Question about Car Audio & Video
These radios are tied in to the Audi network both by the serial on the radio and the chassis (VIN) number on the car it came from. This is a strict anti-theft measure to prevent unauthorised use of the unit.
Therefore they cannot be decoded by conventional means. Ideally you also need the VIN no of the donor vehicle. You have to take it to an Audi dealer with proof that you own the radio and they will run the numbers and give you the code.
The good news is there is no charge for having this done by Audi. It is specifically stated in the owners manual for that unit, that if the code is lost Audi will supply it free of charge. Make sure to quote this if they attempt to make any charge (some will try) so its important to be aware of that.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.
