Is this the radio that came with this car or is it a new radio you've installed? Have you recently changed any other modules (like the CCM or the cluster)?

If it is the radio that has always been in this car, when you turn the ignition key to ON, the radio should recognize that it's in the car it belongs in and unlock itself automatically.

What's the back-story and what exactly is this radio doing (or not-doing)?

yes .. the radio came with this car , but when i disconnected it from the power and connect it again the radio did not start and a ( SAFE ) word appeared . This is because the radio need the CODE to operate correctly .
the code was written in the user manual which i do not have.

the ( SAFE ) word stayed on the screen and no way to operate the radio .

some body told me that i can get the correct code by software if i have the serial number >

i believe that somebody knows how to decode this radio

thx

No i don`t speak about VAGCOM . i am speaking about a special software , it is used when you have the radio type and the S/N of the radio .

Open your glove box...look for a white sticker on the side...sometimes the dealer will put one in the glove box and one on your owner’s manual.

He doesn't have his manual.:p And most techs skipped that step in the PDI, (pre delivery inspection) so more often then not the manuals are blank.

Glad you got your tunes back.:thumbup: The ironic thing is I get radio codes for people and my own radio doesn't work 3/4 of the time.........and I don't care I like the sound of my turbo better.:lol:
