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.

I changed the battery in my 1999 vw beetle and now I need a code for my radio and I do not have a code or know how to enter the code


Phone the dealer - they should supply you with the radio code free of charge. If not - and you can't find the radio code in any documentation, consider buying a code from Ebay.

It's quite easy to enter a radio code. Here's a link to show you how to do it:

2000 VW Beetle - had to jump the battery and when it restarted the radio doesn't work and the fuses are not blown and it doesn't show SAFE or anything on the radio.


2000 Beetle radio has a 10amp fuse at its rear left. have to remove radio to get to it. removing and returning radio is not easy. let me know if you need help with that as i have done this repeatedly on two different 2000 beetles and finally have it downpat. of course you need radio code, have found an article on how to disable VW radio anti-theft code but have not tried it yet.

How do you replace the battery in a 2004 volkswagen beetle


VW managed to fit the battery in the very last bit of space available. There is a bolt in the front that clamps the front edge down. Once it is unclamped, you'll need to unbolt the power steering reservoir to make room to get it out. If you don't use a "data saver" on the cables, you will need to enter the radio security code and possibly re-adapt the throttle body.
VW is short of volkswagen. Thank you.

Radio reads safe


The radio reads "safe" because you lost power to the radio. Either the battery was replaced, the battery was dead, or one of the terminals was disconnected. You will need to take the serial number from the radio to your local VW dealer where he can call in to obtain the programming code for your radio. The dealers usually do not charge in order for you to obtain the code.

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.
