I have a 1993 400SEL, which I recently purchased; however, the radio does not come on. When I cut the radio on, the word, "WAIT", flashes. (According to the manual and the dealer, the word, "CODE" is supposed to appear at which point in time I would punch in the code - which I got from the dealer.) The problem is that the word, "CODE", never appears. I have left the car running for 30 minutes to see if the word, "WAIT", ever shifts to "CODE". It does not happen. Anyone have the solution?

Sometimes it takes days for the radio to get out of "wait" mode. This occurs after multiple unsuccessful attempts to input the code. Do what it says and wait. Eventually it will come back around to "code".

Do I just keep pressing power to turn the radio on each time I get in the car, wait for the "WAIT" sign to flash and just keep waiting?
