Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
But I need the code to unlock stereo from safe mode (had to replace battery)
Can you help or do I need to contact a VW dealership????
I assume you have this unlocked by now, but here's an answer for someone else for the future :-)
if you have the original radio that come with the car, look in the wheel well in the trunk, where the spare tire goes. (yep, you'll need to stand on your head). there is a sticker that will have the 4-digit code on it.
enter that into the radio.
I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is, but either the >> Scan or the am/fm button will be the "enter key"

Hello, I understand there's a universal code got vw radios. I've been told that code is either 1111 or 1122, try that and see if it works. My problem is I have the safe code numbers but need to know how to set radio to 1000 so I can put the right code in. Ed

You can take the serial number from the radio to your local VW dealer and they can call in to get your code. Then write the code number in your owners manual.
