'98 a4 stereo code

Hey i ended up getting the code from the old dealer. its an audi concert stereo and the manager told me to hold FM2 and RDS for the word SAFE to turn to a 1000 and then type in the code using the radio preset buttons. However, when I hold FM2 and RDS, nothing happens, no matter how long I hold it for...it never switches from SAFE to 1000. I dont know why this is happening, would you know of any other way I should do it or press different buttons? Thanks appreciate the help.

That's usually how it works. On the Delta stereo you hold the FM1/2 and DX buttons. You can try different combinations though. Also, make sure you press both buttons at the same time - don't hit one and hold it down, and then hit the other - it won't work that way.

I have a 1998 audi a4 with a bose audi concert system. i need to put in the security code and from what i have found you can do this by holding scan and rds at the same time then you can enter the code but...


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!

The sequence of programming for 1998 Audi A4 Concert radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed. The radio is now ready for use!
Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Hi I got a 2002 audi a6 the radio displays safe but even if I keep scan and rds buttons pressed nothing happens.wat is the solution


it depends on year of car and make of RADIOHERE IS THE SETTINGS FOR A 2002 AUDI A6 Quattro V6 2.7L Turbo (APB) engine code
For the Audi Concert Radio
YOU STILL NEED YOUR RADIO CODE TO ENTER THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! tell me if this work for you
Entering Anti-theft Code

The following is the procedure to re-activate the radio if the display shows "SAFE". It is important that the procedure be followed in the correct order.

1. Turn on radio. The radio display shows "SAFE".
2. Press the FM2 and RDS buttons simultaneously and hold until "1000" shows on the display. Release the buttons. Do NOT press these buttons again, otherwise the radio will consider "1000" to be the code.
3. Use Preset buttons 1 ... 4 to enter the four-digit code number from your radio card. Preset button 1 corresponds to the first digit, Preset button 2 corresponds to the second digit, etc. Each press of the button increments the number by 1.
4. Once the code shown on the display is correct, press the FM2 and RDS buttons simultaneously and hold until the word "SAFE" appears in the display, then release the buttons.
5. The radio should unlock and be usable shortly afterwards.
6. If an incorrect code is entered, the word "SAFE" appears, first flashing and then continuously. You can repeat the above steps to unlock the radio once more, the number of attempts will be shown in the display. If an incorrect code is entered again, you radio will be locked for about one hour. After one hour - the radio must stay on and the key must remain in the ignition lock - if the display goes out, the you can repeat the above procedure to unlock again. The cycle - two attempts, one hour lock-up - still applies.
7. If you lose your radio code, contact your Audi dealer.

Note: Some European market Concert radios have a TP button instead of the FM2 button, so the description above with those units would require pressing the TP and the RDS buttons simultaneously.

Stupid radio!!


press rds and fm1/2 together and hold it til your radio indicates the numbers 0000 then enter your code using the buttons 1234 keep presssing the number one til u get the first digit of your code then go on to the next number and so forth. once you get the code in press rds and fm1/2 again til lthe radio automatically turns on.


This solution is close, but not accurate for my 1998 A4 2.8. You press and hold FM2 and RDS until the display indicates 1000. Immediately release. Then enter code with radio numbers 1 through 4, pressing each one till you get the first no. of the code, then for 2, press till you get second no. of code, etc. The press and hold FM2 and RDS until radio comes on.


Press & Hold RDS & TP at the same time , display will flash enter your correct code then press and hold RDS & TP together to save the code. Radio will be unlocked after that if the correct code is entered

Instructions to unlock stereo


THIS WAS POSTED ON THE AUDI TT CLUB WEB SITE.

Turn on the radio. The word "SAFE" appears on the display.

* Press the FM2 and RDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display. Release buttons. Do not, under any circumstances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to consider the number "1000" to be the input code number.

Use stations buttons 1 - 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card.( THE RADIO CODE SHOULD BE WITH THE OWNERS MANUAL-??) Use button 1 to enter the first digit of the code number, button 2 to enter the second digit, and so on. Station buttons 5 and 6 cannot be used.

* Once the code is shown in the display, press the FM2 and RDS buttons again simultaneously and hold them down until the word "SAFE" appears on the display. Soon afterwards, a frequency will be displayed.

(If you do not have the "Radio Code", the Audi dealer, or someone, will have to pull the radio out to get the serial number off of the back.)

The radio can now be used again.
