You should put the code in and then it should respond on its own.

Where can I find unlock code for 1993 auddi Quattro 100 Bose stock radio, or can u hive it to me


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.
First you must turn on the radio. Then simultaneously press the FM1 and the AM buttons at the same time, and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display. Use station preset buttons 1 to 4 to input the radio code.
If the code starts with "1", you don't need to enter this digit, move on and just use buttons 2, 3, and 4 because the "1" will already be displayed. If the code starts with "0" then press button 1 once to go change the "1" to a "0". Press button 2 as many times as the second digit of your code. Use button 3 for the third digit and button 4 for the fourth digit.
Once the correct code is shown on the display, you must once again press the FM1 and the AM buttons simultaneously and hold both of them down until the word "SAFE" appears in the frequency display. Then release the buttons. You will now have a radio frequency displayed and the radio has been unlocked. If you incorrectly enter the code twice in a row, you will have to turn the radio off and wait about an hour before you can try to enter the code again.

How to Unlock a Delco Radio - Instructions

1) Obtain the six-digit dealer code - yours is above. ( this doesn't apply: Contact your local GM dealer. If you explain the situation, most will provide the code to you. If they are not willing to provide the code, contact other GM dealers until you find one that will help you

2) Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position, without turning the engine over. Hold the preset buttons "2" and "3" for 10 seconds. The radio will display a three-digit code. Write this number down and then quickly press the "AM/FM" button. Three more digits will be displayed. These six numbers are the serial code for your radio.

3) Call the GM assistance hotline at 800-537-5140. Follow the prompts and select the brand of your vehicle. Enter the six-digit dealer code and then enter the six-digit radio serial code. The automated system will provide you with a four-digit code to unlock your radio.

4) With the ignition on, use the "Hour" button on your radio to input the first two numbers of the four-digit code. Use the "Minute" button to input the last two digits. Press "AM/FM" to set the code. The radio is now unlocked and ready for use.

Safe mode car radio


To unlock your VW factory radio from "SAFE" mode, you will need to enter the radio code. Typically, the code is written on a radio card included with the documentation for the vehicle when the car is first sold.

If you don't have the code, or have lost it, you can retrieve it by visiting your VW dealer. You will need the car's VIN number and the serial number of the radio (located on the body of the radio).

The procedure to enter the code is as follows:

Press the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously and hold them until "1000" appears on the radio display. Release the buttons as soon as this number appears.

Refer to your Radio Card and use the station preset buttons ("1", "2", "3" and "4") to input the code. Press the "1" button repeatedly to input the first digit, the "2" button to input the second digit, etc.

Press and hold the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously until "SAFE" appears again. Release, and the radio should be unlocked.

Do not enter the wrong code more than three times, or the radio will lock itself. Note the dealer can also enter the code for you (they may charge a small fee).

Pulled radio to get serial # and now I can't get the radio to go into code input mode. it just says "safe" and the icon for pause is on


If you've entered a bad code a couple times, you need to wait an hour while the radio and ignition are on. Then, turn on the radio, SAFE should be displayed. Then Press the FM1 button and hold it down, then while holding down the FM1 button, press and hold the AM buttons so that both buttons are held down simultaneously. Release the buttons. Now enter the correct code using the radio pre-set station buttons (one through 4). Button 1 changes the first digit in the code "1"000, Button "two" changes the second digit in the code 1"0" "three" 00, button 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 FM1 and AM button simultaneously as before until SAFE is displayed, then release the 2 buttons, and now the radio should now work.

How do I get the code to unlock my radio?


Unless somebody wrote the code down in your owners manual, you will have to take it to the dealer. They will push a series of buttons, get a code out of the radio, then call the factory to get the unlock code. I'm sure there is an associated fee involved.

I need a radio reset code for a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Radi model MR337276 serial #06179043B for Title 4A3AC54H31E016106. Thank you for your assistance


Your Code is 0642

Input the code by pressing preset 1 to scroll through the first digit, preset 2 for the second digit, preset 3 for the third digit, and preset 4 for the fourth digit.

When you have the correct code displayed, press the CD button to unlock the radio. If your radio does not have a CD button, some use the AM/FM or TAPE button to unlock as well.

Please be sure to rate me if I have been of assistance!

Need to input my radio code on 2005 Honda Civic


ok your radio displays ERR , OK 3 options let it sit for an hour turned on , to reture to CODE display , or pull the radio fuse out for a minute and put it back in , returning to the CODE display , or disconnect the battery for a minute , returning to the CODE display . you got the ERR display because the code was wrong or not entered correctly , make your choice of getting the radio back to the CODE display by 1 of those 3 choices , while the radio displays CODE , use the preset buttons , if the first number of your code is 4 , then press the #1 preset button 4 time , when the first number has been input , put the 2nd number in by pressing the #2 prest button , if 2nd number of code is 8 , press the # 2 preset button 8 times till the # 8 is displayed , and so on . you see where this is giong ? when you have entered all the numbers correctly you will have you radio back . when you say you have the radio code , good luck ! were rooting for ya .
