1999 VW Cabrio built in Mexico on 6/99. I need the code to enter into the radio which is in SAFE mode. I am the third owner, no manual. The code on the right side of radio is the exact number on one of the drivers door stickers.

Re: radio unlock code
For this code you most likely would have to get it from VW. Unless you get lucky and fine it on the internet. There is a good site to fine that can off stuff just look up the web site scribd.
Hope that this helps.

the radio code would be on a card with the original owners manual. If you do not have the original owners manual or bought the vehicle second hand, the only way to get the code will be by going to your local VW dealer with the serial number/ownership slip and paying to get the code.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your VW radio from the car manufacturer, or from an VW dealer!
The sequence of programming for VW 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. 3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. 4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. 5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. 6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. 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!
Wiih most radio units....If you have the proper code and have NOT tried
more than 15 times to enter an incorrect code....you should be ok.
Turn OFF ignition switch and remove the key. Switch OFF interior lights. Switch ON Radio unit and SAFE will appear.
Leave everything alone for a period of ONE HOUR. During this time
NO power (no matter how small) should be drawn from the battery.
This is why the interior lights MUST NOT come ON when the door is
opened. Trunk should also remain closed. In the event of any power been
drawn from the battery in this time...You must start all over again.
Radio should after this time return to standard mode...Usually 4
flashing bars. Then enter your code. Dont forget to lock in the code
and all should be fine
All the best with it
You will have to call the dealer or search online for radio codes. You may have to remove the radio if you do it online to get reciever info. You may find the code on the back of the radio but usually not. Be prepared to pay for this info when you find it. If it was easy to get codes then they wouldnt be nessasary
The radio code should be in the owners manual, if that is missing then the local VW dealer should be able to give you the code if you give them the VIN #. They might charge you for this service so ask first!
I assume you have this unlocked by now, but here's an answer for someone else for the future :-) if you have the original radio that come with the car, look in the wheel well in the trunk, where the spare tire goes. (yep, you'll need to stand on your head). there is a sticker that will have the 4-digit code on it. enter that into the radio. I can't remember off the top of my head which one it is, but either the >> Scan or the am/fm button will be the "enter key"
