Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.

You should have been given the radio code for the vehicle when purchased, if not you will have to visit your local audi dealer for them to obtain the code from germany, check your audio handbook to see if the code is in there

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Audi A6.

Entering anti-theft code The following is the procedure to re-activate the radio if the display shows "SAFE". It is important that the procedure be followed in the correct order.

  1. Turn on radio. The radio display shows "SAFE".
  2. Press the P.Scan and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold until "1000" shows on the display. Release the buttons. Do NOT press these buttons again, otherwise the radio will consider "1000" to be the code.
  3. Use Preset buttons 1 ... 4 to enter the four-digit code number from your radio card. Preset button 1 corresponds to the first digit, Preset button 2 corresponds to the second digit, etc. Each press of the button increments the number by 1.
  4. Once the code shown on the display is correct, press the P.Scan and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold until the word "SAFE" appears in the display, then release the buttons.
  5. The radio should unlock and be usable shortly afterwards.
  6. If an incorrect code is entered, the word "SAFE" appears, first flashing and then continuously. You can repeat the above steps to unlock the radio once more, the number of attempts will be shown in the display. If an incorrect code is entered again, you radio will be locked for about one hour. After one hour - the radio must stay on and the key must remain in the ignition lock - if the display goes out, the you can repeat the above procedure to unlock again. The cycle - two attempts, one hour lock-up - still applies.
  7. If you lose your radio code, contact your Audi dealer.

Er. That is why it is a *code*.
"There can only be one".

If you have no pin code you will have to pay the dealer to look it up in the database. If your radio is in the original vehicle, that should not be an issue.

I have never heard of anyone successfully 'hacking' an Audi radio code....

My radio is on safe mode in my 1999 audi a6. i dont have my code wondering how to get it off safe mode.


Call a BMW Audi, or Jaguar dealer, and give them your vin number they will give you the code, if they want you to bring it in ask them how much they will charge it may be cheaper to get an after market radio and have it installed

I cant get my 1998 Audi A6 radio of safe mode


Look in the owner's packet in the glovebox. There's a second book specifically for the stereo system. There should be a detachable card in there with a four-digit number on it. That's the radio code. The stereo manual explains how to enter it to unlock the radio. If you don't have that code, you'll need to take the car to the dealership. With proof of ownership of the vehicle, they can look up the code and enter it for you (make sure they write it down for you for future use, and show you how to enter it, since they're going to charge you an hour's labor or so to do this).
