SOURCE: 1998 beetle radio buttons

The face plate buttons actually activate small buttons on a printed circuit board behind the face plate. When I removed the radio and then the face plate many small pieces of plastic fell from behind the face plate. These small plastic pieces align the face plate button to the printed circuit board buttons. My Beeetle is almost 10 1/2 years old so I imagine the plastic is just becoming brittle with age. I could not set the radio to FM, so I removed the face plate button and now slide a toothpick in the slot to toggle between FM1 & FM2. Not he best solution, but probably the most inexpensive one. I also made my on tool to remove the radio from a diagram found at: http://www.alientech.net/nbinfo/stereo.html

SOURCE: 2003 VW Beetle battery drain

I think I remember running into this once before and found a factory rear speaker amplifier in trunk that stayed powered on then we replaced the amp and the new one did the same thing . then checked radio coding and it wasn't set to proper code so it didn't know to turn off the amp. changed the coding to correct setting and bingo problem solved. hope that might help but coding can only be done by dealership.

SOURCE: emergency latch for gas cap 2000 VW Beetle, where is it?

From the manual:

  • Open the rear lid.
  • Open the cover on the backside of the luggage compartment. To open the cover, turn the two "quick-releases" and fold the cover down.
  • Reach through the opening by the fuel filler flap. Grab the cable with th plastic covering and pull down. The filler flap will open by itself.
Best of luck!

Hope this helps they seem to know their stuff and there is a complete pdf manual for Moonsoon but I would hazard a guess and say you may well need a new one or aftermarket one soon

I accidently removed the face of the stereo on my 2000 Beetle while trying to remove the unit. It lights up, but looks like it might need a code to work?


In your VW manual you should have received a booklet that pertains to the radio. Written on the inside front cover of that booklet is a 4 digit number. If you do not have this booklet you will need to call VW to get the code (I don't know if there is a cost associated with this or not.) When you turn your radio on (usually after interupting power to the vehicle) you will get a "safe" message on the radio face plate. After 3 seconds you will get 4 numbers. Enter the assigned 4 digit number by using the preset radio buttons 1-4. Once you get the number in, push the portion of the "scan" button until you get an audible "beep." Your radio should be back in business.

Daughter has 1998 beetle, no owners manual the radio is in the safe mode and not coming on vin 3vwbb61c61c6wm010615, how do i get this to work?


Hello Camille, you will need the code for the radio, if you don't have it, look in the trunk, VW likes to hide them in there, under the spare tire. If you can't find it, you will have to get it from the dealer per VIN number. Once you have the code follow this procedure.

1: Turn on the radio, "SAFE" will appear in the display
2: After 3 seconds, the number 1000 will appear in the display.
3: Use the radio station preset buttons 1 to 4 to enter the code number for your radio. Use preset button 1 to enter the first digit in the code number. Use button 2 to enter the second digit, etc. The value range for each of the 4 digits is "0...9". The digit will increase by 1 each time you tap the preset button. The number returns to "0" after "9".
4: After you finish entering the code, press the right side (">") of the SEEK button 10 for longer than 2 seconds until you hear an audible signal.
5: if you`ve entered the code number correctly, "LSM" will appear in the display.
6: Now you are ready to use the radio again.

I hope this information is helpful.

I have a 2000 beetle with fixing in the boot for cd changer...will any changer do, not sure what i should be looking for! Thanks


Likely have a Monsoon radio system in your 2000 Beetle. The CD changer is controlled by your radio, and not any CD changer will connect to the outlet in your trunk. You can either find a CD changer on eBay (or elsewhere, or swap out your radio for a radio from a newer VW Beetle that has a CD player installed instead of the cassette. Can also find those on eBay.

I bought a used 2003 Jetta for my daughter with only 12,000 miles on it. The Monsoon radio suddenly stopped working. The display shows FM 88.1 (the radio staion) but there is no sound and the radio is...


I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.
