Hi, this is a common problem when people buy second hand cars and disconnect the battery to work on the car, they put the battery back on and find out the code needs putting in the stereo.

The problem is unless the original owners wrote it down in side the owners manual the only other option is take your car to the main dealers and they will then give you the code you need to take the car with you and maybe the log book they wont give this info out over the phone just in case the stereo has been stolen.

Their is no other way of getting this code as they dont give them out and as the codes are totally random their is no way of writing a program to hack these codes.

Sorry their is no easy fix for this but the upside is they wont charge you for giving you the code but you need to take the car with you then when they give you the code write it down in case you need it in the future or if you sold the car pass this info on to the new owner as they should have passed this on to you.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

You will likely need to take your vehicle's VIN# to the VW Dealer to have the code provided. In some VW's the code can be found inside the trunk (spare tire well) or written in the Owner's Manual by a previous owner. The VW Dealer can only provide the original code, unless they have a record of previously changing the radio.

Way too many codes to run through each code manually.

Had to replace battery on 01 VW Bettle where/how to find code to unlock radio?


If the code is not in the manual ( it usually is) you need to disconnect the battery for a while; usually 5-10 minutes is enough, sometimes as little as 30 seconds will do it. Look in the trunk under the floor mat on the metal surface at or near the spare tire and see if the sticker with the code is there. If the radio is the original one, there should be a small sticker with the serial number of the radio and the code underneath it.

Most dealers will not give out a code over the telephone because they have no way to verify that you own the vehicle. But if you live close enough to one, they can help you.

Need code for radio in a 1998 VW Beetle. Have VIN# an radio serial #. Any help will be appreciated.


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.

I need a unlock code for my radio VWZ9Z7X5006716, replaced my battery and lost my code please help me


Check for a sticker in the wheel well for your spare tire (inside the trunk). There may be a sticker with a 4-digit code. Otherwise you will need to get the code from a VW Dealer, but they will need the VIN # for your car and the Serial Number from your radio.

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"
