Question about 1998 Audi A6
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).

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.

SOURCE: radio safe code needed
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

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....

hi, what it usually mean is that you have shifted down in to a lower gear whilst the revs where to high so then your gearbox goes into safe mode to protect it from further damage the only way to reset this is to take the car to a main dealers and have a diagnostic check done.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
