98 VW Beetle Check Engine light

Could be a lot of things, take it to autozone. More than likely they can scan the code for you, they can't tell you exactly what is wrong but they can steer you in the right direction. Give them a call to see if they are able to scan the codes on your VW. Good luck.

How do I turn the radio safety mode off? There is no scan ">" in my radio model nor the reset key as suggested by other experts

you will need to pull out the radio to get the serial number on the side. there is a sticker, write down all the numbers and take it to the dealer(vw), they should give you the code without too much hassle.
