Your radio is probably showing up SAFE in the display because you disconnected the power supply. On this particular vehicle you have to re enter a security code to get the radio to work again.

You may find you have this security code somewhere in your service documentation or owners manuals if you have them. From the factory it is printed on a small card which often gets lost as the vehicle changes hands.

If you have lost thos code you can only obtain the code from a dealer by

1) Removing the stereo and getting the serial no that is stamped or printed on the back of it

2) Bringing this serial along with your cars VIN identifier (Chassis no) to a VW dealer who will run the numbers and give you the code you need to unlock the stereo.

Hope this helps.

How do you reset a non original radio 1998 camry


Wandm mmy friend it would be a major help if you could tell me the make and model of your radio. I will say this, most aftermarket radios have a 3 shot counter. What that means is after 3tmes youll have to let it sit with the key on(acc) for usually. 2to3hours before it will accept anymore attemps.

What is procedure to reset radio after new battery has been fitted to BMW 318i 2004 mod


When you turn on your CAR, the radio will say CODE... Enter your 4 digit number and your radio will start working.

If you do not have the Code, look in your Owners Manual for the Card.

If the Card is not there, slide the Radio out and get the Serial Number and call the BMW Dealership for the Code..

2006 gxp wont start due to anti theft system what to do?


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery or dead battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzz kill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio, which will also bring your whole car back to life.
