    My CCR600 CD player wont go into the mode for entering the
    code even though i go through the procedure right, I have 7 attempts
    left and now im confident i have the right number, i did read that
    theres a time delay that gets longer between attempts, what is it please?
    or am i possibly doing something else wrong?

    thanks for any advice

    Forgive any impertinence, but are you absolutely certain you're following
    correct procedure? If so, then my understanding is that the first 3
    attempts are not time-limited, thereafter the interval between attempts
    doubles each time (1 minute, 2, 4, 8 etc)- and the ignition and radio MUST
    be left on between attempts. Your handbook should confirm this (or

    Hi, Thanks for the reply, I am sure im doing the prcedure right, it says 7
    instead of 7 _ _ _ _ where the dashes is where the 4 digit code goes and
    the 7 is the number of tries i have left,

    are you trying to enter the code for the head unit or the separate changer?

    I've recently had to reset mine do to power loss.
    I couldn't be sure that what I had was what was on the radio pass as some
    units were exchanged under warranty, but the radio pass was not updated.
    SO .... I went to my friendly VX dealer in Lincolnshire (Thurlby Motors) and
    got a new Vehicle Pass - they took the radio & CD out for me & checked the
    codes and applied to VX for the pass. £15+VAT and 24 hours is all it
    costs - almost painless! (;<D)).
    You will then have a laminated pass card with all security references on for
    the future.
    Good luck

    If you are doing it right - nearly same as putting radio code in head unit
    apart from pressing cd button instead of as - it sounds like code is wrong -
    just take Bob's advice and get it decoded.

    in but it wont go into the put in the code mode, looks like i will have to

    if it isn't showing the ---- after the 7 it is in wait mode so you need to
    leave it turned on till it is ready for another go.
