Default 1998 A6 /SAFE MODE on Radio

[size=7][size=6][center]Hello....... I've got a very stressful problem on my hands I was at a car wash yesterday and some how water got into my engine and into the Battery Housing (It took 45 minutes to dry out[:@]) I had to disconnect my Battery and get my uncle to come and give me a jump start before the vehicle actually started, even though the electrical system seemed to work fine (The lights, Seats, Windows, etc.) The display indicated that the vehicle was fine after I jump started it and none of the warning lights came on.......However I do have two very fustrating problems the first one being that the Gauges for the heater/Air conditioner is now reading in Celcius instead of Degrees I read the manual and fixed it back to the way that I wan't it to be, but it now blinks repeatedly for about 10 minutes......The other issue is the radio...It's currently stating that it's on "Safe" Mode I'm assuming that It's do to the theft protection system...but the crazy thing is that aren't any steps on how to unlock it (i.e. what buttons are needed to be pressed to initiate the process) I've read that a four digit code is needed to unlock the car but I purchased the car from a small dealer in VA who got it from another dealership in NY who got as a trade in..(you get the idea) I was wondering where if anywhere I can get this code and how can I tell the vehicle that I wan't to unlock it?

Could Someone please help me, Because I could imagine that the Dealer's gonna charge me and arm and a leg for something that there gonna do in 5 min.
