If you have the radio boo kthat came with the car, there should be a card in there with the code and insructions. If not, you have to take it to an audi dealer like i did, thats your only two options unless you change the whole raio system wich wouls be pointless.

I need help unlocking my 99 vw passat stock radio, changed the battery and now my radio won't turn on.and i do not have the radio code..can anyone help me


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from a VW dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for a 1999 VW Passat radio is:
1. Simultaneously push "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then simultaneously push again "SCAN" and "RDS" keys to confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

The radio is now ready to use!

each radio has a code about 13 digits and maybe a couple letters mixed in with it. You have to get code from original manual. I heard if you lose it its very difficult to get.again but is possible. Its only a safety procedure in case someone else stole the radio it won't work for them.

Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.


The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.
