You should have received a security code in the intital paperwork for your car. Assuming that is lost, its near impossible to "guess" from the 10,000 possible codes because of "progressive lock out" when you guess wrong codes (1min for first one, then doubling each time).

If its not the original radio, then sometimes people write the code on the unit when transferring it, but thats a long shot, and you'll need two U pins (or two bends of wire coathanger) to remove the radio to check.

Failing that, its a trip to the dealers, who can get the information for you (based on vehicle identification plate etc), but that costs.

Another alternative is to look for a second hand one on eBay ... just check the listing includes the relevant code, or you are back where you started. Changing the radio over takes less than five minutes with the right tools (again available on eBay for around a pound)

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.

The code should have came with the radio. I do not remember the radios in the 97 G/C coming with coded radios. I had a new 97 G/C. Is this an after market radio?

Radio code

I had a new cd player fitted to my 97 discovery and that did. Raido codes are free, providing you can prove ownership. Just visit a main landrover dealer, they got mine in about 10 minites.
