The codes are different for each car. You can contact the VW dealer, if you can prove that you own the car they will give you the code. Check the owners manual, there should be a card with the code on it, or sometiimes it is just written in it.

Vw polo classic radio stucked in safe mode even after entering the radio code? i tried it over n over again nd it goes through the same process of safe1 nd safe2 respectively? plz help


If you kept putting in the code and it went into Safe mode...did you not consider that the code was wrong?
Every time you put in the wrong code, the stereo will lock you out for longer each time...in fact, some units will never work again unless specialist replaces security chip.
You need to verify the stereo code by either using a code cracker...ebay...or..go to your local trusted Garage and let them sort it for you.

Vw standard golf 2002 with no security stereo code. Security code is locked.


maybe get lucky and disconnect the positive terminal on the battery ! each vehicle manufacture has a reset somewhere in it ! if you cant drive it find the security fuses under the dash or the hood and pull them !

Replaced the Battery and my Mercedes benz 1996 C280 CD player is requesting a code, does anyone know if it is unique or universal code, please supply if the code is universal.


To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

Need to unlock 99 Beetle stereo!!


Hi, this is a common problem when people buy second hand cars and disconnect the battery to work on the car, they put the battery back on and find out the code needs putting in the stereo.

The problem is unless the original owners wrote it down in side the owners manual the only other option is take your car to the main dealers and they will then give you the code you need to take the car with you and maybe the log book they wont give this info out over the phone just in case the stereo has been stolen.

Their is no other way of getting this code as they dont give them out and as the codes are totally random their is no way of writing a program to hack these codes.

Sorry their is no easy fix for this but the upside is they wont charge you for giving you the code but you need to take the car with you then when they give you the code write it down in case you need it in the future or if you sold the car pass this info on to the new owner as they should have passed this on to you.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Locked Pontiac Radio


I just bought the haynes book and here is what it says,, when the owner is restored to the stereo the stereo wont turn on and LOC will appear.. here is what it says.. ... turn on ignition switch but leave stereo off
Press MN button.. 000 should display ... it says that in 2002 two an dlater models
that it will learn a portion of the VIN number fo your vehicle.. so you will just have to try those numbers until it works.. syas that you press the HR button until the first one or two Numbers match your code.. Press AM/FM button SEC should appear indicating the stereo is unlocked.d. if LOC appears the numbers arent correct.. try again..

VW Car Stereo code


To get the radio code you will need to give the v.i.n. # and the info on the back of the radio such as model #, serial #, date of manufacture, to either your local vw dealer ship, or the place or person you bought it from, they could do it for free, but if you look on-line you can find site that will get you the code at a cost. but before you do anything, make sure to go throu all your book/paper work (it could be written in the user manual, or on a piece of paper with some of the other operating instructions), usually it is a 4 or 5 digit number
