JUST BOUGHT A 1997 VW JETTA AND THE RADIO IS LOCKED

Posted by on

1 Answer

This happens when the battery is disconnected. There is a 4 digit code that needs to be entered, via the directions in the manual. But you'll need to go to a dealer to get your code. If you enter the wrong code more than (3 times), the whole system will lock for roughly 24 hours before you can even try again. I've got a sticker thats inside my glovebox with the code, in case this ever happens. Good luck!

I have a VW Jetta 1997 with a 2.0 liter gas engine and I was wondering what oil that motor takes. Also I was wondering how to get the radio/Cd player working


The oil to use is 10/40 semi synthetic(VW fit 10/40 full when, new but dealers buy gemini 10/40 direct from VW for all services for cars over 5 years old).with regards the stereo system,if its the original and it says CODE then you will need to find the code(dealer) or get the thing recoded.

I need radio code for 1997 vw jetta radio model# 1hm 035 180 B Serial # 12247


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer! For VW radio the sequence of programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" 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!

Radio on VW Jetta shorts out


This is most likely a bad ground from the radio to the chasis. The louder you play it the more current it draws and the lower the voltage drops thru the resistive (bad) ground. When volatge drops below a certain point the radio shuts off.
