the radio code would be on a card with the original owners manual. If you do not have the original owners manual or bought the vehicle second hand, the only way to get the code will be by going to your local VW dealer with the serial number/ownership slip and paying to get the code.
Call the Volkswagen dealer and give him the Vin# of the Volkswagen and they will be able to look it up and give you the code for your Volkswagen. The Vin# is located on the lower drivers side windshield looking in........Hope this helps.
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 2004 Volkswagen 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!
You do not need to take the dash apart, there are two little slots oneon each side of the face of the radio, you need special removal tools to unlock it and it will pull right out, but first check in your owners manual, or in the spare tire well for the card, or sticker which has the serial number as well as the unlock code for your radio.
Take out the radio. sometimes the code has been written on it. It also might be written on the owners manual. If not, take the radio and your VIN (vehicle identification number) to the dealer with proof of ownership of the car. If you are nice to them they just might give you the code. My local dealership gave my code to me like this.
