Hi

Don't suppose anyone could help with a problem I have entering the code on a 2004 Alfa 156 Nav Connect hard unit, the one with Sat nav, phone, Bose etc. The car has had some work done to it and on it's return the stereo is asking for the code to be entered. I have the code, but unfortunately while turning the dial on the right to select the digit works ok, pushing the dial to enter the number doesn't. The stereo all worked perfectly prior to this.

I suspect someone may have tried to enter the incorrect code too many times, I don't know, but I was wondering if there is a way to reset the code system and start again from scratch. I've tried disconnecting the battery for a while but that made no difference.

Any ideas?

cheers.

What exactly is the process you have been using to enter the code?

Have you tried leaving the key in the MAR position for an hour then trying again?

Have you tried going for a long drive (> 1hr) and then tried to input the code again with car still running?

Haven't tried this one, thanks.

Yes, tried that. Have tried just entering the code with the car running, key in MAR, disconnecting battery and re-entering code with key in MAR. Someone thought disconnecting the battery for over an hour might help, not sure if I left it for that long when I tried.
