How do I get the radio code on my beetle?

The radio code is located in the owners manual. Usually on the radio flyer with a sticker showing the code. If you do not have that owners manual, you can call the VW dealer with you VIN number and they will get the code for you. They usually do not charge you for it, but it does take a little while for them to locate it in the system.

I need the unlock code for a 2004 volkswagon beetle radio

you will need to pull the radio out of the dash and get the serial number which is on the right side 14 digit stamped in the metal. The numbers should start with will also need the VIN. Then you will need to call a VW dealer with these numbers and ask them if they will get it for you. They will enter the numbers in a special VW dealer secured web site to get the code.

2008 VW radio code is gone i need help pleeeeease

Most of the time the radio code is written down on the inside front or rear cover of the owners manual.

If that is not the case then hopefully you will be able to get the code from a Volkswagen dealership with only the VIN number to the vehicle, otherwise you will need to remove the radio to get the serial number from that radio in order to obtain the correct code from a Volkswagen dealership.

You will need to contact a Volkswagen dealership to find out which is applicable to your vehicle, and that is also the same way that any repair shop would obtain that radio code.

I have a 1999 volkswagen bettle and i bought it used and the safe is on the radio how do i get it , i dont have a hand book and ive been driving around and its way to quite.. someone please help

If you can re-move the radio, they have a bar code on them. Or even faster call a VW dealer auto part's and give them your vin number, some times they help you out by giving you a universal code. If that don't work you can change it out and get a after market radio installed. Way cheaper than having your factory one get service by a dealer ship.

2004 VW Beetle no power to Radio

Your radio is most likely in "safe mode", an anti-theft feature. There's a 4-digit code that will need to be entered in order to get the radio operational. The code may be on a label inside the spare tire well in your trunk (some years). Otherwise the code can be obtained from the VW dealer with the car's VIN number and serial number from your radio.

98 VW Beetle used-no radio code- I have radio & car serial #'s...

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"
