What is Radio Unlocking?
Are you looking for a way to get a Audi radio code for your vehicle? We are pleased to say that we are able to help you out. All you need to do is keep reading and we will tell you exactly how you can generate a free Audi radio code. Firstly though, we believe it is best that we explain to you what radio unlocking is. This is before we start the actual process of unlocking your vehicles radio.
The reason for you having the trouble of a locked Audi radio to begin with is because when your radio was manufactured it was designed with an anti-theft security feature in order to discourage thieves. This is the case for all modern automobile radios. The way the security feature works is that if a radio is tampered with or is removed from a vehicle, it will activate. This means that the radio will basically ‘lock’ itself meaning that it will be unusable unless you know the code for it in order to unlock it.
This security feature has been incredibly successful in reducing the amount of thefts and attempted thefts of radios, saving on the amount of money paid out in insurance claims. This is great however, when you encounter the problem of a locked radio and you’re the rightful owner of it, it can prove to be a nightmare if you don’t know the radio code for it. Sometimes a vehicles radio can become locked due to a simple software glitch or even when you have changed your vehicles battery, which is the most common cause.
What do you need to unlock your Audi Radio?
Well as you know, you will need a radio code. This is unique to your radio as it was assigned to it when it was manufactured and is usually between four and six digits long. It is linked to the serial number of your radio which is a unique number used to identify your radio. This therefore means that if you can find out the serial number of your radio, you will be able to unlock it as we can generate a free Audi radio code for you. This is the only thing you need to unlock your radio, so if you can’t find it we’re afraid we will be unable to help you.
How to Unlock a Audi Radio for free
Step 1) You first need to insert either your cars key or the fob into the ignition. Turn it until you hear a click sound if you have a key or press it in without depressing the clutch if you have a fob. This will turn on all of the electronics in the car without starting the engine up as there is no need to do this.
Step 2) Your Audi’s radio will now display a request on screen asking you to submit a valid radio code, this is what you need to do in order to unlock your radio. We will explain in the following sections of this guide how you can go about generating a free Audi radio code.
We would like to say that once you have successfully generated your radio code we highly recommend that you make a note of it. The reason for this is that if you ever need to unlock your radio again you will be able to as the code will still be the same and it saves you coming back to our website to generate your radio code again. We also provide you with the option to save your radio code in a text file to your Mobile/PC once it has been generated.
If you don’t know how to enter the radio code you will be given shortly into your radio, we recommend that you search online for instructions for your year model of Audi radio. This is because all Audi models vary slightly and we are unable to include accurate instructions in this guide. The process is usually very easy and you shouldn’t need any instructions
