Did you call your dealer with year, model and VIN number and ask for the radio unlock code?

Pls I cant unlock the radio grunding for my smart car


Safe mode means that you have tried many times with the wrong code , you have to wait for a short while so that it will allow you to put the code again. Usually it is 30 minutes while ignition is on.

Try to get the correct code from this link MERCEDES BENZ CAR RADIO CODES

Safe mode car radio


To unlock your VW factory radio from "SAFE" mode, you will need to enter the radio code. Typically, the code is written on a radio card included with the documentation for the vehicle when the car is first sold.

If you don't have the code, or have lost it, you can retrieve it by visiting your VW dealer. You will need the car's VIN number and the serial number of the radio (located on the body of the radio).

The procedure to enter the code is as follows:

Press the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously and hold them until "1000" appears on the radio display. Release the buttons as soon as this number appears.

Refer to your Radio Card and use the station preset buttons ("1", "2", "3" and "4") to input the code. Press the "1" button repeatedly to input the first digit, the "2" button to input the second digit, etc.

Press and hold the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously until "SAFE" appears again. Release, and the radio should be unlocked.

Do not enter the wrong code more than three times, or the radio will lock itself. Note the dealer can also enter the code for you (they may charge a small fee).

I have a 2001 Audi A6 symphony 4b0 035 195A, auz5z4y0144932 with safe mode on can anyone retrieve the unlock code for me, I bought the car and the guy didn't give me the code, thanks!


The radio code is only obtainable from an Audi dealer. They would have to e -mail Audi with the vehicle details and the radio serial no to get the radio code. They would then enter the code for you.

How Do I Get My Radio Out OF Safe Mode? Anyone?


Hi.

The radio goes in safe mode when the battery gets disconnected, or if for some reason the radio lost power connection.

To get the radio out of safe mode you will need the anti theft code.
This is available with car documentation, in first page of the in car entertainment booklet, or on first page of the car booklet (not the car manual).

Once you have got the code, do the following:

  1. Hold down both the AM/FM and the SCAN button at the same time, until the display shows "1000".
  2. Use the buttons 1,2,3,4 to change each of the digits until you get displayed the same code as printed on documentation (ensure that it is the right one).
  3. On some radio (programmable models), the default code is "1111" or "1234".
  4. Press and hold the AM/FM and SCAN buttons again until the radio is starting.
  5. If you fail twice the code, the radio will lock up in safe mode, and you won't be able to enter the code again.
  6. If the radio is locked, or if the code is lost, the unlock can be done at the nearest car dealer, usually for a small fee, or for free.


Regards.

1998 Audi A6 Quattro radio in safe mode


Er. That is why it is a *code*.
"There can only be one".

If you have no pin code you will have to pay the dealer to look it up in the database. If your radio is in the original vehicle, that should not be an issue.

I have never heard of anyone successfully 'hacking' an Audi radio code....

My radio is in safe mode i have no manuel


The radio usually goes into safe mode when the power to the radio is interrupted. You will need to know the radio "code" in oreder to re-program the radio. The code may either be found in your owner's manual if it was written there, or by going to the VW dealer. he will need the serial number for the radio (found on the rear of the radio) and the VIN number for your car. In some years the radio code was also put on a sticker inside the trunl by the spare tire, but maybe not in 1998.
