Can you find the radio code for my wife's 2000 Cabrio? Here is the serial number: VWZ4Z7X7022263. It's nice to have a 'connection' at the dealer Thanks!
i am no longer able to do this service anymore. i dont work at the dealer anymore and therefore do not have access to the server to retrieve the radio codes. sorry people i wish i could still help but i cant.

ok i got it. i changed the serial number to what i think it should be. here is what i think it should be. VWZ9Z7V3715100 if this is correct then here is the code. 0946 let me know if this works for you.
This is an awesome service--thanks so much for your help in advance!
I had so many shops (and dealers) say they wanted to charge me $80+ to get my radio working merely because my battery had be disconnected. Turns out that Wal-Mart carries the radio removal tool for $5
You are enabling my love of music!
Serial #: VWZ9Z7V3926304
You use the first 4 buttons from the left, push them one at a time to fill in the code. The first button is the first # in the code, etc.

Overheard on 27 June 07, one lady to another when they saw my Harli in a parking lot at West Point, "maybe he found it on the clearance aisle at the Volkswagen dealer"
Hi, I just replaced my headunit a few days ago and am looking to sell my old one. If you could help me out, that'd be great!
Model #: CQ-JV1069XC
Serial #: 5142697

Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!
i can deffinately get your radio code for you but like it says in the first post of this thread. the radio serial number looks something like this
if you can get the correct serial number for me i will be able to get the radio code for you.
Can't believe I stumbled across this site. Have had my Etienne for 3 years, 2 of which without sound on the radio after replacing battery. If anyone can assist with a radio code I would really appreciate:
Radio SN: VWZ5Z7A0512265
Appears there are a bunch of folks in the same fix. Thanks for any help.
Veedubster, you rock! However, I find it sad that the local dealership didn't return either of my phone calls. If it wasn't for forums like this and good peeps like you, we'd be in a mess of trouble. Thanks again.

Next question regarding unlocking radio. I have a '91 Cabriolet with a Heidelberg VII radio. The radio appears to be unlocked (thanks to the code provided by veedubster) but there continues to be no sound. When I turn the radio on I get a low bass popping noise that seems to indicate the speakers work, but no sound coming out when I play the radio or tape deck. The fuse on the back of the radio is good. Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

does that stereo system have an amp? I'm sorry for my lack of knowledge on this one but at the dealer I'm a bit blind to the older cars. we only work on newer cars so that one is a bit too old for me to know about. if it has an amp it might be a bad amp or bad connection to the amp. another problem might be that the speakers are blown. also where did you get the radio? or when was the last time the radio worked right? i need to know as much as possible to give a better diagnosis.
Radio is original to the car and worked fine until battery replaced. I entered the code you gave which took it out of SAFE mode. But the only sound I get out of the speakers is the POP when turning on the radio. Stations change, cassette plays, but no sound. No mods to the original radio or speaker system whatsoever. I'll try keeping the radio on for a couple of hours and then reenter the code just in case I made too many bad attempts previously. But I did this just this morning.
Any other suggestions? BTW, thanks for the help.
if you have already entered the code and it took it out of safe mode then there is no way that i know of to re-enter the code. i think the best thing to do would be to try another speaker. another option if you are wanting to try re-entering the code is to disconnect the battery and then enter the code again. that might work. if you do that though you should do what is called a capacitive discharge. this seems stupid but you would be surprised at what this has fixed for me in the past. what you do is disconnect both battery cables and then touch them together WITHOUT THE BATTERY CONNECTED. i cannot stress that enough i have actually had people misunderstand me and do this with the battery connected. anyway this with take all of the extra electricity out of the circuit by discharging the capacitors. this totally clears the the built in memory of electronic devices. this has fixed a lot of cars for me so try that and then re-enter the code and see what happens. hope this helps. without being there its kind of hard to diagnose a car.
