How to Unlock Your VW RCD 300 Radio with a Code Calculator
If you have a Volkswagen car with a RCD 300 radio made by Blaupunkt, you may need to enter a code to unlock it if the battery is disconnected or replaced. The code is usually found on a sticker in the user manual or on the radio itself, but if you lost it or don’t have it, you can use a code calculator to generate it.
A code calculator is a software tool that can calculate the radio code based on the serial number of the radio. There are many online services that offer this service for free or for a fee, but you can also download a code calculator program and run it on your computer.
One of the most popular code calculators for VW RCD 300 radios is the Blaupunkt Code Calculator by DND Services Ltd. This program can calculate codes for various models of Blaupunkt radios, including the RCD 300. You can download it from their website[^1^] or from other sources on the internet.
To use the Blaupunkt Code Calculator, you need to follow these steps:
- Find the serial number of your radio. It is usually printed on a label on the side or top of the radio. You may need to remove the radio from the dashboard to see it. The serial number should start with “VWZ” and have 14 digits.
- Run the Blaupunkt Code Calculator program on your computer and select your radio model from the list. For RCD 300 radios, you should choose “RCD 300 BVX”.
- Enter the serial number of your radio in the input box and click “Calculate”. The program will generate a four-digit code for your radio.
- Turn on your radio and enter the code using the preset buttons. For example, if your code is 1234, press button 1 once, button 2 twice, button 3 three times, and button 4 four times.
- Press and hold the “SCAN” button until you hear a beep. Your radio should be unlocked and ready to use.
If you have any problems with using the Blaupunkt Code Calculator or entering the code, you can contact DND Services Ltd for support. They also offer a postal service where they can unlock your radio for you if you send it to them.
