The cars all come out of the factory with the same code (0000),BUT it can be changed,so if the supplying dealer put in there own code and then put it on the service mainframe,YOU will have to pay for it.
We in Europe have a sticker that comes with the book and most of us drivers dont bother to change it but if we did then we WRITE IT DOWN...(no they dont,they try to ******** the next owner)

Need radio card number for my 1999 Audi A6 because radio is displaying SAFE


You can get this code from your Audi dealer - However they will charge you for it and this is why I can give you the following advice to be able to get it for free!. Not many people are aware of this and this is why Audi Dealers will try to charge you at least $40 for this code.

When your Audi was supplied new it came with a keycard with your radio details and the code for the radio embossed on it. On the back of that card it clearly states and I quote as near as I can to the actual wording.

"In the event that your codecard is lost - please contact your Audi Network dealer and Audi will provide the owner with the code for your radio for FREE"

I know that you may have purchased your car second hand and not from new but that is not the point. Audi themselves have printed this on the back of the keycards supplied with these cars and you are entitled to get the code for free.

What happens is that as changes of ownership occur the keycards get lost and subsequent owners are not aware of this promise from Audi printed on the back of the card. Audi dealers will try to charge but they are NOT entitled to do this. Ring your local Audi dealer with the VIN no of your car which you will find on your registration document.

If you run into any bother with them wanting to charge - quote their own terms back at them and demand that they satisfy their own terms. If they do not capitulate tell them you want to speak directly with head office and that you will take it up with trading standards.

You will get your code - mark my words!

You should also be aware that these Audis cannot be decoded via serial except by the Audi Network from their own database and there is absolutely no other way of getting the code unless you send the radio to a specialist decoding workshop which will also cost a fair bit of money.

So - stand your ground - explain that you know your rights and you will get your code for free. One of the very few manufacturers that will supply for free - the other being Honda. The rest all charge.

Let us know how you get on. If you have any problems I may have an Audi Codecard here that I could scan for you but rest assured this is their own language and promise.

Hope it helps. Please do leave a vote for the solution. Thanks for using FixYa

Hi i need the code for a ford 4600 cd radio from a 2006 focus, serial number M032993 THANKS

You need to CALL THE DEALER and prove ownership and they will give you the 4 digit code. Not gonna find that info on here, sorry! The radio thinks its stolen ok, so the web isnt going to help you or anybody else that has that radio except for the dealer if you can prove ownership of the car that it came out of like I said earlier.

The radio code for a 1995 mitsubishi diamante

Mitsubishi dealer is the only one that can help you with the radio code. You will need to prove ownership of the vehicle and VIN number with the serial number of the radio. All radio's do not have the same code, otherwise a code would be useless in preventing theft, and theft is the reason why they have unlock codes.

96 volvo 850 cd player code needed


You will need to get the papers that came with your car, search all the documents that came with the car, the code to reset your car radio is written on one of the documents that came with your car. If you cannot get it, you will need to get the serial number on your radio and contact the dealer for the reset code, because, the dealers have the reset code, but you will need to tender prove of ownership before this can be done. You can also try 4877 as the code to unlock your radio.

I have an 04 Honda and recently the battery was disconnected. When I started it, I am getting an "error e" on the stereo display. I don't have the manual or the code. Any help getting the radio unlocked...

The dealer should have an unlock code but they require you to prove ownership. Sometimes you have to remove the radio and give them the serial number on the radio. That is the only way to unlock without the code.

If you are a regular at your honda dealer they might do it for free.

try another dealer. maybe try to get ahold of one of the techs at lunch time. this info should be free to the car owner, just be ready to supply the title to the car for some proof. maybe try buying the parts guys lunch or coffee and donuts....this usually works for this type of problem. unfortunaley this info really is dealer only..
