SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.

The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.

My code for my radio doesnt work keeps staying in safe mode


If the radio is an OEM Volkswagen can give you the code using the VIN number. If the radio is not the original the only way you'll be able to get the code is from the manufacture using the model# and the serial number.

I change the battery of my golf 3 1996 the radio stacked in the safe mode HOW TO INSERT THE CODE THANKS


Turn on the radio so it says SAFE.Press and hold the MODE and SCAN buttons simultaneously for a few seconds until the display says 1000. LET GO OF THE BUTTONS.Enter your 4-digit radio code using the first 4 buttons on the radio. For example, if your code is 0213 press the 1 button once to clear the one - it will be blank. Press the number 2 button twice, the number 3 button once, and the number 4 button 3 times.Press and hold the MODE and SCAN buttons again simultaneously for a few seconds until it displays a radio station, then let go. I believe if you screw up you get one more chance to re-enter it before you have to let the car sit with the radio on for an hour.

Radio reads safe


The radio reads "safe" because you lost power to the radio. Either the battery was replaced, the battery was dead, or one of the terminals was disconnected. You will need to take the serial number from the radio to your local VW dealer where he can call in to obtain the programming code for your radio. The dealers usually do not charge in order for you to obtain the code.

Re sitting the radio in my VW golf


The number buttons on the stereo change the code, so push the 1 button 3 times for 3, 2 button 1 time for 1, and so on. If your code was 2255, you'd hit the 1 button 2 times, the 2 button 2 times, the 3 button 5 times, and the 4 button 5 times. When the code is displayed on the screen, you press Mode and Scan at the same time AND HOLD THEM until the radio unlocks. It'll let you know if it's the right number.

Vw golf .... alpha...... safe 2


"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.
