    Hi mate,

    I think if you hold scan and the RDS buttons at the same time it should come up...i think...

    Try this for safe mode code. you will need to hold down the fm2 and the rds button at the same time untill the word SAFE flashes then the screen will say 1000. then you use the numbers 1234 to change the correct digit in the 1000. once you have the correct numbers you hold down the fm2 and the rds again together untill the word SAFE appears then your good to go.
    hopefully thats some help........

    ok i have solved what you have to do......

    basically you have to leave the stereo turned on in the car for over an hour. I just turned the stereo on and locked the car and left it.

    When i went back an over an hour later, the screen said code safe instead of code safe 2

    pressed a button and it asked me to enter the code.
    Badadbing!

    so if anyone else has this problem, now you know!
