Do you mean after you have typed in the code, you don't know what other button to press? According to the manual, that is the right side (arrow) of the seek/track button located on the left side of the radio. Did you need the number from the side of the radio in order to get the code? Mine is stuck in safe mode as well, and they said I needed to havfe the radio removed to find the number on the side of the radio, along with the vin number. Does that sound right?

I need to unlock the radio on the blazer. It is


You will need to take it to the dealership to have them pull the lock code and call Delphi for the unlock code then they can unlock it for you and have them write down the unlock code for you then you can follow the procedure in the owners manual to make your own unlock code or keep the orginal.

I have a 1999 cabrio changed the battery now radio is asking for code I do not have the code what is my solution is there a default code i can try


Probably depends on the year/model of the VW. For a 1999 through 2002 Cabrio, you would need to do this: obtain the unlock code that was shipped with the vehicle. If you don't have the unlock code, your local dealership can pull the radio and look up the code with the serial number. Once you have the unlock code, then turn on the radio. You should see SAFE displayed. After about 3 secs, "0001" should appear. Use the station preset buttons 1 through 4. Preset 1 changes the first digit of the code, and preset 2 changes the second digit, etc. Enter all 4 digits of the code. After code is entered, press right side of "Seek" button for about 2 seconds, until an audible signal is heard. If you hose up and get the wrong code...will go back to SAFE displayed. You will get another chance to enter the code. After 2 failed attempts, you have to wait 1 hour again for it to unlock. So carefully enter the correct code the first time.
Volkswagen uses the radio lock feature to prevent unauthorized users of your audio system and will not allow your radio to operate without the proper unlock code.
Volkswagen began using the anti theft feature around 1990 and is still in use in most Volkswagen vehicles today!
Step 1 - Retrieve radio serial#
Your vehicle requires that you remove the radio from the vehicle in order to retrieve your radio's serial number.
Number will start with vwz.Must be a 14 digit number.You must include all numbers and letters included in the radio serial#, including "vwz". Radio serial# Found on chassis of vehicles radio. You must remove the radio from the vehicle in order to retrieve the radio serial number. This number may be stamped in the metal, on side of radio.

Step 2 - Retrieve vehicle V.I.N #Vehicle identification number.Usually found at the bottom of drivers side window.
Step 3 - Purchase code at

http://www.radio-code.com


  • You will receive your radio unlock code, via email.

  • Approximate code retrieval time is 30 minutes to 24 hours.

To do it yourself you will need to have the radio removal keys to unlock the radio compartment .
look at this site and you will have an idea :

How can I remove my radio from my 2001 cabrio vw so I can get the radio serial number to reset my radio. I lost my code number to reset radio :-(


You do not need to take the dash apart, there are two little slots oneon each side of the face of the radio, you need special removal tools to unlock it and it will pull right out, but first check in your owners manual, or in the spare tire well for the card, or sticker which has the serial number as well as the unlock code for your radio.

Code for a 2002 vw cabrio radio


Take out the radio. sometimes the code has been written on it. It also might be written on the owners manual.
If not, take the radio and your VIN (vehicle identification number) to the dealer with proof of ownership of the car.
If you are nice to them they just might give you the code. My local dealership gave my code to me like this.

2000 cabrio radio code


The code for each car is different, it can be found in your books that came with the car if the original owner left it in (it has to be written in the section that deals with the stereo and security); if they took it out and it is not available, you can call a dealership and give them the VIN number and they should be able to give you the code for your particular car. They are not supposed to charge for this service but if you are getting nowhere you can call Volkswagen directly and talk to customer service.
Good luck
