My Volkswagen Golf GTI had to have its battery disconnected, but now my radio does not work and needs activating. I type the code in but this does not do anything. Could you tell me the procedure to input the code and get the radio working?

    OK, the unit is programmed to lock down after the third unsuccessful attempt. This is a pe-programmed security feature that is to prevent the usage of this unit if it was stolen during a break-in.

    Due to this unfortunate situation, you will need extract this unit and, send to the manufacture for the unlock procedure or, you can take your entire vehicle to the nearest dealership to have the service techs reprogram(unlock) the unit.

My vw golf tenacity battery went flat replace now my radio is blocked on safe mode and showes two


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your VW service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

Im looking for the raido code for my vw golf,,,, i changed the battery the other day and i need the code for the radio to work ,,, does any 1 no where i could get the code ..... its a gamma radio serial...


If it is a factory radio,you can contact a VW dealer(I think you need the VIN# also)and they will provide the code for free.Write down the code and method because anytime the battery gets disconnected that will happen and it does get disconnected for some problem checkouts other than battery or alternator.
Good luck! Greg

The battery was replaced and now the radio in my 2003 gti does not work


When you disconnect/replace a car battery, your radio anti-theft security system will be triggered: consult your car user manual on how to reset the anti-theft security for your particular radio/audio system: you will need to enter a specific 'security code' that should have been provided when your car or car audio system was bought.

Radio reset code?


Radios go into safety mode when power is lost like a battery being changed. The only way to find out the code is if you can contact the original owner and they still remember or you have to take it to a VW dealership service station. The service department can find out the code it might co$t you though.
