Radio doesn't work! There is just an error messages of some type; they cycle between, "err 1" thru "err 7". Also sometimes I see a messgae that says "1 code" etc. There is no sound whatsoever. I tried putting in a new fuse in the panel under the steering wheel, no luck!.
Call ur dealer, or any dealer...give them ur VIN number, and get in ur car. turn key to on, turn off radio. hold 1 and 6 (opreset buttons) and att he same time, with ur other hand, turn radio on...this will tell you 2 numbers, i think its U xxxx and L xxxx...give them these 2 numbers (they alternate, one number shows at a time). ur code should be a 5 digit number. dont try and figure out the code, as u only get 6 tries then the radio locks itself for a few hours or so. once u type in the 5 digit code from the dealer, ur radio will pop back on like regular. just did this this morning lol but now my radio doesnt make any sound, even though it appears to be running properly.

The err is short for error.If the cd player accepts a cd and can't read it can cause err to display. The cd also can be scratched or the lens may be dirty or damaged.If you buy a cleaner cd and it doesn't work then its time to replace the radio preferrably an aftermarket because the factory type can cost up to $500 or more.
Is there a CD inside the CD player? You could try pulling the fuse for the radio (look at the fuse box panel for the exact fuse) and leave it out for 10 secs, then turn the car to the on position and leave for 20-30 secs.. turn the car off and put the fuse back in and then turn the car on and if you;re lucky, the radio will reset... This works for Volkswagens and since Audi is the same company, it should work
Have a 2005 Freelander and the battery died. When I re-charged the battery, the CD changer had a CD ERR 1 message. Could not eject or load a CD and the radio worked. I turned off the radio and pulled off the cover on top of the CD changer. I removed the two screws that hold the frame around the CD changer. I turned the CD back on and the CD went through a test on each CD. I know this solution might not work for everyone, but it worked for me
you need to take the neg (-) battery cable off to reset the radio. you can only enter the radio code 3 times incorrectly than it will lock up. i think you can pull the back up fuse from the under hood fuse box for 10 seconds and that will also reset it.
Well I had a 1990 Xj6 with an aftermarket cd-changer in the trunk and it didn't work, so when I took it to an audio specialist he said that it needed to be replaced. But what he did say is that most manufactures use the same connection cables for their products, ex. Sony plugs will work on all Sony cd-changers. I now have a 1994 Jaguar XJ6 and I have the same error code. I know that Jaguar installed Alpine CHM-S620 cd-changers. So in theroy you could go to an audio store and get the same cd-changer and it should have the same plugs so you wont need to rewire anything. I havent done it yet because I just bought the 1994.
