Radio cd symphony blocked in safe.the car is audi a6,i don't have the cod.

You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!

You can find the radio code at:

The sequence of programming for 2000 Audi A6 radio 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!

Just recently my battery died and I got a change in now my Radio is in cd safe mode. The radio or cd wont come on or work. When I bought the Audi A6 Quatt, 2000 it did nt have a manuel book. So I'm just...

You need to call dealer and provide your VIN# for the code. It's a theft deterrent issue and dealer is only source. After you get code write it down in glovebox w/Sharpie for future refs.

After disconnected battery on 2000 A6, engine won't start or engine stay on for few seconds and then die off, noticing the fuel is being cut off, seem like the engine is in safe mode, if there is such.

On this cars , you need to use so called back up battery or memory saver , if you need to replace battery . If you need to perform some electrical work and battery has to be disconnected , then you better have a tool that capable of doing throttle body adaptation. Any time throttle body looses power , you have to do adaptation after, in order for it to work normaly.
Can not do it manually.(adaptation).

Safe mode need code

Unfortunately you have to take that to the dealer - they do this to prevent theft. Usually there is no charge for 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.
