I had the same experience. Basically the dealer needs to pull the radio, get the serial info of the radio, vehicle VIN etc then call it into Audi - they will provide the 4-digit unlock code. My dealer wanted $80 for time and effort.
What I did - spent $5 for a set of special removal tools (ebay) you need to pull the radio. I pulled it myself and -surprise- there on the top of the radio someone had written the code. Once you have the code there is a series of steps you need to follow in order to input it correctly. I found what i needed at this web site: http://www.ibiblio.org/tkan/audi/radios/radios.html
In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.
The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.
Code for the radio I assume. You can go to a Audi dealer and pay up the nose to get it working again or go to this website which is far cheaper to get the code and the instructions how to do it yourself
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.
hold rbds and pscan till you see numbers then use the radio memory buttons to control the number you want to put in after the numbers are put in hold rbds pscan again till u see it says safe and radio works.
I just posted a solution for this problem. It comes straight from the radio manual. The dealer should have told you this. If you want him to do it he'll charge money for his time. IF YOU LOST YOUR CODE. THE DEALER CAN HELP YOU OR IF YOU HAVE YOUR 4 DIGIT CODE:
