Question about 1998 Audi A4
After a bettery change have been unable to use radio. keeps saying "safe". Have got code from Audi but no manual so not sure how to enter correctly.
Any help appreciated.
Okay here are your radio options. Audi will charge about $125 to extract the code from the radio but you may try this first
1. Look in the owners manual. If the car has the original packet with the owners manual and other pamphlets, it is likely that the dealer wrote the code down and put it in there in the glove box.
2. Audi puts the 4 digit radio code on a sticker in the spare tire compartment in the truck. It is a four digit code that will begin with 1 or 0.
3. Audi will use the code 1111 as a default code on rebuilt or replaced radios. try that first.
4. still no luck.... go to the dealer and pay the $125 and have them extract it.

I just did this, successfully, on an 2002 Audi a4 Avant, thanks to the radio manual. Follow these instructions if you have four 4-digit code at the ready:
Turn on the radio's power. When it reads: SAFE, push AS and RDS simultaneously. Then enter the 4-digit code, using the first four buttons used to program stations. Each will go from 0-9. When you have all four numbers entered, push AS and RDS simultaneously again. The radio should now play.
