SOURCE: my vauxhall stereo is stuck on safe mode how do i

1. turn ignition on (dash warning lights on)
2. If radio turned on, turn it off.
3. Press AS button in, and hold it in while turning radio on.
4. Wait approx 10 seconds (do not release AS button).
5. Radio should beep, and display should now read 10 - - - - (assuming no tries have been made in the past with the wrong code)
6. use pre-set button "1" to scroll the first digit in the display to the number you want (it goes 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 then back to 0)
7. Use pre-set "2" for second digit, etc.
8. Once display reads 10 followed by the four digit security code press and hold AS button for about 10 seconds, until the radio beeps.
9. If correct code entered display will now read "code" briefly, followed by"memory-U" briefly, then radio will reprogram it self.
10. If radio goes back to "safe" the code number is incorrect, or you mis-keyed it.

Note: entering the code incorrectly 10 times will render the radio useless.
After the first 3 tries you need to leave the radio on and the ignition on for increasingly long periods of time before it will let you try again. 7 safe need you to wait at least 30 mins, and more like 1 hour.

WARNING - you only have a max of 10 attempts to get it right, but if still no luck after the 8th attempt, STOP and contact a Vaux dealer.

Vw polo classic radio stucked in safe mode even after entering the radio code? i tried it over n over again nd it goes through the same process of safe1 nd safe2 respectively? plz help


If you kept putting in the code and it went into Safe mode...did you not consider that the code was wrong?
Every time you put in the wrong code, the stereo will lock you out for longer each time...in fact, some units will never work again unless specialist replaces security chip.
You need to verify the stereo code by either using a code cracker...ebay...or..go to your local trusted Garage and let them sort it for you.

I own a 98 jetta, I just completed some major engine work . But now I can't start it and the radio says safe mode.... whats up?


(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.

My battery died and now that I put a new battery my stereo is stuck on a safe mode, how do I unlock it?


You should have a code that came with the owners manual to put in the stereo, if not you`ll have to call dealer for instructions.

I have a vauxhall vivaro and I have the code however i cant get it out of safe mode - i have tried holding down AS button for 3 seconds and switching the stereo off and then on etc and nothing has worked?...


Hiya,
I did this last week for a Vivaro that I have just bought.
This will defo get it out of safe mode and will get it working again If you have the code... Switch engine on with stereo off. Hold down AS button then turn the stereo on...safe mode should dissapear then press number one until the right digit is in the box and continue until the 4 digits are in. Then hold AS down then turn the stereo off again.

If you don't have the code contact the dealer for it usually £25 or buy the code online if you get the code number from the back of the stereo. Look for Grundig stereo codes or something like that online, there are loads on ebay.

Anyway

Good luck

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

Dealer needs to give you the code, unless its in the documentation you recieved for the car. you will have to prove ownership to the dealer, but itsx not a big deal
