I need help unlocking my 99 vw passat stock radio, changed the battery and now my radio won't turn on.and i do not have the radio code..can anyone help me


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 a 1999 VW Passat radio is:
1. Simultaneously push "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 simultaneously push again "SCAN" and "RDS" keys to 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 to use!

Replacing the ECU on a 1999 VW Passat Sedan 1.8 Turbo


if u have an electronic key than security codes from ur key must be programmed into the ecu to match-- most ecu change overs on cars usually require a trip to the dealer so they can install their programming most auto shops dont have the funds to, or customer base to spend thousands [every auto maker has their own software and update and change every year]-- every year on reprogramming software for ecu-- they may do only 1 or 2 a year

Key trouble


You'd have to go to a dealership for it, if you have no other keys. If your Passat is like my Audi A4, you have a laser cut key that is "different" than most keys. If you have no key for the car currently, you'll have to go to a dealer with your title and VIN number. They'll be able to make you a new one from the proper master key. If you have another key that you can use, you can buy a blank replacement on eBay for much less, and have a locksmith with laser-cutting equipment do the cut. Several people I know have paid around $70 for a new key at a dealer, whereas those who could supply a second key to use to make a new one were able to buy the key blank online and have it cut at a locksmith's for $10-15.
