It says SAFE because wrongcodes have been entered

To restore from SAFE  leave the radio SWITCHED ON ...UNDISTURBED until it automatically resets itself,(This could take an hour or more)


Code Entry Instructions depend on the make of radio and car.

Many can be found here for free

http://www.radio-code.co.uk/code-entry-help.php


=================================================

Make sure you are using the correct code.

If in doubt then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING

Also quote the MAKE of CAR

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

My 2002 Honda Odyssey recently needed a jump start. Now my radio has a "C" on it and will not start. I tried using the radio code, but that didn't work either. Any suggestions?


the radio wont start? you meant PLAY.
that is because you lost the secret code, the opr. guide warned you .
the new car came with a green radio code card. sure lost.
so where did you get your code. ib bet off the silly internet. the web of lies? sure.... ????

the nice honda book (glove box,) shows you how to back up (paper) the day one code, goes i wish my jeep had that.
it says that and if posted the full pages, here 27times, on this forum
just for honda's , since they are so friendly that way, allowing you to do that....

quoted 28 times now: see below.
De'ja' vu , all over again. (LOL) RTM
RTM read the operators manual, its all there, here is a direct quote.

true for all cars, really all modern cars, 2001 to now. about. read your operator guide)


2008 opr.guide.(lost it, huh?) Accord. non satellite Radio. NAV system has own code. , all cars.... 2008 direct quote.

Quotes:
Your vehicle's audio system may disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code with the preset buttons.
Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from the five
digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.

You should have received a radio code card that lists your audio system's code and serial numbers. {glove box find}
It is best to store this card in a safe place at home. In addition, you should write the audio system's serial number in this owner's manual.

If you lose the card, you must obtain the code number from your dealer.
To do this, you will need the audio system's serial number.

If your vehicle's battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio
fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens,
you will see ''ENTER CODE'' in the frequency display (on the screen on models with navigation system) the next time you turn on the system.
Use the preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. The code is on the radio code card included in your owner's manual kit.
When it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.

If you make a mistake entering the code, do not start over; complete the
five-digit sequence, then enter the correct code. You have 10 tries to enter the correct code.
If you are unsuccessful in 10 attempts, you
must then leave the system on for 1 hour before trying again.

The system will retain your AM and FM presets even if power is disconnected. {only on newer cars'

General information on Honda and DIY:

{the code can be obtained from any Honda dealership (you must give him/her your radio serial number (sticker off radio)"}
or any locksmith with a license from..NASTIF

How do i get the audi radio off safe mode?


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for yours Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer! For Audi Concert the sequence of programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed. The radio is now ready for use!

Please rate my response. Thanks!

Landrover cassette display appear "SAFE" This cassette model is XQE500550.How can fix safe mode.


If you have the correct radio code for the unit, just wait about an hour with the power on in the radio. The screen will eventually display (code) or (enter code) follow the directions in your radio manual to enter the code and the radio will be operational again. The safe mode is on because either the radio fuse blew, the battery was too low on charge or the radio was momentarilly disconnected from it's power source. Most common is low battery voltage. Charge your vehicle battery, locate the radio code, wait till radio displays CODE and enter the code an have happy tunes again.

Okay. So my 1995 Volkswagen stereo is in safe mode and everytime i press the two buttons, it just blinks and won't let me enter the code anymore. How do I fix it?


With the radio in safe mode, you have to disconnect the battery again to reset the radio so you can enter the right radio code. If you don't have the radio code or it's wrong, keep me posted. be glad to help you get your radio working again. Good luck, friend.

Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.


The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.

Reset Car Radio for Opel Corsa Njoy


Try this..Turn your radio off, take the fuse out (for the radio) for one minute. Replace it and turn the switch on. Turn the radio on and enter the code. If this dosnt work you may have the wrong code. If you enter the wrong code 3 times it may lock and you will have to wait an hour before entering again.

Instructions to unlock stereo


THIS WAS POSTED ON THE AUDI TT CLUB WEB SITE.

Turn on the radio. The word "SAFE" appears on the display.

* Press the FM2 and RDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display. Release buttons. Do not, under any circumstances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to consider the number "1000" to be the input code number.

Use stations buttons 1 - 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card.( THE RADIO CODE SHOULD BE WITH THE OWNERS MANUAL-??) Use button 1 to enter the first digit of the code number, button 2 to enter the second digit, and so on. Station buttons 5 and 6 cannot be used.

* Once the code is shown in the display, press the FM2 and RDS buttons again simultaneously and hold them down until the word "SAFE" appears on the display. Soon afterwards, a frequency will be displayed.

(If you do not have the "Radio Code", the Audi dealer, or someone, will have to pull the radio out to get the serial number off of the back.)

The radio can now be used again.

Hi does it just show SAFE or a number then SAFE?


ie: 6 SAFE
?

if it does show a number first this is the attempts that you have left to enter the code.

double check that you are getting the ignition voltage to the radio. other than that, you may have a faulty unit.#
