You will need to pull out the radio to get the serial number on the side. there is a sticker, write down all the numbers and take it to the dealer(vw), they should give you the code without too much hassle.

What buttons do i push to take the concert radio in my 2002 audi TT out of safe mode and in code mode to reset it


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of programming for a 2002 Audi TT Concert radio is:
1. Simultaneously push "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then simultaneously push again "SCAN" and "RDS" keys to confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

The radio is now ready to use!

First of all you should exit from 2 safe mode. Then turn ON the radio and let it turned ON for at least one hour, in order to exit from 2 safe mode.

I have a 99 a6 quattro i have the code for the radio but when i press rbds and pscan buttons nothing happens it is in safe mode and wont let me do the steps to get out of it!


First of all be sure that your four digit security radio code is correct. If you had attempted three times without success to exit from safe mode by inserting the code, radio is blocked in safe mode for a while. Now turn ON the radio (in safe mode), and let it turned ON for one hour, then follow this procedure.
The sequence of VW radio gamma programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.

For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

Reset electronic gas meter , i had a gallon of gas in car and when i put more gas in it did not change


you have to shut off the car completly. You cannot have the key in any position besides off. It will not reset until the key is turned off then on again. Its a safety feature, your car shouldnt be on while fueling, not even the radio in aux mode.

Radio reset code


If you made 2 errors, the radio will locks up. You could pull out the radio for several day, or months, but never will reset this hard SAFE.
The solution is easier than you are thinking; "Just turn on the radio, and turn on the switch key, but don't run the car. Leave ON the car switch and ON the radio for one hour".
After it, you will be able to use your unlock code. (Holding Mode+Scan until SAFE change to 1000... )
Remember... you have just 2 oportunities to enter the right code
