Look in your owner's manual packet. There should be a card in there with your unlock code. If there isn't, take it to the dealer with your title and registration. They'll look up the unlock code for you so you can use the radio again. They may charge you up to an hour's labor though.

Pls I cant unlock the radio grunding for my smart car


Safe mode means that you have tried many times with the wrong code , you have to wait for a short while so that it will allow you to put the code again. Usually it is 30 minutes while ignition is on.

Try to get the correct code from this link MERCEDES BENZ CAR RADIO CODES

1998 volkswagen beetle radio code is safe what does this mean


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your Volkswagen radio from the car manufacturer, or from a Volkswagen dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for a 1998 VW Beetle radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed. The radio is now ready for use!

What does safe mean on on instrumental panel


Means radio need code input via the numbered buttons on the fascia of radio.

Look in vehicle paperwork for Radio Code.

If you don't have it, visit VW with ownership papers and your licence and ask for code. They may charge you if your new there.

I think you need a new battery.
Replace it and the radio will probably reset ok when you input the code..

"2 safe" means that your radio was in safe mode, and then the code was improperly entered 2 times. you either need to disconnect your battery and leave it for up to 4 hours (i've been told), or leave your key in the ignition for around an hour.

once it comes out of "2 safe" mode, then it will just say SAFE and give you the numbers 1-0-0-0. You just need to enter the 4 digit code (using your pre-set numbers 1-2-3-4 to change the numbers), then hold the seek > button and your radio should come on.

If you don't have the code, call VW. they'll find your code for free. they did for me. if not they'll charge like $50 or something.

Safe means you have to key in a code for the radio to be unlocked. You are given three chances and then you must wait two hours before you try again. I'm not sure how you find out what the code is if you don't have it already.

Was in SAFE mode now screen is blank


bad ground or bad power source behind radio and radios sometimes has fuse to the back of radio
something might have surged the cars electrics

some vehicles come with 3 fuses for radios sometimes more
these fuses are listed as
fuse box
power wire fuse box this will be located on the power wire to radio
and then you have the radio fuse

some radios have what they call an antitheft shutdown if the code was not properly put in after so many times the radio completly shuts off or for a length of time it will also shut down the radio

recommendation take vehicle to dealer so they can show and reapply code for you to you then you would never forget how to do it
