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

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

    Since the owners manual says no charge and the dealers want to charge you 90.00 this is not helpful.

If you pull the radio out the code is on the back.

I have a 99 vw passat. Retrieved unlock code from dealer via serial number. When I enter code the radio makes a static type sound and goes right back into safe mode.


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

The sequence of programming for VW 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.
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!

I own a 98 jetta, I just completed some major engine work . But now I can't start it and the radio says safe mode.... whats up?


(STEREO-SAFE MODE ) Look on the (Stereo Booklet) It has a Vehicle stereo code card in the front page. Type the four digit code as it tells you in the instructions. If you don't have the booklet call the dealer and tell them to give you the code it should be free.

I replaced my car battery in my 1996 Volkswagon Jetta and now the radio won't work. It actually says SAFE on the dial. How can I reset it


You will need to enter the radio unlock code. The lock code maybe on a sticker in the trunk, or consult a VW dealer to get the unlock code.

Radio code stuck in safe mode


I had this same problem when I had to disconnect the radio. If you take it to your local VW dealership they will give you the codes for free. Keep them though for when you have to redo it again. Every car is different.
