Question about 1999 Audi A6

1 Answer

I have an 1998 audi a6, the radio is in safe mode. I red the other responses to the solution to this problem but how long do you have to hold the SCAN and RDS buttons? I held them for about 2 minutes but it didn't get me anywhere. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

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 any 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.

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

My audi a6 car stero


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for yours Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer! For Audi Concert the sequence of 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.
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!

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

1998 Audi A6 Quattro radio in safe mode


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....

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

1999 audi A6 need radio code please


DO YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL RADIO MANUAL THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE? THE CODE IS PRINTED ON THE CARD IN THE RADIO MANUAL. THAT PAGE ALSO GIVES THE INSTRUCTIONS TO GET RADIO OUT OF "SAFE" MODE.

YOU NEED TO HOLD DOWN THE BUTTONS DESCRIBED IN MANUAL TO GET THE RADIO DISPLAY IN THE CODE ENTRY MODE.
