Code radio


In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

I have code '0832' for radio Beta /Passat 1999, but i can't enter it , what the methode?


Hello! If the battery has been disconnected and the radio was not changed the system will clear on its own...It takes 1 hour, with the radio on, to reset itself...However, here is the procedure...

1. Turn on the Radio... "Safe" will appear in the display...
2. After 3 seconds, the number "1000" will appear in the display....
3. Use the radio station preset buttons 1 to 4 to enter the code number...
Use preset button 1 to enter the first digit in the code number. Use button 2 to enter the second digit, etc... The value range for each of the 4 digits is "0-9"... The digit will increase by 1 each time you tap the preset button... The number returns to "0" after 9"...
4. After you finish entering the code, press the right side (">") of the SEEK button for longer than 2 seconds until you hear an audible signal...
5. If you have entered the code number correctly, "LSM" wlll appear in the display...

If you entered a wrong code number, "SAFE" will appear in the display... Initially it'll flash, then stay on...

You can repeat the procedure again one time...If the wrong code number is entered again, the unit will be disabled for 1 hour... Leave the unit on and the key in the ignition...

Landrover cassette display appear "SAFE" This cassette model is XQE500550.How can fix safe mode.


If you have the correct radio code for the unit, just wait about an hour with the power on in the radio. The screen will eventually display (code) or (enter code) follow the directions in your radio manual to enter the code and the radio will be operational again. The safe mode is on because either the radio fuse blew, the battery was too low on charge or the radio was momentarilly disconnected from it's power source. Most common is low battery voltage. Charge your vehicle battery, locate the radio code, wait till radio displays CODE and enter the code an have happy tunes again.

Error message on my ford radio


Yes - there is a solution here.

The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio. Any interruption causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.

If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!

Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!

Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature - not just Ford.

Thanks for using FixYa,

How to reset the raido


Hello,

There is a trick to the procedure. You have to turn the key to position 1 or the first stop on the ignition. Turn on the radio and wait between 2.0 to 3.0 hours for the radio to reset and ask for the code. From the owners manual. My 97 takes between 2:25 and 2.5 hours to reset. Every radio is different.

To enter the code:

After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on.
Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered, "on" is displayed and the set is ready to use.
If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.

Incorrect code

If an incorrect code has been entered "rPt" is displayed. Enter the correct code.
After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours.
"OFF" is displayed.

During this waiting period:

the battery must be connected
the ignition key must be turned to position I
the unit must be turned on
Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain (please refer to page 2:6 for information on turning the headlights off). Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.

Goodluck!

Original stereo in audi 1991 90


i have the original book it says anytime the battery is disconnected it will do the lock up and read SAF on the display when this happens you cant use it again untill you unlock it... to unlock it turn the radio on the word safe will be displayed first press the am/fm button and then press the scan button and hold them down simultaneously until "1000" appears in the frequuency display release the buttons DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE CONTINUE HOLDINT THE BUTTONS DOWN OR PRESS THEM ONCE AGAIN THIS WILL CAUSE THE RADIO TO TAKE THE NUMBER "1000" AS THE CODE NUMBER. using the first four radio station buttons enter the code number found on your radio card (the codes you have) use button 1 to set the first digit of the code button 2 to set the second digit etc. the first digit of a four digit code must be "1" if your code number has three digits the first digit on the display must be set blank. Once the code is shown on the display press and hold the am/fm button and scan button simultaneously until the work safe appears in the frequency display release the buttons a radio station frequency will automatically be displayed ... MAKE SURE YOU PUT IN THE RIGHT NUMBER OR YOU WILL LOCK UP THE RADIO AGAIN AFTER 2 TRYS AND WILL HAVE TO WAIT AN HOUR BEFORE YOU CAN RETRY IT. IF YOU LOOSE THE CARD WITH THE NUMBER SEE YOUR AUDI DEALER
