Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
We just bought a 98 Beetle ... radio is in "safe mode" ... we have the code ... but after you enter it nothing happens ... are we supposed to press some button after entering the code?
I've had this happen twice when the battery died. It goes into the SAFE 2 mode if you try entering it and don't do it right and then you have to leave the radio on for 1 1/2 hours to have it come on to 1000 and then set it with each number one at a time and then hold down right reset until he beeps on. So, if you are discouraged as I was, the answer is to leave it on with the SAFE showing for over an hour and it probably will come on with the 1000 for setting eventually.
