VW Gamma Radio Code - How

should I go about getting the code number for my Gamma radio + CD autochanger?

It's the factory fitted stereo but the last owner removed the code tear-off from the VW handbook and it wasn't passed on to the German dealer, or me.

Thanks,


SD

Car radios can sometimes be re-coded using a PC & the appropriate SW.

Try your local independent car audio specialist. They'll be able to shed some light on this for you.

Thanks, fellers.

Luckily my radio is still working after the vehicle battery change I did yesterday, but I can see I need to get the code in case the battery dies or has to be disconnected again.

Cheers,

time was if you wired up a 9volt battery to a ciggy lighter plug, you could remove the battery without losing the radio codes and presets, garages did this all the time,I'm not sure if the latest vehicles allow this with all the techno wizardry, but I don't see why not.

I would have thought the dealer would be the best place if it was legit

I spent hours searching for a code for the aftermarket radio in my van.

It turned out that it does not have one ........ DOH.
