Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My radio displays "88.3, the word volume, and FM1". I cannot use any functions. But "Safe" never comes up to allow me to enter a code. I changed my battery a week before this happened. Any clue as to what else it could be?
heres what u do , switch radio on , safe appears in radio display , followed by 1000 approximately 3 seconds later , input the security code found on the radio card using the station preset buttons on the radio , Button 1 corresponds to the first number in the security code , 2 is the second and so on . press the applicable button repeatedly until the desired number appears in the display , ( press button 1 three times if the first number is 3 ), when the entire code has been input and appears on the display , press the right side of the seek button for longer than 2 seconds until an audible signal is heard , ,,, if you do not get this procedure correct , in 2 attempts , the radio will lock up for 1 hour before you can try again .. if this happens , leave the radio on for minimum 1 hour without touching it , after that time you may try again ..

you will have to leave radio turned on with the ignition on for a hour or so at least.best thing is lock the car with your spare key on leave on the ignition while its on your drive.....eventually it will display code again.

"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.
