1999 Audi A6-Radio works off/on when I unplug-plug back in fuse.
My radio works off/on when I unplug-replug fuse. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn't. Is this a faulty head-unit or a wiring problem? Is there anyway I can reset the radio to work consistently?

Only thing I can suggest on this one is to remove the radio using the special tool radio release clips, and unplug the connectors from the back of the radio for about 5 minutes, then plug it back in and enter the security code. If the buttons still don't work then you'll need a replacement radio.
In back side of the radio, (for Audi A4, A6 - year 1999), you will find a blowed fuse = 10A (red colour). Replace it and that's all. Also: 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!
you will need to pull the radio out and get the serial number off the back of the radio unit. then call up your local VW/AUDI repair shop or dealer and ask them to look up the code for you. i had to do this last week with my VW jetta.
This is common in the audi cars. It may be that your ABS module is failing or the the connector to the ABS pump located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, with black metal lines going into it. Their is a large black connector that sometimes needs to be unplugged and cleaned and plugged back in
i) fuse box for the audi A6 is most probably on the right side close to the driver;s seat by the steering wheel. The driver door must be open to access the fuse box. Please check owner's manual.
ii) in the 2002 Audi A6 it is fuse #37. Please check owner's manual.
iii) remove the fuse for the radio then replace fuse.
iv) start the engine
v) the radio most probably will reset it self but you should not have to enter the security access code for the radio.
let me know how the works.
