What year and model. The radio is locked out. If the radio is written safe get a battery charger on it turn the radio on (preferrably key on and handbrake to shut off the lights) to make sure the radio doesn't shut off. Next leave it on about an hour or an hour and a half or until the display changes to 4 digits. Enter the code then and follow your manual nad the radio will be ok. You just need that 4 digit code. If you don't have it you need to pull the radio out and get the serial number and your vin to get it from VW.

Radio is in safe mode i tried twice and it locked me out i now know the right code what do i have to do to enter code again in a 96 audi a4


The sequence of programming for 1996 Audi 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!

For Audi A6 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
The fuse for the radio is no.# 37 fuse: F37 (20A - yellow colour). See picture below:

There is a second fuse on the back of the radio, (10A - red colour), but you have to pull the unit to check & change it. This is only course of action. You need special Audi radio extracting tools, (two radio keys).

Cant switch on radio - says: ''code 1''


The radio alarm has been tripped. Any loss of power to the system will cause this to happen. It wants you to input the 4 digit code to reset the radio. If you do not have it, you can pull the stereo and get the serial numbers, and ask the VW dealer for the code. It should be free info if you supply the serial numbers.
With the power on and SAFE showing on the display, press and hold the MODE and SCAN button together until SAFE changes to 1000. Release the buttons and using the first four station buttons enter the radio code.
Use button #1 to change the 1 to the correct code, pressing once will change to 2 twice to 3 etc
Use button number 2 to change the next number etc.

When you have entered the correct code; press and hold the SCAN and MODE buttons together until code disappears and radio comes on.
I hope this may help.
Good Luck!

Radio blocked


Blocked? I am guessing that it has something on the display, like"SAFE"? If there is power going to it, and signs of some life...it could be the car's radio alarm. When battery power is lost to the radio, it will trip an alarm. It requires a 4 digit code to work again.
If you have the owner's manual, you can find it in there. If not...
If you pull the radio, DO NOT disconnect any wires, and find the serial number on it, you can call a dealer and get the code for the radio.
Some cars hold down MODE and SCAN and the SAFE should change to 1000. This is where you input the numbers using the up and down to change number value & the first four station buttons to change to next number.
Good Luck.

You have to hit certain buttons before you can enter the code, and then hit those same buttons to tell the head unit that you're done entering the code. Sometimes it takes several tries before they'll work.

The other possibility is, if you enter it twice incorrectly, you have to let the car sit with the key on (but engine off) for two hours before trying again - it requires that time in between. Less than two hours and it'll ignore any attempt to unlock it.
