Radio code for my 2003 vw jetta premium 6 radio


If it is not in the owners manual you will likely need to provide the vehicle vin # and registration to a VW dealer Parts Department and they can call it in to the manufacturer and get it for you.

Poor radio reception 04 Jetta


It may be more of a design flaw oppose to a actual problem. However, you can purchase signal booster that simply plug between the radio and the cars antenna.

VW Premium 6 Monsoon code Unlock


You do have to have the vin # to get the code to unlock most of the time but they may be able to get for you off serial # on top of radio. You would need to call VW dealer and they would give you another # to call. It is free if you have the vin, for reasons of radio theft you need vin most of the time.

Your Volkswagen has a known problem with the radio - many people have a similar issue. There is a problem is the antenna base, which corrodes due to weather exposure, and leads to poor/intermittent radio reception. The solution is replacement of the antenna base - a job that can be done by home mechanics (the parts cost under $20), or by a mechanic.

However, the fact that you are also having problems with the CD might hint a larger problems with your stereo system. Have you tried different CDs in the deck? Try with a few different unscratched, store bought CDs (ie, not CD-Rs) and see if you can isolate the problem to the radio.

It is the overriding by intersteller priority dimensional language conversion filtering. Nothing to worry about, It can be easily defeated and modulated by tightening your removable Radio Antenae.:-) Good Luck_Ned_

Pull fuse 14 and reinsert.

There is also an inline fuse in back of the radio itself.

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.
