I replaced the OEM radio in my 99 1.8 Passat with another factory radio ( same part number ) . I went to the dealer and gave them the VIN from the car it came out of and the number stamped on the radio case and they gave me the code. I tried it twice and it just flashed SAFE then displayed 1000. Waited 24 hrs ( key in ignition per manual ) and tried it again - no luck. Can anything be done to get this out of SAFE mode ? If the VIN and the number on the radio didn't match up they couldn't have given me a code , right ?

Post or pm me the number, and I'll see what my generator gives me (just need the radio serial number VW#Z#########)
Please, I joined this thread cos I have similar problem. I recently changed the dash board of my vw passat 1998. it came with a Monsoon radio. Now the radio needs the code to start working. Please do help with the radio code. The Monsoon serial number is: VWZ5Z7D3032467
