156 1.8 TS (2004) 5 door: sound system code

I've read the threads on code entry for the radio after battery connection, but don't really help. Had a new indicator / light stalk installed recently. On battery reconnection, the radio didn't allow me to enter the code (which has worked on all battery disconnections I've made over the last8 years!). What happens is that I get the CODE message, but the system sticks at the first digit and doesn't allow further digit entry. I don't get a WAIT message. I tried everything else suggested in the threads, but to no avail. I needed a new steering angle sensor and this was fitted. After reconnecting the battery, the radio accepted the code. The angle sensor needed calibration and this was done. On battery reconnection the same problem affected the radio - it refused to accept more than one digit of the code. I've tried disconnecting the battery for more than an hour / driving with radio powered up for more than an hour. But problem remains.
The problem I'm facing seems to be different from the one addressed in the old threads and it would be brilliant if anyone could make any suggestions for curing the problem.
