how do i reset the radio code for a 1997 Volkswagen Golf

If your radio is in SAFE mode. You will need to have the four digit code, then hold down the MODE and SCAN buttons at the same time till 1000 comes up on the radio use the volume button to scan up and down till code is entered. Press and hold MODE and SCAN again till SAFE flashes again, if code is correct your radio will work. You have three tries to get it right then you have to wait around 30min to retry.

If you don't have your code you can try to call a dealership and give them the number on the back of your deck, however they are not suppose to give out the codes over the phone. I had to call around ten dealerships till I found one in Iowa city,Iowa that gave me the code over the phone.
