    I actually figured out that my husband tried to enter in the wrong code TWICE, so it locked up. If this happens to anyone...you have to let the car run for a full hour before it unlocks again to put in the correct code. Turns out though that my radio had been replaced so the code in my manual was STILL wrong! But VW hooked itup and figured it out! Geez, whoever thought this system up was deranged...or extremely bored!

How to exit Radio Safe mode on my passat


Hi
Wiih most radio units....If you have the proper code and have NOT tried more than 15 times to enter an incorrect code....you should be ok.
Turn OFF ignition switch and remove the key. Switch OFF interior lights. Switch ON Radio unit and SAFE will appear.
Leave everything alone for a period of ONE HOUR. During this time NO power (no matter how small) should be drawn from the battery. This is why the interior lights MUST NOT come ON when the door is opened. Trunk should also remain closed. In the event of any power been drawn from the battery in this time...You must start all over again.
Radio should after this time return to standard mode...Usually 4 flashing bars. Then enter your code. Dont forget to lock in the code and all should be fine
All the best with it

If it's in safe 2 it's locked. With a battery charger on put the key on handbrake on to take off daytime lights if you have them. Turn the radio on for an 1 hr to 1 hr 1/2 until the display reads 1000. Enter your radio code and your set.
