    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

Radio won't work. reset battery and it works until you shut the car off, then won't come back on.


May be it needs complete reprogramming.

To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

2002 vw passat epc light comes on and when slowing down engine shuts down showing code 0322 what is my problem


Code P0322 states: Ignition/ Distributor Engine speed input circuit NO SIGNAL. the sensor is on the left side(as you sit in the vehicle) of the engine block near the transmission flange. Know this, codes do not tell you if the part is bad necessarily just where to look. Wires and connectors can fail too. I don't know how to test this sensor without a scan tool, the good kind. Which i don't have.

I have a VW Passat 2006 2.0L FSI. I replaced the battery. How do I get the radio code?


There was a tear out tag in the owner's manual. If you do not have this tag you must visit a VW dealer and have them remove the radio to retrieve the serial number of the unit. This will allow them to find the code on VW's database. Hint; if a really good looking girl shows up with this problem, sometimes the guys in service will do it for nothing, otherwise it's about .5 hour flat rate.

Didn't know my 93 vw golf had an alarm, now I had to disconnect the battery to shut if off.. what do I do to fix this?


I'm not sure if you have an aftermarket or factory alarm, but try this: hook up the battery and try unlocking/locking the door with the key. If you have a remote door lock, hit unlock/lock on that. I have come across a couple of cars this was all it took to stop the alarm, never tried with a VW though. Hope it works, good luck!

2001 Audi A6 2.7t , my audi symphony radio locked out


You will need the code to get it working. You may need Audi for this. Never disconnect the battery, or the alarm with trip on. Since it is frozen, I would try and remove the fuse, and reinstall it to reset the stereo. Then try the code.
I got lucky in my 2001 VW passat, when the stereo code was needed, but then the next day it started working by itself.

How to exit Radio Safe mode on my passat


Hi
Wiih most radio units....If you have the proper code and have NOT tried more than 15 times to enter an incorrect code....you should be ok.
Turn OFF ignition switch and remove the key. Switch OFF interior lights. Switch ON Radio unit and SAFE will appear.
Leave everything alone for a period of ONE HOUR. During this time NO power (no matter how small) should be drawn from the battery. This is why the interior lights MUST NOT come ON when the door is opened. Trunk should also remain closed. In the event of any power been drawn from the battery in this time...You must start all over again.
Radio should after this time return to standard mode...Usually 4 flashing bars. Then enter your code. Dont forget to lock in the code and all should be fine
All the best with it
John
