here ya go,

You have to press TA & TP together, then the 1000 appears and you enter the code using the 1-4 buttons then press TA & TP again to confirm (it's a BETA 4 radio).

If it is the current Beta proceed as follows: 1. Switch on: Display reads "SAFE" 2. Enter code using button "1" to enter the first digit of code, button "2" to enter the second digit etc. 3. When all 4 digits of the code are correctly display, press either the manual setting rocker (>) or the search (>>) button for more than 2 seconds. Then release. 4. The radio should then play. If it does not, press either the "FM" or "CC" button. Hope this helps.

AnswerI have a 1997 VW Jetta, I had work done on it and the radio went in to SAFE mode. I accidently entered the wrong code 2 or 3 times and now I can't get it back to BETA mode to enter the code I have.

What can I do?

AnswerOnce you have your 4 digit code and the radio is set to 1000. You put the code in one at a time until you have entered all of them starting from the first digit 1. My 1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition's code is 0986. After I entered the code, I pressed the seek button for at least 2 seconds and the radio immediately began to play.

Answer:

If your jetta has SEEK/SCAN and buttons, press SEEK with the lower >, 1000 appears, enter your code, press SEEK and > again for about 2 seconds..radio will start playing.

The Code is on the Radio, or in the Spare tirewell! if it is not on the radio, remove the radio, call dealer and give them the radio serial number and your VIN number. Some Dealers like to charge for this, most do not.

The code needed to reset the radio is the model number on top of the radio. The you must call a Honda dealer to get the code. If you are the original owenr or have the owners manual, the code may be in the written in the manual. i need to know how to enter the code on the radio the radio reads ERR 3

Enter the five digit code, and then punch "sc" on your radio control knob. Your radio station key buttons are used as the key punch for identical number as marked.

I just had this same problem with my 1998 VW Jetta. My parking brake light came on one day, but only half illuminated. Shortly after my windshield wipers and headlights stopped working. My radio works but the fans don't work either. I just found a thread which seems to point the problem at the ignition switch: http://car.justanswer.com/volkswagen/6uht-1998-volkswagen-jetta-headlights

In these cars the alarm system works in cojunction with the factory radio. If your problem is that you installed an aftermarket radio the system will not work properly. You can reset this control units by disconnecting them from power for about ten seconds. good luck.
