    how do we remove the radio from 1998 a6 2.8?????

  • Anonymous Aug 23, 2008

    I have the exact same issue. I have a 98 A6 Quattro that had to have the entire fuse box replaced and after I took it to the mechanic my radio is running in safe mode. The Audi dealer wants to charge $75 to give me the code. This is extortion! -For a radio code that takes them all of 60 seconds to look up! Give me a break! I am a single Mom and need to buy school supplies, etc...so the $75 radio code is just not a priority. I feel that dealer takes advantage.



    I am in the market for a new car next year, but will not be making another purchase at Carerra Motors in Bend, OR despite the fact that I love German cars. I have owned 2 VWs, 3 BMWs and 3 Audis and over the years they have nickle and dimed me to death! I am done with them. Great cars with a HORRIBLE local dealer. I am sure that the Saab, Volvo, or Lexus dealers would be MUCH more helpful. Or perhaps the German care dealers in Portland. Still....that would be a three hour trip just for service after the purchase.

    I had my battery changed at a non-audi repair shop and now the radio is flashing a 'safe' message. It is a 97 A4 quattro. I understand that I need a code to bring the radio back to normal use. Where do I get that code. I checked the owners manual but did not find it. Who do I go to or how can I get audi to give me the code. How do I contact audi or how can I get that code. Thanks for any tips or help. Leo

You don't have to pull the radio. Take your title, registration, and photo ID to the service department, and as long as the radio is still installed in the car, they'll look it up for you based on the VIN of the car. They may hit you for up to an hour's labor to do this (I've seen it happen, and it's ridiculous). Make sure they write it down for you for future reference.

As for removing the radio, you need security keys to unfasten it from the dash. They're available at a dealer or most stereo shops.

The code is in your owners manual. If you dont have it anymore then your radio needs to be pulled out. Take your car to your local Audi/Volkswagen Dealer. They will pull the radio and run the serial number threw their computer system and give you the code, maybe for a small fee.

I have a 99 a6 quattro i have the code for the radio but when i press rbds and pscan buttons nothing happens it is in safe mode and wont let me do the steps to get out of it!


First of all be sure that your four digit security radio code is correct. If you had attempted three times without success to exit from safe mode by inserting the code, radio is blocked in safe mode for a while. Now turn ON the radio (in safe mode), and let it turned ON for one hour, then follow this procedure.
The sequence of VW radio gamma 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.

For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
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....
