Question about 2004 Volkswagen Touareg

Open Question

Radio Display The AM/FM/CD stereo radio in my '04 Tourareg previously included certain song title information in the radio's display when tuned to stations that included that info in their broadcast. I no longer see the info in the display when tuned to the same stations where I previously viewed the info. I can't find a "display setting" or convenience or menu item to turn the function on again and the owner''s manual is no help. Got a solution?

    my 2005 touareg radio is working and it display on the MFI but doesnt diplay on the radio screen.its just blank.pls any help

  • cathyjetta Feb 19, 2009

    I just recently experienced the same problem with my 06 Jetta - dealership replaced the radio which corrected the problem for about a month. Then the title/artist display disappeared again. After taking it back to the dealership, they contacted VW and were told that VW is "no longer supporting that function". No one can explain what that means. They then suggested that I contact VW Customer Care, which I did. THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANT EITHER. Still waiting for them to get back to me with an answer. CALL, CALL, CALL - if they get enough complaints, maybe they will start supporting the function again!

Hey.. i just had the same thing happen... bought a 1994 Jetta.. radio in safe mode... so i went online and found out.. hold scan mode and the arrows after your preset station button.. then after like 3 secs or so you'll see " 000" on the display.. use the preset buttons.. 1,2,3, and 4 to change the display to enter your code :D if you lost your code go to VW dealer and pull radio out and see service center .. carry VIN code in as well and they can look up your code.. takes like 5 mins and is FREE,,, man i love that word :D

Step 11Seek and Scan buttons Press and hold the SEEK and bottom SCAN buttons until "1000" appears, this should just be a few seconds. Step 222Release the buttons and in put the code using the radio buttons. For example if your code is 1933, press the "1" button one time, then the "2" button 9 times, the "3" button 3 times and the "4" button 3 times. Step 33Then press and hold again the SEEK and bottom SCAN until the word SAFE appears. Step 44Release the buttons and the radio should start playing.

You will have to go to the Volkswagen dealer for this, they are the only ones that can give you the correct code. It will involve your car serial number too.

I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.

The radio is locked on a 1995 oldsmobile 88


How to Unlock a Chevy Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio.
Step 2: Press and hold preset numbers 2 and 3 until a three digit code appears on the radio display. Write this code down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Call the Chevy Radio Code phone line at 1-800-537-5140.
Step 4: Enter 106010 followed by the # key to direct you to the radio code retrieval system.
Step 5: Enter the six digit code you retrieved in steps 2 and 3 followed by the * key. They must be in order. You will be given a four digit radio code. Write down the radio code.
Step 6: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Using the Minute and Hour buttons, enter in the four digit radio code to your stereo system. Press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo.
How to Unlock a GM Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio. The radio will display "LOC" indicating the Theftlock system is activated.
Step 2: Press and hold preset buttons 1 and 4 for ten seconds. (If you don't have a fourth preset button, press and hold presets 2 and 3.) The radio will display a three digit number. Write this number down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Contact your local GM Dealer and give them the six digit code. They will give you a four digit radio code.
Many dealers will give you your radio code for free, while others may charge a small fee. If your dealer is charging a larger fee, consider calling another dealer or doing a Google search for sites offering GMC Radio codes. They usually charge a small (around $10) fee.
Step 5: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Press the Hour button on the radio until the first two number of the code appear. Next, press the Minute button until the last two numbers of the code are displayed. Once all four digits appear, press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo. The display will read "SEC" indicating you have successfully unlocked your radio and it is fully operational.
If radio display reads "INOP" while the vehicle is on, too many incorrect radio codes have been entered. To remove "INOP" from your display and unlock your radio, you must leave the key in the On position for one hour. Once you've retrieved your radio unlock code, write it down for future use. Your radio code will not change and having it handy will save from going from the radio code retrieval process again.

Replaced radio with one from same model year. Displays Err 01.


this generally means the laser is either dirty or the cd player is shot, err 01 is a disc reading problem. Try cleaning lens with cleaning disc first if this does not help i would replace the unit with another. i would recommend replacing it with a cheap aftermarket stereo.

Need to change the 12v supply by the Radio


The Ford Focus has a stereo problem where the display blinks on and off, with or without the ignition on. This is not a power problem.

This problem occurs when attempting to store a radio station when a blank RDS signal is being transmitted.
To restore your stereo:
  • Insert a CD, stereo will turn on in CD mode.
  • Press MENU button
  • Select DEFAULT RESET by turning the right rotary knob and press to select
  • Select YES by tuning the right rotary knob and press select
  • Press BACK button
  • Press the RDS button once, display will read RDS OFF
  • Stereo will now work properly
To prevent this problem from occurring again, be sure some text is in the top line of the display when setting a stereo station. Do not set a station when the station name is blank in display.

I have a 1999 chevy lumina LTZ and i change the battery after that my cd player locked asking me a code so can u please help me how to unlock the code. Thank you


Search the net for "Delco unlock codes" OR "Delco security codes" you should easily find a set of instructions telling you to get a code from your radio and then call an 800 number. Follow these instructions. This will give you the factory unlock code for your stereo. Worked for me and for heaven sakes don't pay anybody for this information - it's free.
