Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have a 2000 VW Beetle TDI; the radio won't turn on. I think it may be a fuse but I am not sure where to find the fuse. I also read something about needed to type a code in because it could be in safe mode; what/where is this code?

In my 200 vw beetle tdi, the radio will not turn on. the fuse is good for the radio, so what else should i try


You need to remove the radio out from the dashboard using special removal VW radio Gamma keys. In the rear face of the unit is placed a fuse (red color) = 10 Amp. Replace blown fuse with a new one. Then you will need to exit the radio out from the security "SAFE" mode.

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


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for a 2000 VW Beetle radio Gamma is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDM" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDM" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDM" 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!

If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer

2000 VW Beetle - had to jump the battery and when it restarted the radio doesn't work and the fuses are not blown and it doesn't show SAFE or anything on the radio.


2000 Beetle radio has a 10amp fuse at its rear left. have to remove radio to get to it. removing and returning radio is not easy. let me know if you need help with that as i have done this repeatedly on two different 2000 beetles and finally have it downpat. of course you need radio code, have found an article on how to disable VW radio anti-theft code but have not tried it yet.

Do you have any water stains around the sunroof? If not I doubt that is your problem. If the sun roof is not leaking it is most likely the seal on your front window.
