After changing the battery on my 1998 Golf, I can't remember how to enter the 4 digit code even though I know the number! I get the number in but don't know what else needs doing to make it work. Very frustrating! Can you help me?

1 enters the 1st place value, 2 enters the second place value, 3 enters the 3rd place value, 4 enters the 4th place value. press the buttons as required to enter your code. if you enter it wrong and it locks up, you will have to leave the ignition and the radio on for 1 hour.
If it is a factory stereo,you have to call a Saturn dealer and they will give you a code to unlock.I don't know if the automatically tell you how to do it so you may have to ask.Write it down too because it will happen every time the battery gets disconnected and sometimes it needs to be even though they aren't working on your battery.Good luck!

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.
"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.
I assume you have this unlocked by now, but here's an answer for someone else for the future :-) if you have the original radio that come with the car, look in the wheel well in the trunk, where the spare tire goes. (yep, you'll need to stand on your head). there is a sticker that will have the 4-digit code on it. enter that into the radio. I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is, but either the >> Scan or the am/fm button will be the "enter key"
If you have the Delta stereo (with the power/volume knob in the middle), you need to hold the "DX" and "FM1/2" buttons simultaneously. Hold them down for a few seconds, and SAFE will be replaced with numbers. Use the radio preset keys (1-4 I believe) to enter each number. When the code is successfully input, hold down the DX and FM1/2 buttons again, and the stereo will start to work.
If you mess up entering the code, you can try again. If you mess up a second time, you have to leave the stereo off and the key turned on in the ignition for an hour to allow you two more tries.
THAT LEAK IS UN-METERED AIR ENTERING THE ENGINE, FIX IT AND RETEST SYSTEM. P103 IS A MAF CODE. A MAF MEASURES THE AIR ENTERING THE ENGINE, AND BASED THAT AND ON OTHER DATA THE PCM DECIDES THE AMOUNT OF FUEL TO INJECT.
