You have to press TA & TP together, then the 1000 appears and you enter the code using the 1-4 buttons then press TA & TP again to confirm (it's a BETA 4 radio).
If it is the current Beta proceed as follows:
1. Switch on: Display reads "SAFE"
2. Enter code using button "1" to enter the first digit of code, button "2" to enter the second digit etc.
3. When all 4 digits of the code are correctly display, press either the manual setting rocker (>) or the search (>>) button for more than 2 seconds. Then release.
4. The radio should then play. If it does not, press either the "FM" or "CC" button. Hope this helps.

    If the above procedure didnt work try this out

    If your jetta has SEEK/SCAN and buttons, press SEEK with the
    lower >, 1000 appears, enter your code, press SEEK and > again for
    about 2 seconds..radio will start playing.

    I would have had this done an hour ago if my radio had a "TA" or "TB" button. It doesn't. It has the following:

    BASS
    TREB
    STOP/EJECT
    FADE
    BAL
    TAPE SIDE
    FM1-2
    AM
    FM
    CD
    TAPE
    SEEK/TRACE
    TUNING
    REW/FF
    POWER
    MIX

    That's it. What now

  • ellenoliver May 31, 2010

    The seek/scan button has on it. You can't just "push" the seek/scan button. You have to toggle it either > or <. I tried "pushing" just the >. Now I have a "2" preceding the SAFE every time I turn on the power. ARGHHH.

    To try the code...
    1) Power the radio on... you should see
    "Safe" on the screen.
    2) Simultaneously hold down the "mode",
    "scan", and "mix" buttons for three seconds.
    3) If the key-combo
    works, you should see "1000" apear.
    4) Use the "1", "2", "3", and
    "4" keys to enter the code.
    5) Simultaneously hold the down the "mode",
    "scan", and "mix" buttons until the code disappears and the radio
    works.
    6) If not, try again.

    Do you use the radio which is authorised by VW

  • ellenoliver May 31, 2010

    Sigh. There is NO "mode" button on this model, but, of course, there is a SCAN button. I left that out of my list. So I pressed the SCAN and MIX buttons. All I get is "2 SAFE". Somehow, in screwing around, I introduced this "2".

    The radio has "volkswagon" printed on the tape door. When this happened to me before I took it in to a VW dealer and they found the code and input it and all was well until a mechanic did some work and disconnected the battery. Classic problem.

    OK. So you still don't have the proper model. No MODE button.on this one.

Radio reset code for 1998 a4 audi


I had the exact same problem on my 1998 Audi A4 Quattro Sedan I just purchased. I read a couple of other posts that said to try looking for the radio code in the spare tire compartment in the trunk. Sure enough on the right hand side of the compartment was a information label and on it someone had written the code 1174 in pen. I then left the key in the ignition and the radio on for an hour. Then I pushed the DX and FM1/2 button and the same time until the "1000" number appeared on the display. Then I pushed in the code 1174 using the 1 - 4 tuner buttons. For example the number 1 key I pushed until the number 1 appeared. Then pushed button number 2 until the number 1 appeared, pushed button 3 until the number 7 appeared and button 4 until number 4 appeared. After I had the code 1174 on the display, you again push the DX and FM1/2 button at the same time and the radio unlocked and worked perfectly. I hope that this helps. I have the Delta (Bose) AM/FM Cassette radio in my car. Good Luck!!

Re setting the radio on my VW Golf


heres what u do , switch radio on , safe appears in radio display , followed by 1000 approximately 3 seconds later , input the security code found on the radio card using the station preset buttons on the radio , Button 1 corresponds to the first number in the security code , 2 is the second and so on . press the applicable button repeatedly until the desired number appears in the display , ( press button 1 three times if the first number is 3 ), when the entire code has been input and appears on the display , press the right side of the seek button for longer than 2 seconds until an audible signal is heard , ,,, if you do not get this procedure correct , in 2 attempts , the radio will lock up for 1 hour before you can try again .. if this happens , leave the radio on for minimum 1 hour without touching it , after that time you may try again ..

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.
