Radio Wait Light

(1999 Mercedes-Benz E430)
When my battery went dead I had a new one put in. Then my combined radio/cd, etc. would not come on. The word code came up & I just put in nos. unsuccessfully about 4 times. Now it has been saying WAIT for about TWO 1/2 HOURS during the time I drive (I have been driving about an hour back and forth to work for these two days along with some misc. driving. I found out from the book you have to wait w/the radio power on about 10 minutes after putting in a wrong code. (Since then I HAVE obtained the correct radio code.) Do you have an estimation as to how long will it take for the word Code to appear again so I can put in the correct code?

If the wait stays on for that long, I would stop by the dealer and explain the situation. They should be able to reset that for you and enter the correct code as a courtesy or at least a very low fee. If you want to drop names, talk to Barry at Downtown LA Motors and tell him Berny at Foreign Car Repairs in Inglewood sent you there. That might help.
