VW Jetta 2000 retrieve radio code

I'm about to replace the battery in a 2000 Jetta but someone said I should retrieve my radio "SAFE" code before I kill the juice. How do I find what this code is for my factory installed radio?

    I have a 2000 jetta gl. A light came on which looks like a car with a key under it.. it started then shut off... I have read that you can try just leaving the ignition on for 10 min,,did so and didn't work. I left the car sitting for a day, got in it to push move it and the light was no longer on..and it hasn't been back on since. I am afraid to drive it anywhere,,can you tell me why this happened..also..for the other question.... what do you do with the code from the radio once you have changed your battery...i haven't had this car for very long,,, got it in march..it's a great car,, just not reliable

YOU CAN PULL RADIO AND GET IT'S SERIAL NUMBER IF YOU DON'T KNOW IT MUST TAKE PROOF OF OWNERSHIP TO DEALER AND THEY CAN LOOK UP CODE. RADIO MUST BE PULLED IF YOU DON'T HAVE CODE. CHECK GLOVE BOX AND OWNERS MANUAL FOR A 4 OR 5 DIGIT NUMBER USALLY LOCATED ON WHAT LOOKS LIKE A CREDIT CARD

It will be printed in the manual that came with the car. You cannot fond out from the unit itself otherwise it would be a pointless security feature.

My radio is in safe mode after the battery got drained


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from a VW dealer!


Or you can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for 1994 VW Jetta radio 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.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
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!

I need a code to reset the radio in my 2007 VW Jetta, battery died and the radio no longer works.


You have to visit a VW dealer, They will remove the radio with a special tool and enter the radio's serial number into VW's data system. This will retrieve the code. If you have owned the car from new, the code was on a tag in the owner's manual. It may still be there even if it is a used car.

I replaced my car battery in my 1996 Volkswagon Jetta and now the radio won't work. It actually says SAFE on the dial. How can I reset it


You will need to enter the radio unlock code. The lock code maybe on a sticker in the trunk, or consult a VW dealer to get the unlock code.

I own a 2000 VW Jetta. Radio completely Dead


Have you checked the radio fuse? You may have blown the fuse when you jumped the car. The fuse box should be out under the hood encased in black plastic.

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 advice on changing a battery on a 2000 VW jetta


I change the battery on my TDI by undoing the nuts in any order, positive first and then neg, or vice versa. If you happen to have a long wrench that can connect terminals, be very careful not to touch the other one, undo the neg first then. When you work on the positive pole do not touch any metal parts of the body, if you have not released the neg yet, otherwise you will see fireworks with the following fuse replacement.
When the batteyr is disconnected from the terminals the radio code will be lost. If you don't know your original radio code, you will have to go to the dealer and pay $105 for the code. Without that code the the radio will not work unless you have installed other than VW CD player
