Had to disconnect the battery for a short while and when reconnected the radio went into "Wait" mode.
Has now been in this mode for a few months, have pulled the fuse with ignition on to kill the radio supply loads of times but still no enter code request display
Any short cuts ?

Maybe try pulling the radio out and removing the power plug completely?

There will be a permanent 12v feed that won't be affected by pulling the fuse for the ignition feed that lets you listen to the radio with the ignition off. I

Mightr out whatever is putting in "wait" mode.

I have a feeling that it needs to be powered up for something like a day to come out of wait mode. That would mean either a very long journey or leaving the car ignition turned on for a very long time, neither of which would be a good idea. You'll need to apply permanent power to the ignition switched supply and just leave it and hope it sorts itself out.

Is it the Clarion one or the later one? If you've put the wrong code in you need to hold down a button, possibly "BND" to reset it.

I’ll 2nd the hold down the band button, between 3-5 seconds normally, why the hell they have to make everything so bloody complicated I’ll never know.

It’s so easy to bugger up when entering the code, you won’t be the first, believe me.

At least now it will settle down and not keep you waiting a week, it’s strange, I don’t have mine on all the time, but if it’s not working I want it on,
