Good luck & please flag if "HELPFUL". Thanks!

(from section) Luxury Audio System


Selecting the AM or FM frequency band

Push the "AM" or "FM1/FM2" button to select the desired frequency band. Pushing the "FM1/FM2" button more than once will alternate between FM1 and FM2. These functions are used with the station memory buttons described under How to tune radio stations.

HOW to tune radio stations

There are four ways for you to tune in a particular station. You can use the "TUNE", "SEEK", 'SCAN"or memory buttons.

• Using the "TUNE" function:
You can change the frequency up or down one increment at a time by Pressing and releasing either the left (< arrow/up) or - right (> arrow/down) side of the "TUNE" or "TUNE DISCS" button. To change frequencies quickly, press and hold down either the right or left side of the button.

Manual tuning adjusts your radio to any allowable broadcast frequency, whether or not a station is present on that frequency. (See All About Radio Frequencies in this section.)

• Using the "SEEK" function
: Press the right *) side of the "SEEK" button to select the next listenable station up the frequency band. Press the left (.4) side of the button to select the next listenable station down the frequency band. By holding the button down, listenable stations can be passed over to reach the desired station. Pressing the "SCAN" button will begin the scan mode up the frequency band, stopping on each listenable station for approximately five seconds. To stop the scan mode on the presently sampled station, press the "SCAN" button again.

Setting the station MEMORY PRESET buttons
: Your radio is equipped with 6 station memory buttons. These buttons can be used to select up to 6 preset AM stations and 12 FM stations (6 in FMI and 6 in FM2)

1. Select a band, then select a frequency.

2. Press one of the memory buttons and hold until the sound returns and the lamp above the memory button lights up. That
memory button is now set.

3. Follow the above steps for each memory preset button.

NOTE:
Custom memory presets can be recalled using the keyless entry system. See Memory Profile System in the Features chapter.

Using the Automatic Memory Store feature ("AUTOSET")
: If the memory buttons have been set, either by using the Auto Memory Load feature or if you have set them manually, the system is prepared tolet you use a convenient feature called Automatic Memory Store.

With Auto Memory Store, you can continually set strong stations into your memory buttons without losing your originally set stations. Your radio will automatically set your memory buttons to the strong local stations.

Activate Auto Memory Store by pushing the "AUTOSET" button once. Your radio will set the first six strong stations of the band you are in (AM, FMI or FM2) into the memory buttons. The display will flash "AUTO" and display the autoset icon "A" while the stations are being set in the memory buttons.

NOTE: If there are less than six strong stations in the frequency band, the remaining unfilled buttons will store the last strong station detected on the band. After all stations have been filled, the radio will begin playing the station stored on memory button 1.

To deactivate the Auto Memory Store mode and return to the manually-set memory button stations, simply push the "AUTOSET" button. Display will show "AUTO" then "OFF". The next time Auto Memory Store is activated on that band, the radio will store the next set of six strong stations.

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.

My 1998 vw beetle its stuck on 2 safe mode i need help getting that out thanks


First of all you should exit from 2 safe mode. Then turn ON the radio and let it turned ON for at least one hour, in order to exit from 2 safe mode.

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


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of VW radio programming 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.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
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!

Trying to set time after battery died, not shown in manuel correctly


Usually on older AC-Delco/Remy Radio, press the "set" button and it will take you back to the radio station frequency, then push the left knob inward, then it will take you back to the time again. Before the "set" mode ceases, use the seek and scan buttons to change the minute and hour for the time, until you get to the time you want.


Other models will have the "set" button being a small almost hidden button, you can use a paper clip pin end to depress. Which will initiate the "set" mode, then you can push in the left or right knobs and the time mode will come on. Then using seek rocker switch or the seek and scan buttons the time minutes and hours will start to change.


The last type is where you have to either hold down the set button then use the seek and scan buttons or you have to hold down the set button for about 4 seconds then the clock will go into a blinking or set display mode, for which you can use either the knobs or the seek and scan buttons to produce minute and hour change display on your clock.



Try these methods. I know on older GM vehicles with AC Delco/Remy type radios/stereos, usually there is a "set" button for setting your favorite radio stations to instant numbered buttons, usually up to four or five of them. This same "set" button can be used to set the time. But when you hit the "set" button it will take you to the radio station frequency, not the time. That is when you press in the left knob or sometimes the right knob, and the time display will come on, while it is still in the set mode. Then you can press on the seek and scan buttons, one of them will change your minutes the other one will change your hours, for your clock display time. When you reach the correct time you desire, then hit the "set" button again, which will turn off the set mode. Your clock should start working normally, starting from the time you've set
