Question about Car Audio Receivers
I have a 1998 vw new beetle it comes with an anti theft stereo that goes into safe mode if the battery dies in any way or if removed. i had the 3.4 booklet before that i need to get the code but i feel my wife by accident has thrown it out since i have all but the one i need. im trying to find out what my code is. its a four digit code that i need to enter into the system to get it to turn back on to hear music. i know how to enter it just not the code. PLEASE PLEASE can you help, i have failed at finding it for 2 weeks now and dont have the money to take it in to have it done for me. PLEASE help...
This is a fairly common issue with modern car radios since anti-theft has been added as a security feature. Your options are rather limited if you lost the manual. A few are:
1. Contact the original dealer of the vehicle. You need to present proof of purchase/ownership and VIN number. If the dealer is sympathetic, he will check on a database and get the numbers for you; or
2. With fingers crossed, check the spare tire area. See if you can locate the sticker with the VIN number. In most instances below it would be a series of 4 numbers. Try using those numbers as your code.
Pls be reminded that after 2 wrong tries, you need about an hour or more before you can try again.
Hope that this be of some help. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
