My code for my radio doesnt work keeps staying in safe mode

If the radio is an OEM Volkswagen can give you the code using the VIN number. If the radio is not the original the only way you'll be able to get the code is from the manufacture using the model# and the serial number.

Safe mode car radio

You'll need to phone up the dealer and give them the year, make, model and vin # then ask them for the radio code and follow their given radio reset procedures, or have them do it for you.

Safe mode car radio

To unlock your VW factory radio from "SAFE" mode, you will need to enter the radio code. Typically, the code is written on a radio card included with the documentation for the vehicle when the car is first sold.

If you don't have the code, or have lost it, you can retrieve it by visiting your VW dealer. You will need the car's VIN number and the serial number of the radio (located on the body of the radio).

The procedure to enter the code is as follows:

Press the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously and hold them until "1000" appears on the radio display. Release the buttons as soon as this number appears.

Refer to your Radio Card and use the station preset buttons ("1", "2", "3" and "4") to input the code. Press the "1" button repeatedly to input the first digit, the "2" button to input the second digit, etc.

Press and hold the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously until "SAFE" appears again. Release, and the radio should be unlocked.

Do not enter the wrong code more than three times, or the radio will lock itself. Note the dealer can also enter the code for you (they may charge a small fee).

My radio is in safe mode i have no manuel

The radio usually goes into safe mode when the power to the radio is interrupted. You will need to know the radio "code" in oreder to re-program the radio. The code may either be found in your owner's manual if it was written there, or by going to the VW dealer. he will need the serial number for the radio (found on the rear of the radio) and the VIN number for your car. In some years the radio code was also put on a sticker inside the trunl by the spare tire, but maybe not in 1998.
