Question HOLD message on Stereo

After a few jump starts the stereo in my 92 190e went code, after my son put in the wrong numbers it went to hold. I have the right code, is there an easy way to get the radio off HOLD?

Also, the ABS light continues to stay lit, even after the battery has been replaced. Can this be symptomatic of a bad voltage regulator?

Re: the HOLD message, three strikes, yer out. You need to wait 24 hours before you can try again.

Here is the whole procedure from my radio recoding guide:
As of M.Y. 1991 version Alpine Radios
Recoding Sequence:
1. Turn ignition key to position 2.
2. Turn radio ON. "CODE" appears on the display.
3. Enter the first digit of anti-theft code from CODE card. "CODE" will disappear and the entered digit will flash on the display panel.
4. Enter remaining three digits (total of four digits). Verify that the correct code is flashing on the panel. If a wrong digit is entered, re-enter code until correct code is diplayed.
5. Press button "*" to complete the sequence. Radio will beep and resume normal operation.

If Unsuccessful:
6. If "HOLD" appears on panel, the radio must be left ON until "CODE" appears. This may take either 15 minutes or 24 hours depending upon the the number of unsuccessful attempts made.
7. Once "CODE" appears, continue with step 3.
