Your device is asking about unlock code; will need enter this code or, if dont have, ask your dealer (showed your VIN number). Keep in mind that this security code is unique each vehicle, then cannot find in internet.

Hope this helps.

The batery on my 1998 beatle died now the radio does not work when i turn it on a message apears that reads safe and that is it any ideas


Your anti-theft has been activated. If you have the manual that came with your radio, follow the instructions from the pamphlet. If not, go to the dealer and get the code for the radio. By US law, the dealer must provide the anti-theft code free of charge. Once you have the code, press and hold the mode and scan buttons, and as soon as 1000 displays, immediately release the buttons. Enter the code using preset buttons 1,2,3 and 4. 1 for the first digit, 2 for the second digit and so on, until you've typed in the correct code. Press and hold mode and scan again, until safe again appears on the display. If entered correctly, a radio frequency will display after a few seconds and your radio can be used again :D

My audi a6 radio has a SAFE message in the screen what it does mean?


Did you disconnect the battery or run it down? This message means you must enter the correct code. If you do not have the code contact your Audi dealer. I'm not sure which model you have but these are the instructions for Symphony 1.
I'm not sure if this also applies to Symphony 2 (which has a built in single slot 6 CD changer)

Switch on - display shows SAFE as you indicate.
Press and hold TP and RDS buttons at same time until 1000 appears.
Release buttons (dont touch again or 1000 will be entered as the code).
Using station select buttons 1 to 4 enter code. Use button 1 to select first digit of security code, button 2 for second digit etc (buttons 5 and 6 cannot be used). So, say the code is 5238, you'd press '1' five times, '2' twice, '3' three times and button '4' eight times.
Once code is entered press TP and RDS buttons together and holde until SAFE appears
Release buttons and a radio frequency will appear in the display.


If you accidently enter the wrong code the word SAFE will start flashing. You get ONE more chance to go through this procedure and enter the correct code.
There is a more complicated procedure to go through after this with one hour time delays between attempts.

How to enter the radio code? 1999 beetle


When you turn your radio on (usually after interupting power to the vehicle) you will get a "safe" message on the radio face plate. After 3 seconds you will get 4 numbers. Enter the assigned 4 digit number by using the preset radio buttons 1-4. Once you get the number in, push the ">" portion of the "scan" button until you get an audible "beep." Your radio should be back in business
