Get Your VW Radio Code for Free

Getting a Volkswagen code is complicated since it is more complex than looking it up in a list or database. Each serial number is different, which means there are infinite variations. Therefore, getting a code for free is difficult, but if you can't afford it, open the chat and paste the code "FREEVW2076". Our team will know what it is about and will let you know the conditions so you can get your code in less than 30 minutes.

4-digit radio code lock

What is a Stereo Code?

The VW radio code is a security measure implemented by Volkswagen to protect the radios against malicious use. Over the years, this measure has ceased to be helpful (since no one tries to steal such a unit) but has become a problem for the owners since, in time, the card with the code is lost. You can find more info about codes in this article by Lifewire. In short, you must have the four digits of your code to use the radio after you have locked it. The lock will occur after each power interruption.

My VW Radio Reads "SAFE"

After entering several wrong codes, Volkswagen radios will display the message SAFE or 2 SAFE on the screen. This means you cannot make any more attempts and avoids the possible abuse of trying to guess the radio code. To be able to enter a code again, you must leave the radio powered ON for 60 minutes. The engine doesn't need to be running; leaving the key in the accessory position is sufficient. After this time passes you'll be able to to enter a code again. In the case the radio don't respond, remove the battery connector for half a minute and then try again.

Code Not Working

The codes we generate are the original factory-assigned codes. If the code you received does not work, please get in touch with us and send us a picture of the radio label (where the serial number is visible). We will check that everything is ok and generate another code if that is the case. The factory code will not work in a few instances due to memory tampering (you can see the broken warranty seal). In these cases, the only solution is to read the memory via the DUMP file.

Read code from DUMP file

If you know how to read your radio's DUMP file, you can get your Volkswagen's radio code for free even if the memory has been tampered with. We can't help but recommend the Digital Kaos forum radio codes sections. On this forum, several active users will read the code for you in a matter of hours.

Screws 3d icon

How to Extract the Radio

The removal process of a VW radio differs depending on the model and year of manufacture of the car. Usually, you only need a trim removal tool and a screwdriver. Use the trim tool to remove the mold surrounding the audio unit to access the four holding screws. Pull the stereo unit out once these four screws are removed until you can see the sticker on the top or side. We recommend that you take a picture of this label before reassembling it.

We recommend the use of plastic tools to avoid scratching the radio frames. When removing the radio, do so gently to avoid disconnecting any wires.

No sound 3d illustration

Sound Not Working

It is possible that after activation of the radio, everything works correctly except that you cannot hear anything in the speakers. This problem is mainly due to the speaker connector being unplugged. In this case, you should remove the unit again and ensure all connectors are properly plugged in. If you cannot do so, we recommend seeing a professional.

How to enter VW Radio Code

Congratulations on obtaining your VW radio code! Now, it's time to input it and start using the radio. For it, follow the next steps:

  1. Power ON the radio and ensure it reads CODE or 1000.
  2. Repeatedly press the button 1 to enter the first digit of the code.
  3. Repeat this process for the subsequent digits using buttons 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
  4. To confirm the code, press the "OK" button. If you don't see an "OK" option, try holding ">>".

Confirming the code after entering it is essential; use the corresponding button. If the code stays on the screen, you are not confirming it. If, after confirming the code, the stereo unit asks for the code again or says "SAFE" then the code you are entering is incorrect.

About us

We specialize in electronic engineering and have dealt with radio codes for over two years. Using our techniques, we get any Volkswagen audio unit's original SAFE code (factory set) with a serial number starting with VWZ. This tool is intended for the owners of the audio units (and not for the wrongdoers), and we ensure it since we can only get the code for cars older than 2015. A radio over 7 years old is of no interest to any offender due to its low price on the second-hand market.

Every day, we work hard to provide a high-quality service to ensure the satisfaction of every customer. We invite you to look at our Trustpilot profile, where some customers have left their reviews.

We are an independent service and do not agree with the Volkswagen trademark. The name, logo, or other related elements belong to them and are used on this website for identification purposes.
