You have a short somewhere. Your audio eqipment signals "safe" to prevent surges in its componants. You must trace the short (most likely touching the car frame) and repair/prevent the short from occuring.

My 1997 saab radio doesn't work after i change the battery


Radio on the Saab need a code of 4 numbers to put back on the radio. The moment you take out the cables of battery the radio is out. Is a security things on the Saab. When you bought the car should have a card and keep the card in the safe place don't loose.
That how you put the radio on.

Radio blocked


Blocked? I am guessing that it has something on the display, like"SAFE"? If there is power going to it, and signs of some life...it could be the car's radio alarm. When battery power is lost to the radio, it will trip an alarm. It requires a 4 digit code to work again.
If you have the owner's manual, you can find it in there. If not...
If you pull the radio, DO NOT disconnect any wires, and find the serial number on it, you can call a dealer and get the code for the radio.
Some cars hold down MODE and SCAN and the SAFE should change to 1000. This is where you input the numbers using the up and down to change number value & the first four station buttons to change to next number.
Good Luck.

1999 Jetta change battery, radio dead


Actually pull out the radio fuse for 15 seconds and then re-install. Mine usta just quit working once in a great while, and this was the fix. Radio fuse #42 if this is a "New Jetta A4 body" or fuse # 22 on an older "A3 body style"

AAA advised me to open and close door with key


Yes. Because the security system was "set". You need the code to unlock the security system for the radio. It is like that for theft pruposes. Best bet is to go to the dealership to have them reset it or figure out how to get the code for your radio.
