Inputting a stereo code


After putting in a new battery, I was greeted with the word "CODE" on my stereo's faceplate. Confidently, I whipped out the code card and input the 4 digits. To my surprise, nothing happened...the "C" was flashing and the other letters were not but the word "CODE" still was there taunting me...what to do?

Are you supposed to push another button after inputting all 4 digits?

I think you have the 210 radio. After you enter the code push on the toggle with the arrows that you use to change the station.
