Flat battery - radio now inactive

My car battery went flat while I was waiting with the radio on waiting for someone with the engine off. Now the car radio/ cassette player won't work and the LED display just states "SAFE" instead of any radio station or mode.Can I re-set this to reactivate the radio/ cassette player?

SOURCE: led lights do not work on radio/cd player. no station/time displ

Work in car audio for a living. dodge caravan's are notorious for having there cd player's **** out. if the led display is out the built in reducers for the display power supply are more then likely shot. head to a junk yard and pull one out if you want to keep it stock :)
can prob get it from them for about 20 buck's and it will plug right in were the old one did. or you can go after market head unit (125-900$ at any electronic's store) buy a harness (about 18$) and a mounting kit (25$) for the easyist install :)
hope this helped

SOURCE: safe mode on Grundig 200 car radio, do not know where to find serial number.

Grundig 200 car radio can decode in the next way:

First step: Switch off the radio and the ignition as well.
Second step: Push the AS button and keep it pushed, at the same time turn on the ignition.

After this you will hear a beep sound. Now you can release the AS button.

Now you can enter the code in the next way: The first number can be set with the button ''1'', the second number of your code can be set with button ''2'' and so on. By pushing the ''1'',''2'',3'',''4'' buttons the value indicated in the screen will be increased by one. So if the first number of your code is 5 then you have to push the button ''1'' 5 times.

if this doesnt work then it will be cheaper to buy a new car radio contact me and let me no how you get on :)

Oh and the serial number is either engraved on the side of the unit or an actual sticker which is in the format you describe. You'll need to remove the unit from the dashboard to be able to get access to this.

SOURCE: 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.

Because the battery went flat. Most likely need a code from the dealership to make the radio work again.

My bettery went flat on my rover 45 impressions 02 plate now my radio wants a code it just say code wait on the display. can any1 help me plz


Try '0000'. If not, you need to take it to a car audio specialist. I have also read that if you remove the radio and put it in a freezer bag in the freezer for 24 hours, it clears the memory!

Sometimes removing battery will mean the radio has to be re-coded on re-placing the battery.
You may this same situation if your battery went completely flat.

the remote may have come un-synchronised. (Due to a heavy knock or interference from a radio transmitter source. Like someones speed radar detector, or when the battery went flat.)

Consult your dealer on the synchronising process. This is an involved process but easy enough to do yourself at home!

key code lock out usually happens when you have entered the wrong code too many times leaving the battery connected should allow the timer to run down for 30 mins so you can try again, it is cumulative though so the more you get it wrong the longer you have to wait. make sure battery is fully charged first.
