Try pressing the "mode" button, or find a button that causes the screen to clear it's message. then use either the preset radio numbers or the seek arrows to select number to enter your code. Once your done press the same button. This is how my brothers car worked. We ended up having to play with it for a while but we eventually got it.

My Audi A4 went onto safe mode and I put the wrong code into the radio. It has now gone back into safe mode and will not let me put in the correct code. How do I reset completely?

Wait one hour before attempt to put again the correct code!!! Now the radio is under anti-theft protection. IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!

The sequence of programming for 1997 Audi A4 radio 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.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
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. The radio is now ready for use!
Please do rate my response. Thanks!

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.

How to input radio code for my s reg audi a4

Okay here are your radio options. Audi will charge about $125 to extract the code from the radio but you may try this first
1. Look in the owners manual. If the car has the original packet with the owners manual and other pamphlets, it is likely that the dealer wrote the code down and put it in there in the glove box.
2. Audi puts the 4 digit radio code on a sticker in the spare tire compartment in the truck. It is a four digit code that will begin with 1 or 0.
3. Audi will use the code 1111 as a default code on rebuilt or replaced radios. try that first.
4. still no luck.... go to the dealer and pay the $125 and have them extract it.

98 Audi A4 Entering radio Code

This solution is close, but not accurate for my 1998 A4 2.8. You press and hold FM2 and RDS until the display indicates 1000. Immediately release. Then enter code with radio numbers 1 through 4, pressing each one till you get the first no. of the code, then for 2, press till you get second no. of code, etc. The press and hold FM2 and RDS until radio comes on.
