Ok, so I bought this 97 vw jetta trek. Somebody cut out the factory radio including the adapters so there just bare wires. I need to know the color coded factory wiring diagram so I can install a aftermarket radio. I kno BROWN is Ground and RED/WHITE is constant power but I need to know the rest I just keep blowing fuses trying to figure it out. Hope somebody can help me out. Thanks will be very much appreciated!

Go to a VW dealership they'll reset it and provide you with the code/s

Only if the selling dealer recorded the code. Most do not. Otherwise if the owner doesn't know, you get to buy a new radio.

REmove the radio from the dash, Write down the serial # and call volkswagen for the code. They will give it to you. There should be a technical assistance phone # in your owners manual.
