  1. Pre-Owned '04 Passat w. existing iPod connection?

    Hi guys- I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I recently bought a 2004 Passat...love it...and it looks as though there was some customized wiring attached to (what I'm guessing is) the back of the existing factory head-unit. The two connections are ran out through the front of...

  3. 2011 VW Jetta TDI Stereo

    Wondering if anyone knows if a stereo install kit for a 2010 jetta will fit my 2011, they look almost similar in size and shape. Another Question I've heard some people say that VW won't service your car if a aftermarket stereo is installed. Anyone know if this is true?
  4. 2001 - Aftermarket BT Mic placement

    I just installed the Kenwood KDC-BT945U into my car last night. Works great with my Windows Phone 7 (Samsung Focus) for streaming music via bluetooth. I did NOT yet install the external mic because I wanted to ask you folks what a good method and placement might be. I installed a similar deck...

  6. Stock Radio Buttons Not Working

    I have a 2000 Jetta. I use a cassette adapter to listen to my ipod. Tried ejecting it today for the first time in years and it was jammed.

  7. Reset 2005 Jetta Stereo in "Safe" mode?

    General Volkswagen Discussion
    I just bought a used Jetta (2005) and the stereo is in 'SAFE" mode. The previous owner tried twice to enter the Security Code and failed. Now there is a "2" before the word "SAFE". The manual says to power on the unit and wait at least an hour. We tried powering on and waited more than 4...
  8. Jetta 2006 Stereo Problems after Jump Start

    Hey everybody, My 2006 Jetta was recently victim of a terrible jump start (The cables were hooked up backwards). Thankfully, there doesn't seem to have been much damage, except that the stereo/radio won't turn on anymore. The lights don't turn on, and nothing happens when I hit the power...
  9. Cassette Player Problem : constant ERROR and "beep!"

    New Beetle
    Hello VW Forum, I have a 1998 New Beetle with the standard cassette-player stereo. The other day after trying (with no luck) to get a cassette adapter working with my ipod, the cassette player started causing an additional problem. Now, whenever I turn on the stereo, it sits silent for a moment...
