Step 11Seek and Scan buttons Press and hold the SEEK and bottom SCAN buttons until "1000" appears, this should just be a few seconds. Step 222Release the buttons and in put the code using the radio buttons. For example if your code is 1933, press the "1" button one time, then the "2" button 9 times, the "3" button 3 times and the "4" button 3 times. Step 33Then press and hold again the SEEK and bottom SCAN until the word SAFE appears. Step 44Release the buttons and the radio should start playing.

I own a 98 jetta, I just completed some major engine work . But now I can't start it and the radio says safe mode.... whats up?


(STEREO-SAFE MODE ) Look on the (Stereo Booklet) It has a Vehicle stereo code card in the front page. Type the four digit code as it tells you in the instructions. If you don't have the booklet call the dealer and tell them to give you the code it should be free.

Cant switch on radio - says: ''code 1''


The radio alarm has been tripped. Any loss of power to the system will cause this to happen. It wants you to input the 4 digit code to reset the radio. If you do not have it, you can pull the stereo and get the serial numbers, and ask the VW dealer for the code. It should be free info if you supply the serial numbers.
With the power on and SAFE showing on the display, press and hold the MODE and SCAN button together until SAFE changes to 1000. Release the buttons and using the first four station buttons enter the radio code.
Use button #1 to change the 1 to the correct code, pressing once will change to 2 twice to 3 etc
Use button number 2 to change the next number etc.

When you have entered the correct code; press and hold the SCAN and MODE buttons together until code disappears and radio comes on.
I hope this may help.
Good Luck!

Okay. So my 1995 Volkswagen stereo is in safe mode and everytime i press the two buttons, it just blinks and won't let me enter the code anymore. How do I fix it?


With the radio in safe mode, you have to disconnect the battery again to reset the radio so you can enter the right radio code. If you don't have the radio code or it's wrong, keep me posted. be glad to help you get your radio working again. Good luck, friend.

If i get a new cd player/radio for my jetta work if in safe mode?


If you buy another factory radio it'll need the unlock code to work with your factory alarm system. But if you go with an after market radio it'll work just fine, your alarm will just think there's no radio installed.
