My car radio and CD is not working at all when i change battery.


some cars have security in the radio and if it was turned on when you unhooked the battery the radio probably lost the code. unfortunately you will probably need to take it to a dealer to get the radio unlocked.

Is there a radio code? I am about to change the battery.


There is probably a radio code, though it is wise to proceed as if there is even if there isn't. Keeping the electrical system energised while changing the battery will keep anything with a memory alive and remembering the current settings - time, date, radio stations, speaker settings, trip computer data and suchlike...

People happily pay top prices for used cars only to later discover half the stuff they will eventually need is missing. One of these is often the radio and possibly other security codes.

There are several ways to feed power into a car electrical system while the battery is changed. The favourite way is to obtain a device that plugs into the cigar lighter or power socket. These can be self-contained or temporarily use a third car battery.
Such memory-savers are available in a variety of prices and complexities. The rechargeable battery-booster intended to plug into the power socket that is often sold to unsuspecting people through gift and mail order catalogues can double as a memory-saver, which is about all they are good for.

If you have a radio code then I suggest you find it and also read the manual. Lots of radios have a security system that can be disabled, temporarily or permanently and this would be the best thing to do before you start your job.

When changing your battery, please don't forget to read and observe the safety information - under certain conditions a battery can go off like a small grenade.

Radio does not work will not prompt security code


Disconnection and/or draining of the battery is interpreted by your Jag as a stolen radio so you have to go back to the beginning and reenter the radio code. The CD player problem may go away once the radio is properly identified.

Changed battery now radio doesn't work


By disconnecting the battery the radio thinks that it was being stolen so it went into security mode. You will need to re-enter the security code for the radio and it will turn back on. The code may be in the hand book or you can get it from the car dealer as it is on record from the factory unless it is not original

Radio code


If you don't have the radios security code, you can try entering 1111 as some replacement radios were coded with this security code. Your local Audi Dealer may be able to provide the correct security code for your vehicle, if you provide them with your vehicles Identification Number (VIN). This VIN is typically located on the drivers door pillar.

The radio should have a serial number on the unit which also can be given to the Audi dealer and checked in their data base of radio security codes. The serial number will start with AUZ, one radio serial number for example is AUZ1Z9A1965412.

To enter the code on the Wiesbaden Radio: Turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed.
Push and hold the AM/FM button, then while holding the AM button down, push and hold down the SCAN button. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons, and the display should show 1000. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (1-4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button 2 changes the second digit in the code 1"0"00, button 3 changes the third digit, button 4 changes the last digit in the code. In most cases the first digit is a 1 and won't need to be changed. You push each pre-set station button multiple times to step through the digits (1-9) to get the correct code displayed.

Code 1246 would entered by pushing button "2" two times, pushing button 3 four times, and pushing button 4, six times.

After entering the correct security code, push and hold down the AM/FM button, then while holding down the AM/FM button, push and hold down the SCAN button. The display will then show SAFE, release the two buttons, and now the radio should play correctly.

Pull your radio out and look on the back for your radio serial number and then call Honda with that code and they will give it to you.
