Welcome to Fixya! You will get a Lot of Codes on here But, #1 Most of them will not Work and #2 If you try 3 Times Unsuccecfully you will be Locked out. The Dealership IS the Best place to get this Code for the Stereo to Operate again. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    Go to the dealer with your title, registration, and photo ID and they can look it up based on the VIN number of your car. They may charge you up to an hour's labor so be prepared and make sure they write down the code so you don't have to pay again if you need it in the future.

    The original selling dealer will have the number, your local dealer should be able to pull up the information based on your serial number as to who the selling dealer was. your  original selling deale will help you free of charge. Once you have the number it's easy to code.
    Thanks for using FixYa.

I'm pretty sure you'll need to contact the manufacturer of the radio about a security code, or maybe your local VW dealership can help you if the radio is stock. I'd try the dealership first.

Radio in SAFE mode


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
