If you dont have this information in the owners manual, need to take off the radio to know this serial number; other posibilitie, is one visit at dealer with the VIN number and ask if they could gave you this info.

Good luck.

Can I reset the computer of my Audi A4 cabriolet B6 model,if yes ,what is the procedure.


Which computer (module) are you referring to?
Generally: disconnect the battery for 20 min. This often helps to reset the modules (computers).

Note: if not done, you should look for the radio code. Originally part of the paperwork that came with the car (often a rip out card in the operator manual). Some write it down in the manual. If the radio is without power for a long time, it may be required to enter the code again. If code is not available, the dealer can look it up by VIN number and serial number of the radio (need to remove radio typically to get the serial number).

Without the AUZ number (the serial number for the radio) Audi North America was not able to help me. I have the vin for the car and several numbers on the radio unit itself, just no AUZ number. Please help...


In order to get the serial number from the radio you must remove it from the dash board. It will be a 14 digit number that starts with AUZ and it will be on the radio chssis tag. Take that number and the title or registration in your name to a dealership and make sure you have photo id and they should be able to get you the unlock code.

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 reset the radio in an Audi tt 2004? The indicator light says "SAFE"


Hi

The radio is in safe mode and requires the security code to reactivate it. First check through your service documentation for a credit card sized card that Audi print the code on.

If this is missing the only other way to retrieve the code is

1) Remove the stereo from the dash and retrieve the serial number stamped on the back of the stereo.

2) Contact your Audi dealer with both the serial number and the chassis (VIN no) of your car. You will find the VIN no on your registration document.

3) If you do it this way and have retrieved both of these numbers yourself your Audi dealer will run the numbers and give you the code free of charge.

Hint: Some dealers will attempt to charge for this service but they are not authorized to so. On the original safe code card from Audi it specifically states that if you lose the code your Audi dealer will supply this free of charge. Please ensure to quote this information to the dealer if they attempt to make any service charge.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer and thanks for using FixYa.

Radio code audi navigation


The only way to get this code is to either have it in the owners manual or go to the dealer.  The dealer has to get online using the factory scan tool and put in the VIN and radio serial number to generate a radio code via the Audi Server.

I just posted a solution for this problem. It comes straight from the radio manual. The dealer should have told you this. If you want him to do it he'll charge money for his time. IF YOU LOST YOUR CODE. THE DEALER CAN HELP YOU OR IF YOU HAVE YOUR 4 DIGIT CODE: dd43c71.jpg
