1 Answer


Hi! I'm a not-so-proud owner of an '02 Cabrio, and my stereo goes bonkers every few months and I have to program it out of 'SAFE' mode. The four digit code is located in the owner's manual, in the section concerning the stereo (the last section in the manual if I recall correctly). Every car's code is different and there is a not too complicated procedure as to what buttons to push in what order, also in the manual's stereo section. They don't physically put it anywhere on the stereo because that would defeat the purpose of the security code. Without that code you are pretty screwed, no doubt. My code is 0353 and I know that because I've had to enter it so many times. So realize it could be any four digits and that means 10,000 combinations are possible. I keep my manual in the car so I don't have the combination of buttons you must push to exit 'SAFE' mode right here, but if you are checking here regularly I will too and lay out the procedure. Without the code your quest will be fruitless, and I'm sorry about that. Good luck and check back here if you find the code but not the procedure -- I'll give it to you!
