I drive a VW polo and a safe cp code has come up on the dash

This answer was rated:

I drive a VW polo and a safe cp code has come up on the dash disabling my media services. Is the car still safe to drive until I get it MOT’d this week?
JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?
Customer: along the front of the radio it says ‘component protection active’ and across my dash it says ‘SAFE CP’ the internal dash lights are flashing. I am unsure how to reset.
JA: What is the model/year of your Volvo?
Customer: It is Volkswagen Polo 2018
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have tried nothing yet
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No
