I purchased a replacement radio on ebay and it requires a code. Is there any way to get this code? JA: Has the battery been recently disconnected? Have you checked the manual or the glove box for the radio code? Customer: The radio is from a salvaged 2005 jetta that the seller is parting out so I don't have access to the original car JA: Are you fixing your Jetta yourself? What have you tried so far? Customer: I need the code for the radio JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you? Customer: No

We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them.

Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn.

I don't have a pic because I installed the radio waiting for a response. I can disassemble if need be but would rather not
