99 Audi A4 - FM range limited from88 to 90

I recently bought a 99 Audi A4 from Japan. The car radio came with FM range limited between 88.00 to 89.90. It seems this is a legal limitation in Japan. My intention is extend the FM range up to 106.00 as happen with other car radios. Is this possible? Is there any fix for this problem?

How do i get the audi radio off safe mode?


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for yours Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer! For Audi Concert the sequence of programming 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 rate my response. Thanks!

Vehicle battery was disconnected for extended period of time and now radio will not play. What is procedure to activate radio ????????? This is a 99 audi a4 am-fm cd factory radio


The radio probably has an anti-theft code stored in it. If you have one, check the owners manual under radio and see if it says anything about resetting the code. If not, try a dealer and see if they can retrieve the code, or reset it. When you do get a code, write it down so you'll have it when the battery gets disconnected again.

Have a car impoted from japan and need to know how to get local radio station frequencies like 93.7


You are going to have to buy a local radio from a junk yard or an after-market radio. The frequency range for broadcast radio is different in Japan than it is in the US (88 Mega Hertz to 108 Megahertz) in the US and 76 to 90 MHz in Japan. There is a device called a frequency range expander and you can find them on ebay sometimes but no assurances how well it will work.

Check out the website

it is how to get a japanese car working in the UK but you will get the idea.

I have a Audi A4, the radio doesn't work properly, the range that it picks up is limited


It depends on the terrain. FM is very local. For AM, there is a tuning screw next to where the antenna plugs in. For all, make sure your antenna is 31" from base to tip.

No AM radio reception in my 2002 Audi A4


do you get any stations, even weak stations on the AM band?  If not you have a bad radio and need replacement.  Try having someone hold the antenna as you scan the AM band.
