The dealer is the only way to go - no one else can look up the unlock code. They look it up based on the VIN number of your car - and they usually charge an hour's labor to do it, which is ridiculous, but that's unfortunately how it goes. Call around to a few other VW and Audi dealers and see if you can find another one who'll do it for less. You may get lucky with that.

    Just curious - why was this rated as a "thanks for trying"? The definition for that is basically that it was information that really wasn't helpful at all. The reason I ask is that it's the truth - the dealer is the only one who can give you that information - and as a result of this rating, my overall rating has been dropped because of it. Ratings of 1 or 2 are detrimental to the experts on the forum and can drop us down low enough that we're not eligible to get paid from the site.

Can I retrieve the radio code with the Odyssey vin number? The code is not in the glove. I do not have the manual.

No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.

You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.

DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.

I have a 93 Audi 100s with the Gamma stereo. I just bought it and the stereo says SAFE, The Audi dealership provides no help. how do I get the code to get it out of safe

the gamma stereo is made by mitsubishi in europe,no dealer keeps the codes as you can change it yourself, if you have the code in the fist place,you will have to look in yellow pages for a firm that will recode your UK cost around £20.

How do I reset the radio in an Audi tt 2004? The indicator light says "SAFE"


The radio is in safe mode and requires the security code to reactivate it. First check through your service documentation for a credit card sized card that Audi print the code on.

If this is missing the only other way to retrieve the code is

1) Remove the stereo from the dash and retrieve the serial number stamped on the back of the stereo.

2) Contact your Audi dealer with both the serial number and the chassis (VIN no) of your car. You will find the VIN no on your registration document.

3) If you do it this way and have retrieved both of these numbers yourself your Audi dealer will run the numbers and give you the code free of charge.

Hint: Some dealers will attempt to charge for this service but they are not authorized to so. On the original safe code card from Audi it specifically states that if you lose the code your Audi dealer will supply this free of charge. Please ensure to quote this information to the dealer if they attempt to make any service charge.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer and thanks for using FixYa.

Radio code audi navigation

The only way to get this code is to either have it in the owners manual or go to the dealer.  The dealer has to get online using the factory scan tool and put in the VIN and radio serial number to generate a radio code via the Audi Server.

Instructions to unlock stereo

If you don't want to spend the 135, find out the name of the dealer who origonally sold the car when new. They should have the code on file form the pre inspection that they did. It is a myth that there is a code inside the trunk or on the radio, so don't waste your time looking.

I just posted a solution for this problem. It comes straight from the radio manual. The dealer should have told you this. If you want him to do it he'll charge money for his time. IF YOU LOST YOUR CODE. THE DEALER CAN HELP YOU OR IF YOU HAVE YOUR 4 DIGIT CODE: dd43c71.jpg
