The code is to stop someone being able to use your stereo if they steal it from your car. Unless you have the code in your Owners manual, I would suggest that you may have to go to A dealer and get it from them. They will probably charge a small fee for this and you will have to take some form of proof of ID that you actually own the car. Also, you will need the VIN and all model details off the car.

If you pull the radio out there should be a 4 dig code written on it and if not than write down the serial # and the VIN # of the Veh and go to the nearest dealership and they should get the info for you!!!!

My golf mk4 am/fm/mini-disc player comes on but can't tune to any station. Only displays FM 76.0, do I need a radio code? I bought it as used from Japan 8 months ago. Please, I need your advice!

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


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

The sequence of programming for 2003 VW Golf 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!

Good day. I drive a 2007 City Golf, I recently took my car in for its service. When i received the car back the radio was saying SAFE?? What does this mean? I Bought the car at a second hand car dealer and...

the radio anti theft system is operated when,for any reason, the power is turned off/disconnected,(safe mode)in some markets,the dealers do not keep the factory code (0000) OR the code inputed by the owner...SO, if anybody turns the power off(disconnects)the radio DIES....and garages will then charge you to "repair" it.
the garage would have known this but i cant see them offering to pay for disconnecting your battery.....
the only alternative is a specialist radio shop who may be able to
short the code out..in england the company is "radioactive" and they charge £15.00 at your house.....

CD player quit working after battery installation

Some of these new systems are very finicky, to reset you need to disconnect the negative battery cable wait a few minutes then reconnect, new electronics are sensitive to the difference.
It's possible the low voltage caused by the dying battery actually damaged your CD player, digital electronics are great but they have some serious weaknesses too.
Find out what brand and model your CD player is then go online and do a search for a service manual for your player, you may find an easy fix that way.
Best of luck!

Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.

The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.

The CD Player in my VW Golf 2002 modelis

Without knowing the model of radio fitted to your car I would make the following assumptions

The CD Player is Locked Out:

Either

Because the battery has been disconnected and the clearing sequence in your handbook was not followed correctly you may have to wait several hours between attempts to unlock it and you will need the original code at hand as a fail safe

Or

The CD player is from another VW car and the on-board code in the memory does not match that one.

Resume:

You need to look out the little book that came with the car and read up on clearing the code for that particular model.

Last resort is a VW Dealer who should provide assistance free of charge , according to the handbook

Vw golf .... alpha...... safe 2

"2 safe" means that your radio was in safe mode, and then the code was improperly entered 2 times. you either need to disconnect your battery and leave it for up to 4 hours (i've been told), or leave your key in the ignition for around an hour.

once it comes out of "2 safe" mode, then it will just say SAFE and give you the numbers 1-0-0-0. You just need to enter the 4 digit code (using your pre-set numbers 1-2-3-4 to change the numbers), then hold the seek > button and your radio should come on.

If you don't have the code, call VW. they'll find your code for free. they did for me. if not they'll charge like $50 or something.
