So I have a 2001 Audi A6, and for some reason my middle console deal has been saying "cd in SAFE"? I've unhooked and rehooked the battery and have checked the fuse, it just doesn't seem to wanna go ba


You will need your 4 digit radio code. Sometimes you can find a sticker in the trunk next to your spare or in the glovebox. Otherwise you have to pull your radio for the serial number and call Audi for the code. I just used these instructions found on Fixya:
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.
You have three tries to enter the code correctly. If you do not, you will be locked out for at least an hour of car operation time. Good luck.

For a 1998 Audi Quattro with a Delta radio, the button combination is DX and FM1/2.

Stereo Says Safe and Can't listen to it


Get the code from your dealer with the car's VIN if the system is OEM. Chances are the code is somewhere in the owners manual package that came with your car....so much for theft proofing...if you or the PO haven't removed it.
If you have the code, like 0095, you press and hold two buttons on the RHS of the Bose Symphoney II, the PSCAN and RBDS buttons IIRC for about 3-5 seconds...the SAFE should go out and 0000 appear on the screen. You then use the first four program buttons to cycle each number (1 for first 0, 2 for second 0, etc.) to the program code. When you've entered the program code, press the PSCAN and RBDS buttons again to start the radio. I don't think the ignition has to be on.
Next time use a battery jumper...I prefer the portable kind that can be recharged through the power socket/lighter. I just replaced my battery ($153 genuine Audi OEM vice $300 installed) and had no issues with the radio. BTW, the auto up on the drivers and passenger windows probably has to be reset. Lower the window(s) all the way, raise them up and HOLD the switch up for 3 seconds...the auto up will reset.
