    We bought a passat from someone and had no radio code.However they did have alot of old workorders from where they had things done at the dealers and in the comment section on these we found the code listed . It will start with RC then 4 numbers. Hopefully at some time the car was taken to a dealer and you have some old paperwork to look at. Good Luck

THE MANUFACTURE USUALLY SETS THESE CODES TO SOMETHING SIMPLE. LOOK IN THE GLOVE BOX, CENTER CONSOLE, OR THE SIDE OF THE UNIT FOR THE MANUFACTURES CODE, IF YOU CAN'T FIND IT TRY 0000 OR 1111

If you call Volkswagen dealer they will be able to tell you thee code and are supposed to provide this service free of charge.
If you have the original owners manual you should check the audio booklet for this information also.
All codes are different. You can only try so many times before it is locked permanently

How can I start my 2006 vw passt? Just got out of shop they fixed steering column was locked worked for a week. Now when I put the key in all lights and radio come on but car doesn't turn over. It's...


If it's just had work done on the steering lock I would suspect that the ignition wiring has come adrift in the steering column. If the lights and radio are working the battery is probably OK. As part of the procedure for replacing/fixing the steering lock all ignition connectors are usually removed from the switch, perhaps one has come loose and fallen off the terminal connector.

Please after changing the battery of my VOLVO v40 1999 wagon car the radio requested code can you help me


This is a anti-theft device built into your radio designed to foil robbers. When the radio looses power, the radio locks up. This makes the radio worthless on the black market. The thieves know this and don't steal it as a result. Your owners manual tells you to clear the code if there will be a power loss (changing the battery). There may not be a recovery procedure.

In the GM (1995) version of this system, there is no recovery (if there were, what would be the point of the system?). I don't know the specifics of the Volvo system. You may want to talk to your dealer before you replace your radio. I am sure you will have to prove ownership of the vehicle.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com this morning.

My radio is locked. Have code but radio is off


Try to disconnect the battery negative terminal, then the positive terminal. Leave the terninals disconnected for about .30-minutes to clear the radio's memory.

After thirty minutes, connect back the negative terminal of the battery, then the positive terminal.

Then enter the radio code and see what happens. If it still fails to turn-on, then repeat the procedure.

Battery terminals are loose or have corrosion on them. Check both main battery lead's at the battery and + where it is connected to the starter and - where it connect's to the body and engine.
