Can I retrieve the radio code with the Odyssey vin number? The code is not in the glove. I do not have the manual.


No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.

You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.

DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.

I have a 1999 cabrio changed the battery now radio is asking for code I do not have the code what is my solution is there a default code i can try


Probably depends on the year/model of the VW. For a 1999 through 2002 Cabrio, you would need to do this: obtain the unlock code that was shipped with the vehicle. If you don't have the unlock code, your local dealership can pull the radio and look up the code with the serial number. Once you have the unlock code, then turn on the radio. You should see SAFE displayed. After about 3 secs, "0001" should appear. Use the station preset buttons 1 through 4. Preset 1 changes the first digit of the code, and preset 2 changes the second digit, etc. Enter all 4 digits of the code. After code is entered, press right side of "Seek" button for about 2 seconds, until an audible signal is heard. If you hose up and get the wrong code...will go back to SAFE displayed. You will get another chance to enter the code. After 2 failed attempts, you have to wait 1 hour again for it to unlock. So carefully enter the correct code the first time.
Volkswagen uses the radio lock feature to prevent unauthorized users of your audio system and will not allow your radio to operate without the proper unlock code.
Volkswagen began using the anti theft feature around 1990 and is still in use in most Volkswagen vehicles today!
Step 1 - Retrieve radio serial#

Step 3 - Purchase code at

  • You will receive your radio unlock code, via email.

  • Approximate code retrieval time is 30 minutes to 24 hours.

To do it yourself you will need to have the radio removal keys to unlock the radio compartment .
look at this site and you will have an idea :

VW Premium 6 Monsoon code Unlock


You do have to have the vin # to get the code to unlock most of the time but they may be able to get for you off serial # on top of radio. You would need to call VW dealer and they would give you another # to call. It is free if you have the vin, for reasons of radio theft you need vin most of the time.

How can I remove my radio from my 2001 cabrio vw so I can get the radio serial number to reset my radio. I lost my code number to reset radio :-(


You do not need to take the dash apart, there are two little slots oneon each side of the face of the radio, you need special removal tools to unlock it and it will pull right out, but first check in your owners manual, or in the spare tire well for the card, or sticker which has the serial number as well as the unlock code for your radio.

Code for a 2002 vw cabrio radio


Take out the radio. sometimes the code has been written on it. It also might be written on the owners manual.
If not, take the radio and your VIN (vehicle identification number) to the dealer with proof of ownership of the car.
If you are nice to them they just might give you the code. My local dealership gave my code to me like this.

2000 cabrio radio code


The code for each car is different, it can be found in your books that came with the car if the original owner left it in (it has to be written in the section that deals with the stereo and security); if they took it out and it is not available, you can call a dealership and give them the VIN number and they should be able to give you the code for your particular car. They are not supposed to charge for this service but if you are getting nowhere you can call Volkswagen directly and talk to customer service.
Good luck
