How do you reset radio of a 1996 VW GTI I have the code but don't know how to reset it?
This is a cut and paste from
procedure - With the power on and SAFE showing on the display,
press and hold the MODE and SCAN button together until SAFE changes
to 1000. Release the buttons and using the first four station
buttons enter the radio code.
Use button #1 to change the 1 to the correct code, pressing once
will change to 2 twice to 3 etc
Use button number 2 to change the next number etc.
When you have entered the correct code; press and hold the SCAN
and MODE buttons together until code disappears and radio comes
The key is in knowing the radio security code. It is a four
digit number normally in the manual portfolio pack. Mine is on a
small piece of paper marked "Radio Information" from the Mfg. Other
people have posted that they have found this information in their
manual, or on the door post. Others actually mention it being on
the radio chasis, yet that would negate the idea of securing the
radio from theft. The last choice is to contact the dealer with the
VIN or the radio serial number.
