Turn radio on and leave! It could be minutes or hours.....depends on how many attempts to input code have been made! The radio will eventually be ready to accept code! If you turn radio off before it reaches the code stage the process starts again.......so turn radio on and leave, just keep checking the screen for indication of code ready to be input!
Radio P.I.N. (Personal Identification Number)
Your PIN. must be entered if the battery is disconnected. The P.I.N. is shown on the
security card that was originally in the glovebox of the new car. Please keep the card in
a safe but accessible place (not in your car), as this safety feature is provided as a theft
To enter the P.l.N.:
•turn ignition to accessories and turn radio on ("1" or "CdE 1" appears),
•press the radio buttons in your P.I.N. order,
•the radio will shortly begin to play.
If an incorrect P.I.N. is entered the number "2" or "CdE 2" appears on the display.
Following three incorrect P.l.N.s the display shows" - - - ", and the radio must remain
connected to power for approx. one hour before the correct P.I.N. can be entered.
Therefore, if your car repair requires battery disconnection you may wish to provide the
servicing dealer with your PIN.
If the P.I.N. number is XXXX, contact your Holden Dealer. He will require proof of
ownership and the Vehicle Identification Number shown on the inside front cover of this
handbook. There may be a nominal charge for this service.
Use the first four radio station preset buttons to enter the code.
1: Push radio preset#1 until first digit of your code appears. 2: Push radio preset#2 until second digit of your code appears. 3: Push radio preset#3 until third digit of your code appears. 4: Push radio preset#4 until fourth digit of your code appears. 5: Push either tape or cd button.
What to do if your radio says OFF instead of CODE (Courtesy of mittech)
If your radio says OFF it means you entered the wrong radio code three times. To get it to say CODE again do the following.
1:Turn the key to on or accessory. 2:Push the power button so that the radio display says OFF. 3:Let the car sit for 1 hour. 4:The radio display will go blank. 5:Turn the radio on and it will say CODE again.
'SAFE' Is displayed because the radio is protected by a 'CODE'
The more wrong codes you enter the longer the word 'SAFE' will remain on the display... Look through all your paper work & try to find the 4 digit 'CODE'... eg: 2456 this can then be entered by pressing the 12456 preset buttons.
Failing that you will have to go to a audi dealer they will be able to get it from a database or buy a aftermarket stereo.
