Safe mode. Need to know where i can download code

After removing the wrong fuse for another problem my VdO CDR 500 reverted to the safe mode. I bought car secondhand and code did not come with the documents. Is there any software i can download to get the code if i remove the radio and input the serial number. Regards Pat

Just had the same problem. Removing the radio is first problem - you need a special kit which you can buy from halfords, or get friendly mechanic to do it for you. Then get your Code by inputting serial number (written on metal of radio NOT label) into one of the websites (I got mine from IRC UK) but you will probably have to pay for this. When you have the code do this: 1. switch radio off (with keys in ignition) so date and time are showing. 2. Hold down main volume/on/off button at same time as holding AS button for about 5 secs. 3. Insert your Code by pressing button 1 for first number (ie if first number is 6 you need to press button 1 six times), button 2 for second number, etc. 4. when you have inserted all 4 number of the code you got from the website/garage hold down the AS button on its own.
This worked for me!

Vdo cdr 500 locked in safe mode from too many attempts to enter the code (now have the correct code)


Leave it SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

This may take several hours as the waiting time doubles after each wrong code.

However normally it is only an hour or two

HAD BATTERIE OFF ON TURNING ON RADIO AS VDO CDR 500


It is saying SAFE because a wrong code has been entered.

Try leaving it SWITCHED ON ...UNDISTURBED for an hour or two and it should reset itself.

As you have already had it recoded, then if your  new code does NOT work , then the radio will have to be recoded again....or buy a cheap replacement radio off Ebay


Good luck !
