Sometimes you will find the rado code in your owners manual. If it is not there you can go to the vw dealerfor help. If you have the title or registration and vin # you can call a vw dealer or go into the dealership and ask the parts or service department to provide you with the radio code. I would try calling the dealers parts department first and they will tell you what you need to do. I hope this helps

    yes, always ask the dealer, some do have the secret reset, its not in the FSM. or thieves would flood the internet fast. rendering all useless

Code.
you mean the password,
if you read the manual , you will see there is no reset
and most radios is off, and if the owner 1 turns it ON
and owner 2 was not told it, there is no solution , besides guessing it.
by Design.

define code.?

SOURCE: 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

I have a 98 passat and the radio says save how do i get it working thanks


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 1998 VW 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!
