If you don't have the radios security code, you can try entering 1111
as some replacement radios were coded with this security code. Your
local Audi Dealer may be able to provide the correct security code for
your vehicle, if you provide them with your vehicles Identification
Number (VIN). This VIN is typically located on the drivers door pillar.
The radio should have a serial number on the unit which also can be given to the Audi dealer and checked in their data base of radio security codes. The serial number will start with AUZ, one radio serial number for example is AUZ1Z9A1965412.
To enter the code on the Wiesbaden Radio: Turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed.
Push and hold the AM/FM button, then while holding the AM button down, push and hold down the SCAN button. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons, and the display should show 1000. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (1-4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button 2 changes the second digit in the code 1"0"00, button 3 changes the third digit, button 4 changes the last digit in the code. In most cases the first digit is a 1 and won't need to be changed. You push each pre-set station button multiple times to step through the digits (1-9) to get the correct code displayed.
Code 1246 would entered by pushing button "2" two times, pushing button 3 four times, and pushing button 4, six times.
After entering the correct security code, push and hold down the AM/FM button, then while holding down the AM/FM button, push and hold down the SCAN button. The display will then show SAFE, release the two buttons, and now the radio should play correctly.
