(STEREO-SAFE MODE ) Look on the (Stereo Booklet) It has a Vehicle stereo code card in the front page. Type the four digit code as it tells you in the instructions. If you don't have the booklet call the dealer and tell them to give you the code it should be free.

Actually pull out the radio fuse for 15 seconds and then re-install. Mine usta just quit working once in a great while, and this was the fix. Radio fuse #42 if this is a "New Jetta A4 body" or fuse # 22 on an older "A3 body style"

If you buy another factory radio it'll need the unlock code to work with your factory alarm system. But if you go with an after market radio it'll work just fine, your alarm will just think there's no radio installed.

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.

Radio in SAFE mode


Hey.. i just had the same thing happen... bought a 1994 Jetta.. radio in safe mode... so i went online and found out.. hold scan mode and the arrows after your preset station button.. then after like 3 secs or so you'll see " 000" on the display.. use the preset buttons.. 1,2,3, and 4 to change the display to enter your code :D if you lost your code go to VW dealer and pull radio out and see service center .. carry VIN code in as well and they can look up your code.. takes like 5 mins and is FREE,,, man i love that word :D
