That's weird that they won't help you out. Usually if the stereo is in the car and you show proof of ownership of the vehicle, they'll give you the code for a fee. I'd call another Audi dealer (or a VW dealer - same corporation so they should be able to help) and see if they'll do it for you. Typically they look up the code based on the VIN of the vehicle, but obviously since your stereo was replaced they can't do it that way. Hopefully another dealer will be more understanding of the situation and will help you out. That's the only way to get it though.

My Audi A4 car stereo beta auto reverse shows SAFE2 and all the buttons are not working, what do i do to make it work again?

You'll have to bring the car to a dealer. With the VIN and the serial number of the radio they can look up the security code. Be prepared - you might get this done for free or a flat charge, but many will charge up to an hour's labor. Be sure they give you the code written down for future use.

I need the stereo code for a 98 honda accord

Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.

What is the code to unlock the Audi A6 1998?

This Is a General Manufacturers Code Which They Always Want You To Come In and They Pull The Code For You. I would Suggest That If They Do It for Free....Make Good Dealer Friends =) ...Rarely In some cases with other car manufacturers they allow you to call customer service with a VIN and All verifications pertaining to your vehicle....Anothers words, Its Gotta Be Legally Yours =) Hey try a Car Audio dealer too. they may charge too a small fee but for Audi's Nice A$$ Stereo systems it will be worth it.
