How do you use radio code for 1995 vw passat to get radio out of safe mode

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:

The sequence of programming for 1995 VW Passat radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "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 push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for 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 for use!

List of items covered by 200000km service for a 1992 vw passat 2 litre problem starting the car at times happens instantly other times with a problem labour in starting

I'd get the front end alignment checked, and get a compression check done on the motor, go through all serviceable fluids (changed out), check or any rust. For the hard starting ... check the battery. It should give out a little over ~13.2V without load. Also, take some sandpaper, and rub the terminals down bright and shiny, and then rub down the connectors until they are pretty shiny, too. That should help get some more juice.

When do i need to change a timing belt on a 1995 1.9td umwelt vw passat estate it has done 140000 miles with fsh should it be due soon?

Most US cars recommend change at 60,000 miles. I would say that you have gotten your money's worth out of the original belt. Some engines suffer piston and valve damage if the belt breaks.

95 passat vr6 giving problems

Adjust or replace the shiftlock sensor. It unlocks the shifting mechanism when you put your foot on the brake.

If there is an ignition problem, the tumbler will need replacement soon. This can be caused by an overloaded keychain. Best to do it now while it still is working, then have it fail and leave you stranded.

Car has intermitten starting issues

when it is acting like it does not want to start, have someone or your self go to the battery and feel the red wire, if it is getting hot, you have a loose connection. check your hot and ground connetions.
