Navigation

All navigation models

The Navigations coming in VW cars are assigned a unique code used as a security measure. The unit needs this pin every time there is a power interruption (battery change, blown a fuse, alternator change, radio disconnected, etc.). If your drive says SAFE and 1000, you must enter this pin key to continue using it. If you don't have this four-digit code, you can lookup it using the identification number on the back of the unit. Take out your radio carefully and find this number stamped on the label. Example: VEZ1Z2I6634770

How to get code for old models

A 4-digit code protects these units, as it happens on the newer models. Over the years, this measure has become obsolete; however, it has become a problem for owners who have lost the code card. If on the radio screen, you read SAFE and then 1000, then you need to enter this code to be able to enjoy it. You can calculate the code on this page by entering the serial number you find on the side of the radio. Example of a valid serial number for GAMMA V: VWZ4Z7K1130097. Any serial number for VW always begins with the letters VWZ.

Pull the radio out until you see the label affixed to the side. The serial number that you need to calculate the code comes in this label. Please write it down carefully or take a photo before putting everything back together. To get your Vw radio code, enter your 14-digit serial on the form you can find above and follow the simple process.

You already have the code, and you can't enter it? Follow these simple steps:

  1. Turn on your radio, and wait until "SAFE" becomes "1000". If "SAFE" stays on screen, leave the unit on for an hour.
  2. To enter a digit, you must press button 1 as many times as necessary. If you have to enter a "0", press the button ten times.
  3. Press button two repeatedly until the second digit of the code is entered.
  4. Enter the third and fourth digits using the corresponding buttons 3 and 5.
  5. Hold down the ">" button for several seconds to confirm the code.
  6. If the code is correct, the radio starts working as usual. If otherwise, it says "SAFE", the code entered is wrong.

Frequent questions

The most common doubts based on what the people ask us by chat.

We understand that it is always desirable that something does not cost; however, it is not possible to get a free code for Volkswagen, at least not online. It is possible that having the VIN at hand, you can call Volkswagen in your country, which should give you the code at no cost. If you cannot pay on this website, we recommend this site, which does practically the same but at a supplier price.

If you enter the wrong code too many times, the radio locks up with the message "SAFE 2". To enter a code again, leave the unit on for 1 hour. In all this hour, "SAFE" must be visible on the screen.
