I suggest you contact the vendor and ask for the VIN of the donor car. If he has it and it comes up 'clean' a dealer should be able to help you.Purchased from Ebay. They indicated will provide all necessary info and nothing came with the unit. Remember my VW had a code sticker on a business car just in case battery dies or like you say stolen. Thanks.
Must be some anti-theft protection. Owell, get Ebay to refund your money.Thanks didn't have much luck. No workaround. Seems like once it's locked, out of luck. Don't know why that would be the case. YOu would think they can change and pair the radio to a new VIN easily.
