Your 1998 vw passat radio will not work it says safe when you start the car and then just shows 1000 what is wrong with it?
That mean the radio its asking for "the code" code that you could get sometimes in your owners manual. Some other manufacturers used to write that code ina small label indernead the astray,.. and in some cases you have to call the dealer where you got the car form,.. They should have that code in their files,.... P.S,.. Some europian cars have the code in the back of the stereo, wich you will have to take off in order to get it. Hope this hepls you,.. The Stig
