Pls I cant unlock the radio grunding for my smart car


Safe mode means that you have tried many times with the wrong code , you have to wait for a short while so that it will allow you to put the code again. Usually it is 30 minutes while ignition is on.

Try to get the correct code from this link MERCEDES BENZ CAR RADIO CODES

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).

I push in the wrong radio code 3x on my 2001 audi now its stuck on safe mode and wont let me in to push in the right code


First of all you should exit from safe mode. Then turn ON the radio and let it turned ON for at least one hour, in order to exit from safe mode.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from a VW dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of a 2001 Audi Concert radio programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

The radio is now ready for use!

How do you unlock safe modeon a 1998 vw bettle i have the code and enter it correctly is it possible i could find the code somewhere else besides the dealer


you can get the radio recoded by an independent recoder, look in the yellow pages for radio de-coders they normally come out to you, costs about £20 to £40 some are cheaper.

normally when it says safe mode if you leave the power on the radio for 1 hour safe mode should disable if it is not doing this then it may be faulty.

Regards
Dan
p.s if you cannot locate a re-coder please send me your postcode or area and I will find you one near by.
