Best bet is to talk to the Dealership, they have technitions that can better handle the situation.
My guess is they will tell you that the only method would be to either, "brute force" hack it trying an infinite number combination, or to buy a new head unit.
Best of Luck.

Try it, use rubbing alcohol and q tips to clean it all, you may need to clean the inside of the units as well.... Dip the q tip in the alcohol, do not pour the alcohol on the units.

SOURCE: audi a 6 radio stop working

I believe I have seen this fault before and if your lucky, unplugging the radio from the back and reconnecting after a few minutes may restore it. You will need specialist radio removal 'keys', see the link. You may be able to get these from Audi, and if you ask nicely you might be able to get a technician to pop it out for and try disconnecting it. You may need to enter your 4 digit radio code if/when it turns back on. Hope this helps

Radio developed fault. Sudden max audio output which cannot be reduced by volume control.Just before fault, a click was heard in the back of the car.


If you have steering wheel mounted controls then play with the volume switch and see if that drops the volume, if not unplug the steering wheel control harness for the radio an if that makes no difference then the radio is defective.

The circuit for the switch goes through the clock spring contact is the likely cause of the switch not working, it is not connected to the wiring harness in the steering column that goes to the radio.

there could be a broken wire in the steering wheel which would mean possibly having to remove the steering wheel but there will be an air bag that could go off which would be dangerous so its best left to the professionals unless you know exactly what you are doing as regards taking off steering wheels.
