I have the code and I have used it in the past because my battery died all the time so I got a new one but before I did I goofed up and put the wrong code in and now I cannot for the hell of me figure out what I'm doing wrong Im waiting now in my car for it to do something (45) mins. What am I doing wrong.

Just park it with the radio on...come back in a couple hours. Can't remember what the interval is, but on the later head units it was an hour or 4 hours or something for the lock-out to reset.
If...you have a single din I have a spare head unit brand new in the box, cheap!

DIN is a standard for the size of the radio hole, You have a 'double DIN' so if you cut your radio in half it would the size of the one referenced above so it won't fit yours. ECS used to have these for the cheap but it is no longer on their site.

If the code worked it will click and the radio will turn on.
