IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer! You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/
The sequence of programming for 1997 Audi A6 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. For example: we have the security code "5079". Then: 3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted. 4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted. 5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted. 6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted. 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!
The RADIO CODE is the security number from device car; generally this is located in the stocker label in back side radio or in the last page of the owners manual. If you dont find it, need call to the delaer and with the VIN and Serial number they can send it to you (sometimes you need to pay for this service).
you will need to pull the radio out and get the serial number off the back of the radio unit. then call up your local VW/AUDI repair shop or dealer and ask them to look up the code for you. i had to do this last week with my VW jetta.
most of us techs write down the code after we instal the radio, in the owners manual in the radio section, however if you dont find it there tke copy of your title and registyation to an Aude delaer and they will be able 2 look for your code and instruction to recode your radio
You don't have to pull the radio. Take your title, registration, and photo ID to the service department, and as long as the radio is still installed in the car, they'll look it up for you based on the VIN of the car. They may hit you for up to an hour's labor to do this (I've seen it happen, and it's ridiculous). Make sure they write it down for you for future reference.
As for removing the radio, you need security keys to unfasten it from the dash. They're available at a dealer or most stereo shops.
