You will need to inquire from the VW Servive Center. The Dealer is one of the few people that can call in and get the radio code.

First check your Owner's Manual in case a prior owner wrote it down insed the manual. Also look for a sticker inside the spare tire wheel well. For some model years VW placed the code on a sticker and then put it in that location. My daughter has a 98 VW Beetle and we had to inquire of the Service Department. They didn't charge us to obtain the code, and it took less than 5 minutes to obtain.

Buttons on my 2000 vw beetle radio that changes it from fm,am, cd,and tape will not push since my husband unplugged the battery and plugged back up


youre going to need to get the radio code from the vw dealer. there is no way around this. you will need radio serial number and the vin off the door of the vehicle. once you have this info, write it down in the back of your owners handbook. to get the radio serial number, the radio will have to be pulled out.

I NEED THE CODE TO MY JETTA RADIO, IS NO THE FACTORY RADIO, IS THE SAME OEM MODEL, THE SERIAL NUMBER IS VWZ4Z7A6036630, THANKS


TO FIND THE CODE FOR THAT RADIO, YOU MUST CONTACT THE PREVIOUS OWNER OF THE RADIO OR IT WILL NEVER WORK. FOR INSTANCE, IF IT CAME OUT OF A 2000 BEETLE, YOU MUST HAVE THE COMPLETE VIN NUMBER, YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL TO GET THE CODE FROM THE VW DEALER. IF YOU CALL THEM, THEY MAY GIVE YOU THE CODE YOU NEED. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. BEST OF LUCK

2004 VW Beetle no power to Radio


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.

Just got 2002 vw beetle...can't turn safety off radio


There is a radio code, but you may need to go to the VW dealer to get it. First look inside your trunk in the spare tire wheel well to see if there is a sticker there. The radio code is four (4) numbers. If not the dealer will need the serial number of the radio along with your VIN number. Most dealers provide the radio code at no cost when asked.

98 VW Beetle used-no radio code- I have radio & car serial #'s...


I assume you have this unlocked by now, but here's an answer for someone else for the future :-)
if you have the original radio that come with the car, look in the wheel well in the trunk, where the spare tire goes. (yep, you'll need to stand on your head). there is a sticker that will have the 4-digit code on it.
enter that into the radio.
I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is, but either the >> Scan or the am/fm button will be the "enter key"
