    it is asking for the radio security/anti theft code, u will need to contact the dealer for this if u are not the orig owner, u will need the serial number off the radio chassis and the vin form the car, each code is unique to each car and radio.

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!

My 99 passat will not turn over and it drains the battery dead in a couple of days just sitting there.

Was driving my 99 boneville turned on the heater


It sounds to me like you need the negative terminal on your battery to see if it has loosened off.If that is not the case then you need to check the negative cables to the block and the body of the car.do the same with the positive cable and verify that the wires to the starter are tight.

Won't start


I would try the battery, it sounds like it has enough juice to power the lights, but not everything else. You can take the battery to a local parts store and they can test it at no charge.

1999 PASSAT 1.8 STANDARD. DOES NOT CRANK OR START. I PUSH IT AND TURNS ON. BATTERY WORKS(RADIO AND LIGHTS TURN ON)


Still the battery can be the fault. the starter can be too. The clutch in switch can be it, even the wire off of the switch ( your big toe hit it ) The battery cables at the battery are the first place to look take them off and clean them as they can still turn on the lights but not crank the engine even with a good ( but dirty ) battery
