I changed the battery and my radio reseted when i wrote the code the radio kept saying wait who can i fix this.....


your radio is in safe or anti theft mode. Radio security codes are normally wrote down down in your owners manual when vehicle was purchased new, otherwise you will need to contact the dealer with your vin to get your specific code to unlock it. hope this helps and happy holidays

The radio is in SAFE mode....


It has to be the wrong code. You have to take in to the VW dealership, (because of so many stolen radios), they will have to verify your registration. Then they will remove your radio, get the serial number put it in to VW hub<( dealership only VW repair site), and retrieve the correct code. Even though the code shown is in your owners manual should have been the correct code sometimes radios get switched. Question at the end you said you pressed seek- did you hold the right lower arrow button, (scan), in till radio began to play?

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

Need code for radio in a 1998 VW Beetle. Have VIN# an radio serial #. Any help will be appreciated.


You will need to inquire from the VW Servive Center. The Dealer is one of the few people that can call in and get the radio code.

First check your Owner's Manual in case a prior owner wrote it down insed the manual. Also look for a sticker inside the spare tire wheel well. For some model years VW placed the code on a sticker and then put it in that location. My daughter has a 98 VW Beetle and we had to inquire of the Service Department. They didn't charge us to obtain the code, and it took less than 5 minutes to obtain.

2004 VW Beetle no power to Radio


Your radio is most likely in "safe mode", an anti-theft feature. There's a 4-digit code that will need to be entered in order to get the radio operational. The code may be on a label inside the spare tire well in your trunk (some years). Otherwise the code can be obtained from the VW dealer with the car's VIN number and serial number from your radio.

I change the battery on my 1999 vw new beetle now the radio is on safe mode please a need the code for the radio


Look at your registration documents , it will show the dealership that sold the car in the first place

Inside the handbooks there will be details of your radio and the way to enter up the code

If you are lucky the original owners will have been too lazy to change them from the factory default in which case the dealer may still have that on record.

If not you may have to take the radio out and either return it to the manufacturer for unlocking or get some smart kid who is into jacking cars to do it for you for a small fee

98 VW Beetle used-no radio code- I have radio & car serial #'s...


I assume you have this unlocked by now, but here's an answer for someone else for the future :-)
if you have the original radio that come with the car, look in the wheel well in the trunk, where the spare tire goes. (yep, you'll need to stand on your head). there is a sticker that will have the 4-digit code on it.
enter that into the radio.
I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is, but either the >> Scan or the am/fm button will be the "enter key"

Radio in safe mode


OK do you have the radio in your hands? IF not you have to remove it using the special tools slotted to unlock it and pull it out. The radio serial is etched into it but you have to remove it to see. With this and the car's serial and proof of ownership VW can get the radio code for you. Or they'd be happy to remove it for you as well and get the other info themselves.
