2000 Boxster S Radio CDR-220

I have a "good working" original radio that is acting up.
Boxster S 2000
CDR-220 Head

I disconnected the battery for charging and now I have a radio that 1st asked for a
Code ****, Not knowing what it was asking for I pressed the first "pre-set" button and entered (1111)

The radio does have power, but now shows ( WAIT ) !

I'm hoping I have an easy solution. I have a call into a Porsche dealer service dept.

Any suggestions ? I'm stuck on WAIT.

Thanks Woz

You will need to remove the radio & take it to a dealer so they can see the serial number on the back side & get the code number for you.

There is a thread in here called Radio codes or something, if you post in it the OP will post your a radio code. With it stuck in wait did you try removing power to get it to reset the radio again?

There is a way to get it to display the serial number without removing the radio but cant remember the sequence now.
