I just had the battery replaced in my 2003 Jetta, and the radio is stuck on 88.3 FM.  I have the code but cannot get into safe mode to enter it.  How do I get to safe mode???

Hi apassehl, Try to press and hold the SEEK and SCAN buttons simultaneosly until "1000" lights up in the display. Then use the station buttons 1 to 4 to input your code. 1 to input the first digit, 2 to input the second, and so on. After the code is entered, press and hold the SEEK and SCAN buttons again until "SAFE" reappears. Hope this helps!

Thanks. I've tried that as well as removing the fuse and nothing has worked! Tonight I will try disconnecting the battery to see if that resets the radio... I'll try your method once more though and will report back with what works.
