Hi

try reinstallation

This unit is designed for installation in cars, trucks, and vans with an existing radio opening. In many cases, a special
installation kit will be required to mount the radio to the dashboard. These kits are available at electronics supply stores
and car stereo specialist shops. Always check the kit application before purchasing to make sure the kit works with
your vehicle. If you need a kit but cannot find it available, call our toll-free “HELP” line at
1-800-645-4994.
UNIVERSAL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE USING MOUNTING SLEEVE
1. Remove the detachable front panel if it is attached to the chassis by pushing the “Release” button. Slide the mounting
sleeve off of the chassis. If it is locked into position, use the removal tools (supplied) to disengage it.
2. Check the dashboard opening size by sliding the mounting sleeve into it. If the opening is not large enough, carefully
cut or file as necessary until the sleeve easily slides into the opening. Do not force the sleeve into the opening or
cause it to bend or bow. Check that there will be sufficient space behind the dashboard for the radio chassis.
3. Locate the series of bend tabs along the top, bottom, and sides of the mounting sleeve. With the sleeve fully inserted
into the dashboard opening, bend as many of the tabs outward as necessary so that the sleeve is firmly secured to
the dashboard.
4. Place the radio in front of the dashboard opening so that the wiring can be brought through the mounting sleeve.
Follow the wiring diagram carefully and make certain all connections of the wiring harness are secure and insulated
with wire nuts or electrical tape to insure proper operation of the unit. After completing the wiring connections, attach
the front panel and turn the unit on to confirm operation (ignition switch must be “on”). If unit does not operate, recheck
all wiring until problem is corrected. Once proper operation is achieved, turn off the ignition switch and proceed
with final mounting of the chassis.
5. Carefully slide the radio into the mounting sleeve making sure it is right-side-up until it is fully seated and the spring
clips lock it into place.
6. Attach one end of the perforated support strap (supplied) to the screw stud on the rear of the chassis using the hex
nut provided. Fasten the other end of the perforated strap to a secure part of the dashboard either above or below
the radio using the screw and hex nut provided. Bend the strap to position it as necessary.
CAUTION: The rear of the radio must be supported with the strap to prevent damage to the dashboard from the
weight of the radio or improper operation due to vibration.
7. Re-attach the front panel to the chassis and test radio operation by referring to the Operating Instructions for the unit.
INSTALLATION USING KITS
1. If your vehicle requires the use of an installation kit to mount this radio, follow the instructions included with the
installation kit to attach the radio to the mounting plate supplied with the kit.
2. Wire and test the radio as described in Step 4 above.
3. Install the radio/mounting plate assembly to the sub-dashboard according to the instructions of the installation kit.
4. Attach the support strap to the radio and dashboard as described in Step 6 above.
5. Replace the dashboard trimpanel.

    Well, I don't know if it helps, but here are a few thoughts and hopefully they might give you ideas to diagnose the problem...



    1st possibility : there's an error in Michal's information. Although,
    it seems his setup is functional (I guess he wouldn't have posted
    photos with soldered cinch without testing it first) and for sure he
    cut the same wire as you did (the pictures are clear in that regard).
    Did you contact (PM) him ? Note : the fact that wire 10 connects to pin
    25 (SPDIF1) instead of 24 (SPDIF2) may be an error, but as you say, it
    doesn't matter : if you cut the wire from the CD, you shouldn't hear
    anything.



    2nd possibility : your models are different revisions and the connector
    pin assignment has changed (would be surprising, but could explain the
    difference between your findings and Michal's regarding pin 24/25...)



    3rd possibility : a problem in your setup. Are you sure your switch (I
    guess you have a switch at the end of the wires soldered to connector
    pin10) is OK ? Isn't there a loose wire or something shorting wires
    together ?



    4th possibility : radiation ... WARNING !!!! : the following could
    damage the head unit if the pin layout is incorrect, and I'll take no
    responsability - YOU'VE BEEN WARNED :-) !!!! OK, you hear the CD
    playing when the wire is cut and hanging in the air in high impedance,
    but what if you ground it (via a resistor to reduce the risk) ?



    5th possibility : an error in Michal's setup that would connect his
    SPDIF source in parallel with (and not instead of) the internal CD, but
    if this external source has a much lower impedance, it could "master"
    the wire and "override" the internal CD's signal



    Finally, you could do your own reverse engineering independantly of Michal's :

    - do you have access to an oscilloscope ? This could give you a better
    understandng of what's on each pin of that cable. If not, maybe you
    have a device (amplifier, PC) with a SPDIF input... then you could try
    (!!!AGAIN : I TAKE NO RESPONSABLITY!!!) connecting it to the different
    pins of the cable too, and see if and where you're getting an SPDIF
    signal...

    - at least, could you determine (with a multimeter) which pins are for power and ground ?

    - can you determine (with a multimeter again) if a pin from the cable's connector is wired for sure to either SPDIF1 of SPDIF2 ?

    - can you see on the CD player PCB what chip is responsible for producing SPDIF output and to which cable pin it's connected ?

    - as a last resort, you could do trial and error, and cut each wire in
    turn to see when music stops and if that gives a meaningful error...
    Maybe inserting a male/female connector with dip-switches in between
    would be the easiest to debug...



    Well, that's all for now. I can't promise I'll have time to come back
    anytime soon but hopefully some things above could help you go
    forward...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

One method of going about your concern is to look over the available records/documentations of the vehicle to ascertain the original dealer. You then would need to get in touch with this dealer armed with:

  • VIN;
  • proof of ownership;
  • model number and serial number of the radio/CD changer unit.
They in turn would look over their database to get the access/security code.

Some other methods that may or may not work are:
  • the security code is written/printed on the manual that originally came with the vehicle;
  • in a sticker or tape attached underneath/behind the ashtray, glove compartment or center console.
Perhaps you could post back the make & model of the vehicle and brand & model of the radio/CD changer.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

What kind of vehicle is this? If you have tried to GUESS the code, it has locked the radio out and you will have to go to the dealer to get it unlocked.

2002 TL WONT TACK RADIO CODE


Your vehicle's audio system will disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code in the preset buttons. Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from five digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.
You should have received a card that lists your audio system code number and serial number. It is best to store this card in a safe place at home. In addition, you should write the audio system's serial number in this owner's manual.

If you should happen to lose the card, you must obtain the code number from your dealer. To do this, you will need the system's serial number.

If your vehicle's battery is disconnected or goes dead, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens, you will see ''CODE'' in the frequency display the next time you
turn on the system. Use the preset buttons to enter the five-digit code.
The code is on the radio code card included in your owner's manual kit. When it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.

If you make a mistake entering the code, do not start over; complete the five-digit sequence, then enter the correct code. You have ten tries to enter the correct code. If you are unsuccessful in ten attempts, you must then leave the system on for 1 hour before trying again.

If the code card is lost, your dealer can access your code with your radio's serial number. To access the serial number, turn the radio on. It must display ''CODE'', then turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release. The serial number will appear in two sets of four digits (information obtained from Owners Manual).

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

To access the serial number, turn the radio on. It must display ‘‘CODE’’, then turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release.)

If your car’s battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens, you will see ‘‘Code’’ in the frequency display the next time you turn on the system. Use the Preset buttons to enter the five-digit code.

Instructions to unlock stereo


THIS WAS POSTED ON THE AUDI TT CLUB WEB SITE.

Turn on the radio. The word "SAFE" appears on the display.

* Press the FM2 and RDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display. Release buttons. Do not, under any circumstances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to consider the number "1000" to be the input code number.

Use stations buttons 1 - 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card.( THE RADIO CODE SHOULD BE WITH THE OWNERS MANUAL-??) Use button 1 to enter the first digit of the code number, button 2 to enter the second digit, and so on. Station buttons 5 and 6 cannot be used.

* Once the code is shown in the display, press the FM2 and RDS buttons again simultaneously and hold them down until the word "SAFE" appears on the display. Soon afterwards, a frequency will be displayed.

(If you do not have the "Radio Code", the Audi dealer, or someone, will have to pull the radio out to get the serial number off of the back.)

The radio can now be used again.
