You will need to inquire from the VW Servive Center. The Dealer is one of the few people that can call in and get the radio code.
First check your Owner's Manual in case a prior owner wrote it down insed the manual. Also look for a sticker inside the spare tire wheel well. For some model years VW placed the code on a sticker and then put it in that location. My daughter has a 98 VW Beetle and we had to inquire of the Service Department. They didn't charge us to obtain the code, and it took less than 5 minutes to obtain.
Your radio is most likely in "safe mode", an anti-theft feature. There's a 4-digit code that will need to be entered in order to get the radio operational. The code may be on a label inside the spare tire well in your trunk (some years). Otherwise the code can be obtained from the VW dealer with the car's VIN number and serial number from your radio.
There is a radio code, but you may need to go to the VW dealer to get it. First look inside your trunk in the spare tire wheel well to see if there is a sticker there. The radio code is four (4) numbers. If not the dealer will need the serial number of the radio along with your VIN number. Most dealers provide the radio code at no cost when asked.
"2 safe" means that you have entered the wrong code twice. Leave the igniton switched on for about an hour and it will reset to - - - (three small lines) then you can enter the correct code. If you dont have the code you will need to speak to your vw dealer
