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.

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

Louise
