Try pulling the deck from the dash, sometimes it is written on the outside of the unit.

Hi i need the radio unlock code for a 1999 Audi A6 quattro please because my brother changed the battery after it died, and it reset the electrical system and we dont have the code for it. If you guys...


Hi,

Unfortunately I cannot supply you with a code but I can give you some very useful advice that will ensure you get your code direct from Audi for FREE!!

Not many people are aware of this and Audi Dealers often try to pull a stunt where they will charge you for this code. However..... read on.....

When your Audi was supplied new it came with a keycard with your radio details and the code for the radio embossed on it. On the back of that card it clearly states and I quote as near as I can to the actual wording.

"In the event that your codecard is lost - please contact your Audi Network dealer and Audi will provide the owner with the code for your radio for FREE"

I know that you may have purchased your car second hand and not from new but that is not the point. Audi themselves have printed this on the back of the keycards supplied with these cars and you are entitled to get the code for free.

What happens is that as changes of ownership occur the keycards get lost and subsequent owners are not aware of this promise from Audi printed on the back of the card. Audi dealers will try to charge but they are NOT entitled to do this. If you run into any bother quote their own terms back at them and demand that they satisfy their own terms. If they do not capitulate tell them you want to speak directly with head office and that you will take it up with trading standards.

You will get your code - mark my words!

You should also be aware that these Audis cannot be decoded via serial except by the Audi Network from their own database and there is absolutely no other way of getting the code unless you send the radio to a specialist decoding workshop which will also cost around £40.

So - stand your ground - explain that you know your rights and you will get your code for free. One of the very few manufacturers that will supply for free - the other being Honda. The rest all charge.

Let us know how you get on. If you have any problems I may have an Audi Codecard here that I could scan for you but rest assured this is their own language and promise.

Hope it helps. Please do leave a vote for the solution. Thanks for using FixYa

I have mitsubishi mirage 2000 my car stereo is antitheft it needs a code to go back on i bought used and cant get contact from the person i end up buying it from can you help me.


I recently changed the battery in my car, and now my radio display indicates 'CODE' or 'OFF' and the radio is not working. What do I need to do?

As part of the radio's anti-theft system on some older model year vehicles (2002 and older), the radio resets itself whenever it loses power from the vehicle's battery. Radio security codes are associated with each individual radio unit rather than the vehicle identification number (VIN) (since a vehicle could have the radio replaced). The radio security code must be input in the radio in order for the radio to work.

When you purchased your vehicle, you should have received a card that lists the four digit security code for the radio. If you are unable to locate this card (sometimes owners find it inserted in the Owner's Manual or glove box), the radio will need to be removed so that you can locate the Part Number and Serial Number for your specific radio. The Part Number typically begins with the letters 'MR' and the Serial Number is generally a string of digits and both numbers can be located on the audit unit's chassis.

Please contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer if you need assistance removing the radio. Once the Part Number and the Serial Number are in hand, your Dealer can access the security code for that radio. You may also contact our Customer Relations Call Center at 1-888-MITSU2011 (1-888-648-7820) and one of our agents will be happy to provide you with the security code and steps to reset the radio as long as you have the Part Number and Serial Number for your radio unit. Agents are available Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PT).

Speakers are good, wiring is good, fuzes are good. Cannot get out of PROTECT mode.


If it is a JVC you can disconnect the power supply by battery or unplugging harness for about five minutes... this is not going to fix your problem but it should get your radio to play. How many speakers are attached??? What are the ohms of the speakers?? If you are unsure post what you know (Brand, watts, ext.). If factory let us know what kind of vehical make, model, and year. Most car stereos are only designed to handle 4 speakers 6 to 10 ohms.

If I disconnect the battery to reset the check engine light, will I need to reset the code on my radio? If so, where do I get the code since I bought the car used.


If you have a radio that is "anti-theft", you will need to enter the radio code after a sustained power loss. You can find the radio code in the owners manual. If you don't have the owners manual, you will need to contact a new car dealer with your vehicle information.
