Hello... sorry to hear you have a problem. If you still have the factory stereo in the car, you may be lucky enough that the code is in the book that came with the car. Check the manual and see if someone included a security code card or if the number was written in the booklet maybe in the notes section or in the audio section. If not, then the radio will need to be removed and the serial number from the stereo written down and you will need to contact an Audi dealership, give them the serial number and they should be able to provide you with the code to your radio. They may charge for this service. I have seen people get them for free and some charge. Be sure when you enter the security code that it is entered correctly because you will only have a couple of chances with most stereos before it locks down. I hope this helped and good luck with your venture!

How to get the radio code in order to exit the radio out from "SAFE" mode

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

The sequence of programming for Audi 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.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
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!

How do i take my radio off safe mode? 2000 audi a4


1.- Disconnect the negative battery terminal to prevent an accidental short circuit. But make sure you have the antitheft radio code in case you need it later.
2.- Insert Metra’s 86-9001 (especial key) into the slots in the factory radio and pull the radio from the dash. There are two slots on the top and at the bottom of the radio
3.- Disconnect the wiring.

2000 Infiniti radio safe mode


The Infiniti Radios don't have safe mode. I believe this is because they are a royal pain for thieves to remove and will only work with other Double DIN setups.

The radio WILL NOT going into security lock.

Hi there! I have an audi 2000 F/L, the radio wants a code


Radio's that have a "safe mode" go into that mode when power has been removed. The vehicles battery may have been disconnected during service for a period of time for this to happen. This is a theft prevention feature that the radio has so if someone rips it out of your car it wont work again without the code. If you have an aftermarket radio, try to find the manual for the radio maybe the code is in there and instructions on how to unlock it from safe mode. But if it is the Audi stock radio try to find the Audi owners manual.

Good luck
