Uh oh, it sounds like your radio thinks there's been an attempt to enter the wrong radio code into the radio; the next attempt to enter an incorrect radio code will result in a display of "code 2", indicating a second failed attempt.
You must have the security anti-theft code for your Volkswagen radio from the car manufacturer, or from a Volkswagen dealer!
The sequence of programming for a VW New Beetle radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be set.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be set.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be set.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be set.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys to confirm this safe code entry.
On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For a few seconds a radio frequency will be displayed. The radio is now ready for use!
Wow! Could this procedure be any more obtuse!
