  11. Stephen, technically you could connect the amplifier turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your car is on and off whenever your car is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amplifier turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

If you do not have the radio security code, you would have to obtain it from the local Volkswagen dealer. Hope this helps. Good luck with unlocking your 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio radio.

  34. I want to install an amp in a 2008 Volkswagen jetta 2.0 turbo wolfsburg edition. Does the radio have rca jacks in the back of it? And I would like to get the wiring diagram for a it if possible.

  35. Chris, ask and you shall receive: 2008 Volkswagen Jetta Car Audio Installation Chart.

    As for your RCA jacks, most late model vehicles do not have RCA outputs on the factory radio to feed an audio signal to your aftermarket amplifier. You would have to install a line out converter to supply an audio output. Here is the Line-Out Converter you need:

    Scosche 2-Channel Speaker to RCA Line Out Converter

    When splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you install a line out converter, your rear speakers will still work properly. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2008 Volkswagen Jetta amplifier installation.
