Griffin SmartDeck shutting off my car stereo?

I have a 2001 VW Passat with the Monsoon system. My new Griffin SmartDeck seems be shutting off my car stereo quite often, and when I start the stereo again, a "Safe" message appears on the face of the Monsoon stereo. Help? Is the iPod sending some sort of bad signal back to the stereo?

Many modern stereos are very sensitive to the amount of tension on the tape adapter. To much and the head unit thinks you are at the end of the tape, to little and the head unit thinks there is no tape in the head unit.

Perhaps your head unit thinks it has reached the end of the tape and automatically shuts off? Check your owners manual to see if there is any way to change the settings on your cassette player.
