Pulled radio to get serial # and now I can't get the radio to go into code input mode. it just says "safe" and the icon for pause is on


If you've entered a bad code a couple times, you need to wait an hour while the radio and ignition are on. Then, turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed. Then Press the FM1 button and hold it down, then while holding down the FM1 button, press and hold the AM buttons so that both buttons are held down simultaneously. Release the buttons. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (one through 4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button "two" changes the second digit in the code 1"0" "three" 00, button changes the third digit, button 4 changes the last digit in the code. In most cases the first digit is a 1 and won't need to be changed. You push each pre-set station button multiple times to step through the digits (1-9) to get the correct code displayed.
Code 1246 would entered by pushing button "2" two times, pushing button 3 four times, and pushing button 4, six times.

After entering the correct security code, push and hold down the FM1 and AM button simultaneously as before until SAFE is displayed, then release the 2 buttons, and now the radio should now work.

I have code '0832' for radio Beta /Passat 1999, but i can't enter it , what the methode?


Hello! If the battery has been disconnected and the radio was not changed the system will clear on its own...It takes 1 hour, with the radio on, to reset itself...However, here is the procedure...

1. Turn on the Radio... "Safe" will appear in the display...
2. After 3 seconds, the number "1000" will appear in the display....
3. Use the radio station preset buttons 1 to 4 to enter the code number...
Use preset button 1 to enter the first digit in the code number. Use button 2 to enter the second digit, etc... The value range for each of the 4 digits is "0-9"... The digit will increase by 1 each time you tap the preset button... The number returns to "0" after 9"...
4. After you finish entering the code, press the right side (">") of the SEEK button for longer than 2 seconds until you hear an audible signal...
5. If you have entered the code number correctly, "LSM" wlll appear in the display...

If you entered a wrong code number, "SAFE" will appear in the display... Initially it'll flash, then stay on...

You can repeat the procedure again one time...If the wrong code number is entered again, the unit will be disabled for 1 hour... Leave the unit on and the key in the ignition...

Entering radio codes for a 1998 passet


If you don't have MODE and SCAN buttons ( I didn't ) you can try as above but with TP and TA - they worked for me.

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.

Radio code


If you don't have the radios security code, you can try entering 1111 as some replacement radios were coded with this security code. Your local Audi Dealer may be able to provide the correct security code for your vehicle, if you provide them with your vehicles Identification Number (VIN). This VIN is typically located on the drivers door pillar.

The radio should have a serial number on the unit which also can be given to the Audi dealer and checked in their data base of radio security codes. The serial number will start with AUZ, one radio serial number for example is AUZ1Z9A1965412.

To enter the code on the Wiesbaden Radio: Turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed.
Push and hold the AM/FM button, then while holding the AM button down, push and hold down the SCAN button. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons, and the display should show 1000. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (1-4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button 2 changes the second digit in the code 1"0"00, button 3 changes the third digit, button 4 changes the last digit in the code. In most cases the first digit is a 1 and won't need to be changed. You push each pre-set station button multiple times to step through the digits (1-9) to get the correct code displayed.

Code 1246 would entered by pushing button "2" two times, pushing button 3 four times, and pushing button 4, six times.

After entering the correct security code, push and hold down the AM/FM button, then while holding down the AM/FM button, push and hold down the SCAN button. The display will then show SAFE, release the two buttons, and now the radio should play correctly.
