i had to install a new battery in my 07 new beetle last week and now the radio is in safe mode.anybody know the procedure to unlock this radio? it played fine untill i had a new battery put in.
dont know about standard radio in 2007 but it shows a picture of my radio in the owners manual. the manual did say something about when the battery was changed or went dead, you would have to take it to the dealer and have everything reset. there should be a way to reset it myself.
There is a way to do it yourself with the radio code. It is supposed to be on a sticker in the owners manual. The dealer will need the radio serial number and the cars vin to pull the code. Some want to charge you to get the code because they have to pull the radio to get the serial number. Somewhere in the owners manual it says the dealer will give you the number free of charge.
