Re: I DONT KNOW WHAT IS MY RADIO CODE FOR MY 2001...
You need to remove the radio ( special tool required available from MATCO, Snap-ON, etc ) and record the serial number for the radio. Take the VIN number you have and the Serial number to the dealer and they will be able to retrieve the code for you.

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.
You might have a tough time getting that , unless you are able to contact the original owner of the radio. You usually need the VIN number off of the car the radio came out of , to be able to get a code from a dealer. This prevents theives from getting stolen radios to work.
Check inside your trunk wheel well by the spare tire. In some years they put the radio code on a sticker in that location. Otherwise you will need to take the radio serial number to the dealer along with your VIN number. They can then give you the code. Better if it's the original radio with the car.
