By now you probably solved this problem but here it goes. Once power is disrupted to the radio the radio goes into safety mode. At this point only the dealer can give you the code to restart the radio. The radio must be removed to gain access to the series of numbers on the tag. The dealer can input these numbers into the computer to retrieve your code. Once you have the code you can write it down and keep a copy (in multiple places) and also put it on a piece of tape and put it under the cover of the armrest or anywhere else that it is not visible. Any time power id interupted to the radio this will happen, even if the fuse is removed by accident. If you are taking the car for repairs always have that number if you llike your radio.

I have changed the battery on my TT . The radio is howing safe mode, I know the pin but dont know which buttons I have to press to put it in, can you help??


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

The sequence of programming for Audi TT 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.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
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!

How to exit Radio Safe mode on my passat


Hi
Wiih most radio units....If you have the proper code and have NOT tried more than 15 times to enter an incorrect code....you should be ok.
Turn OFF ignition switch and remove the key. Switch OFF interior lights. Switch ON Radio unit and SAFE will appear.
Leave everything alone for a period of ONE HOUR. During this time NO power (no matter how small) should be drawn from the battery. This is why the interior lights MUST NOT come ON when the door is opened. Trunk should also remain closed. In the event of any power been drawn from the battery in this time...You must start all over again.
Radio should after this time return to standard mode...Usually 4 flashing bars. Then enter your code. Dont forget to lock in the code and all should be fine
All the best with it

Entering radio code


Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.

Radio in safe mode


OK do you have the radio in your hands? IF not you have to remove it using the special tools slotted to unlock it and pull it out. The radio serial is etched into it but you have to remove it to see. With this and the car's serial and proof of ownership VW can get the radio code for you. Or they'd be happy to remove it for you as well and get the other info themselves.
