    Obviously no responses. Unfortunately, Audi (and I'm sure others) have a lock on the code and therefore I was forced into going to the dealer to get the code. Quite a $$$ maker! For the price of the car (if u purchased new), you'd think they'd give it to u for free!

    A big thanks for trying to help me. I finally went to my local Audi dealer and had it coded. $61 bucks! Got the the code which is different than yours, but I appreciate your help. You'd think Audi would just give it to you (perhaps online). Nobody is interested in a radio out of a 98 vehicle. They (Audi) indicated that the fee is for labor since they've got to pull the radio, but still.....

I was told by the Audi dealership that each stereo has it's own code and to get it you have to pull the stereo. They also said that to reset from the SAFE code that you turn the ignition on(car not running) for one hour then the 1000 should appear, then put in "your" stereos code and press and hold the scan button.

I had the exact same problem on my 1998 Audi A4 Quattro Sedan I just purchased. I read a couple of other posts that said to try looking for the radio code in the spare tire compartment in the trunk. Sure enough on the right hand side of the compartment was a information label and on it someone had written the code 1174 in pen. I then left the key in the ignition and the radio on for an hour. Then I pushed the DX and FM1/2 button and the same time until the "1000" number appeared on the display. Then I pushed in the code 1174 using the 1 - 4 tuner buttons. For example the number 1 key I pushed until the number 1 appeared. Then pushed button number 2 until the number 1 appeared, pushed button 3 until the number 7 appeared and button 4 until number 4 appeared. After I had the code 1174 on the display, you again push the DX and FM1/2 button at the same time and the radio unlocked and worked perfectly. I hope that this helps. I have the Delta (Bose) AM/FM Cassette radio in my car. Good Luck!!

Hi,
Go search on a Chevy Forum, but likely the solenoid that shafts the transfer case is faulty. You might try resetting it by disconnecting the Neg. battery connection overnight....IF your truck has an alarm or radio key code you MUST know how to reset these b4 disconnecting the battery!!

I want it know the radio code for my honda crv ???????????


Anytime you have a dead battery or if the battery is disconnected the radio will lock-out. This is part of the onboard security system and is designed to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in another car. The radio code can only be reset by the dealer if you don't know the code. If you take it to the dealer, take your picture ID with you as well as your proof of registration,as they will not reset the radio for anyone but the registered owner. (At least, they"re not supposed to.) They can also program a new PIN for you that you can remember so you don't have to go through this again.

Code for a Ford Mondeo 6000cd radio


Hi Geof

Your radio code number should read: 5796.

I trust this will do the job.

I have no other code for your model.

Please let me know if this works.

Okay. So my 1995 Volkswagen stereo is in safe mode and everytime i press the two buttons, it just blinks and won't let me enter the code anymore. How do I fix it?


With the radio in safe mode, you have to disconnect the battery again to reset the radio so you can enter the right radio code. If you don't have the radio code or it's wrong, keep me posted. be glad to help you get your radio working again. Good luck, friend.

Instructions to unlock stereo


If you don't want to spend the 135, find out the name of the dealer who origonally sold the car when new. They should have the code on file form the pre inspection that they did. It is a myth that there is a code inside the trunk or on the radio, so don't waste your time looking.

Battery Replacement now resets ??


Whenever battery power is disconnected, windows can "forget" their settings. Lower both windows simultaneously. Then raise them. When closed let go the window controls for one second then pull them up simultaneously again and hold for a count of three.

Thant should reset your windows.

Good luck.
