Well I had a DEAD DEAD battery that wouldn't even take a jump charge so towed to get a new one. The STEALER I mean dealer obtained the (WRONG) code and entered it several times until it went to lockout CODE WAIT.

I drove home and found the pass code card and it's a completely different number (number they assured me WAS the right number does not match US or EUROPE). Must be another brand for same serial as mentioned above?

Interesting in that I bought the car from THIS stealer/dealer.

So if I just turn on the key to FIRST position (not second) for an hour or two will it clear back to CODE _ _ _ _ _ or did their THREE attempts lock me out for good.

3) I do NOT have a charger so setting key to SECOND position worries me...too much drain on barely used/charged new battery. I drove for over an hour and the CODE WAIT did NOT clear. So now trying the first position parked.

Maybe I need to start a new thread?
