Re: unlock procedure for 1998 Audi A8 matshushita/...
Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number from your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.

look in the glove box for a radio recode # it may even be in the owners manual. suggest you look 1st in glove box for a printed number stamped on the inner part of glove box, if this does not help you, please repost your question.
Look in the owner's packet in the glovebox. There's a second book specifically for the stereo system. There should be a detachable card in there with a four-digit number on it. That's the radio code. The stereo manual explains how to enter it to unlock the radio. If you don't have that code, you'll need to take the car to the dealership. With proof of ownership of the vehicle, they can look up the code and enter it for you (make sure they write it down for you for future use, and show you how to enter it, since they're going to charge you an hour's labor or so to do this).
this is a security feature that Audi does on their OEM stereos. you have to go to the dealer and ask them to get you the security code to unlock it. check if you still have your original factory manual, as it should be listed in there.
There wer 3 diffrent radio options for that particular vehicle. All three have diffrent ways to unlock the radio. If you can tell me what type (Bose, Gamma, or Delta) I can give you the unlock procedure.
