I have bought a second hand Micra. Radio not working because battery supply was cut off. I have number code to restore it, but when I follow instructions in handbook and enter code, the display shows "Wait 1 Hr" and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong, please? Gill



Hopefully i can help..


The wait 1 hour means the radio has gone in to safe mode - this means either the code you have has been put in wrongly or the code is incorrect - the usual method to get it off wait 1 hour etc is try by leaving the radio and ignition switched on - dont start the car - just leave the radio powered up showing that message and the ignition on and leave it for and hour - keep checking every so often to see if its come of that message - when it does it will then allow you to enter the code..So if safe to do so depending where the car is..then give that a try above - i do hope this helps
