Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I bought a 2001 Vw Golf, mark 4 and the key has a button to push for the immobilizer but it does nothing when i press it? The immobilizer in the car does keep flashing so that certainly still works? The light which sends the signal (i think) keeps falling out of the key so it was sellotaped together. Would this be part of the problem? Help much needed, Thanks!

My golf mk4 am/fm/mini-disc player comes on but can't tune to any station. Only displays FM 76.0, do I need a radio code? I bought it as used from Japan 8 months ago. Please, I need your advice!


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from a Volkswagen dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for 2003 VW Golf radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.
The radio is now ready for use!

Re sitting the radio in my VW golf


The number buttons on the stereo change the code, so push the 1 button 3 times for 3, 2 button 1 time for 1, and so on. If your code was 2255, you'd hit the 1 button 2 times, the 2 button 2 times, the 3 button 5 times, and the 4 button 5 times. When the code is displayed on the screen, you press Mode and Scan at the same time AND HOLD THEM until the radio unlocks. It'll let you know if it's the right number.

On a 1996 vw golf the only way i can start it is to hook a wire from the hot to a jumper on the starter selinod and it makes it engage but if i hook the jumper wire up normally nothing happens when i turn...


Hello, I take it you twist the key to start and nothing? I repaired my Postmans Vw with the same problem. Firstly it is common and the dealer way of solving is to replace the whole ignition barrel. However I went to Maplins bought a 10 amp push to make flush fitting switch and grafted it into the wire from the ignition switch that goes to the one You use to hot wire the starter you can fuse it too to be safe. Now he has a Vw that looks like the New Bmw Mini for push button starting.
There You Go! Problem solved.
