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.

Try taking the actual radio out of the dash.In many cases the code is on a sticker on the body casing of the radio.Be carefull not to force the radio out though.Make sure the four corners of the radio release because you will damage the dash if the four holes in the corners are not unlocked...

My 97 vw jetta gl stock radio does not work, I replaced the fuse for it but now the screen just lights up green nothing else


It's likely there is a security code for the radio which since being "disconnected" thinks the battery has been removed. Check with dealer by vin. They probably have the security code in their system.

Need a radio code for 1997 vw jetta


Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership.
Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

I need radio code for 1997 vw jetta radio model# 1hm 035 180 B Serial # 12247


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer! For VW radio the sequence of programming 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.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
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!

My wife's 2007 Jetta battery went dead now I have no power to radio and fuses are all good


The radio has a special code for theft prevention, you may need to take it to a repair shop and have them recode the radio for you. Call around though, and find a repair shop that has the aftermarket software (VCDS). If you take it to a dealer they will probably charge at least $100, and it takes almost no time at all. There is an inexpensive software sold for VW that allows independant repair shops to program the microprocessors on VW's (like the one for your radio).
