radio rest problem....

So yeah got a new mattery the and just changed it out in the parking lot. Well long story short I typed in an incorrect code twice. Remembered it the third time but instead of radio coming online it reads : code wait. Now I hvae no problem waiting 30 sec. or so but two days. Are you serious. Well anyways. Bmw dealer isn't open to ask for help and I have exhausted my personal expertise(which isn't all that extensive really) so I am asking for help.

Oh yeah did I mention this whole problem is my fault for typing in an incorrect code.
