"SAFE" means the radio needs a security code entered before the radio will work again. The security code should have come with the car in one of the handbooks. Perhaps call the dealer and see if you give the the VIN number of the car they can give you the security code but I know VW, Acura and other car manufacturers require the radio to be removed to get the chassis umber of the radio, what a pain!!!!
I can get you the radio code for you if you will send me your radio serial# and the vehicle VIN#. Send to
Thanks MJ
