consol fuse when nstalling the player is their anoher fuse I could remove that might make it clear the stereo memory?

Unless the ignition is switched on the radio automatically switches itself off after 15 or 20 minutes as it is designed to do.
