Radio must be left on for one hour. If you entered the same number twice, then the code is incorrect. You have to get the 14 digit number off the side of the radio and give it to an Audi dealer to get the correct 4 digit security code.

I put in the wrong code for the radio in to many times after changing the battery in my 2000 Odyssey, I now know the code for my radio but the device is locked and i need help unlocking it.


Just wait one hour and it will reset and you can then try it again. You have ten chances. If for some reason you start to put it in wrong again, just put in any digits as if that were the 5 digit code. If you don't complete, it will lock again and you will need to wait another hour. I hope this helps and good luck.

My radio in my 1994 540i bmw is off beacuse i didn't put the code in soon enough, what do i do?


Is the problem that you did not put in the code soon enough, or that you tried three wrong codes and locked it out? I don't think there is a time limit, but all of us have punched in wrong codes and locked out our radios before. If the display says WAIT, you tried three wrong codes.
If it is locked out, you have to drive for an hour with the radio turned on before it will let you try again. If you disconnect the battery during that hour, you just reset the 1-hour timer back to zero so you have to wait longer.

2007 vw jetta radio code please!!!


Send the request via email through this site these guys can help or go back to dealer and get them to get it for you.

Below is procedure once you have the code:

* Turn on radio -- the word "SAFE" will be displayed.

* First press the MODE button and then press the SCAN button and hold them down simultaneously until "1000" appears in the frequency display. Release the buttons. Do not, under any circumstance, continue holding the buttons down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to take the number "1000" as the code number.

* Using the first four radio station buttons, enter the code number found on your Radio Card. Use button 1 to set the first digit of the four digit code, button 2 to set the second digit, etc. The first digit of a four digit code must be "1". If your code number has three digits, the first digit on display must be set blank.

* Once the code is shown on the display, press and hold the MODE button and SCAN button simultaneously until the word "SAFE" appears in the frequency display. Release the buttons. A radio station frequency will automatically be displayed. The radio will now play once again.

If, when cancelling the electronic lock-up, a wrong code number is entered by mistake, the word "SAFE" will appear in the frequency display first blinking, and then continuous.

You can now repeat the entire cancelling procedure but only once. The number of attempts will be shown in display.

If the wrong code number should be entered again, your radio will be locked up for approximately one hour. The radio will not play. Leave the radio switched on. After an hour, you can cancel the electronic lock-up as previously described.

This cycle, two attemps - one hour lock-up continues again. //

Can't see the 1000 sign when im trying to unlock my radio


May be you did it wrong the first two times and it's just locked itself.
To unlock it to a stage when you can put code in , you need to have it on for one hour .No matter how but it should be on for one hour(you can drive with it on , or put the key on and leave it with battery charger for one hour).
After that read manual carefully and follow instruction
step by step on how to put code in.
You have only two tries again. You do it wrong and radio will lock itself up.

Anti theft lock code on radio will not reset.


You must leave the radio switched ON for at least one hour. Switch off everything else...especially interior lights and make sure there is NO other power draw from the battery during this time..... If anything else is switched on during this time, or if you switch Off the radio unit, it will be necessary to start all over again.
After this time, and with the radio still switched on, you will be able to enter code. Dont forget to lock in the codes after you enter them and all should be ok.

Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.


The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.

Unlock radio in 98 beetle


I've had this happen twice when the battery died. It goes into the SAFE 2 mode if you try entering it and don't do it right and then you have to leave the radio on for 1 1/2 hours to have it come on to 1000 and then set it with each number one at a time and then hold down right reset until he beeps on. So, if you are discouraged as I was, the answer is to leave it on with the SAFE showing for over an hour and it probably will come on with the 1000 for setting eventually.
