Volkswagen Radio CodeLearn about Radio Unlocking

Before we start to generate a free Volkswagen radio code for you, it is best that we fully explain what radio unlocking is, why you need to do it and how you can do it. In recent years all modern car radios now come equipped with an anti-theft security system as standard. This therefore means that whenever the radio is tampered with or sometimes when the battery is disconnected from the vehicle, the radio will become locked. It will then display a request on-screen asking you to enter a radio code in order to unlock it. There is no way around this without a valid radio code.

In order for you to unlock your Volkswagen radio, you will need to get a radio code for it, usually this means contacting the manufacturer of your radio and asking them for one, which they will usually give you if you can prove you purchased the radio/the car it come with as standard. Unfortunately most manufacturers will charge you for a code to cover their ‘admin fee’. Alternatively you can obtain one from us, we make the process incredibly simple and you will not need any technical knowledge what so ever, it will take you under 10 minutes.

We are the Internets leading provider of free radio codes and we take pride in offering 24/7 support with our service, you can visit our contact us page and complete the form with any enquiries you may have. We will do our best to answer any questions and resolve any problems that you may have. We are currently able to obtain the radio codes for all models of Volkswagen Radios.

How to Unlock a Volkswagen Radio

The first step towards unlocking your Volkswagen Radio is by inserting your cars key into the ignition and turning it slowly until you hear a click and stop. If you have a ‘fob’ instead of a key press the fob insert the fob into your dash and press it once. This will turn on all of the cars electronics, meaning the radio will be turned on without starting up the car. You can start your car up fully although there is no point in doing so as you’ll be wasting fuel

The second step towards unlocking your Volkswagen Radio is entering your radio code. Once you have completed step one, your radio should now request an unlock code. The steps for obtaining at the code for your radio are detailed below. We highly recommend that you make a note of the 4 digit code that we give you as your radio code will always remain the same, this means that if you ever encounter the same problem again you can resolve it quickly without having to visit our website again. Entering your radio code is incredibly easy and we feel doesn’t need explanation if you are struggling there is sometimes a guide within the manual for your vehicle or radio.
