Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I was not happy with the answer it was the right answer YES. What I ended up doing is the 6 disc changer was broken so I took the new one I had bought and removed the CD changer out of it and exchanged it with the one in the original since that is all that was broken. It worked great and resolved the locked issue since it was the same factory deck just a different changer. The only reason I was not happy is I never like the spend more money answer I read on the internet that you could hold down some buttons and it would read a three digit # XXXXX am/fm and it would give you another three digit # XXXXX you called and they would give you the factory code. The answer I was anticipating was more of how to take care of it that way. NOT take ti to a dealer and spend money and the fact that you would want me to give you money for that is crazy i do appreciate your help and have done the same for others on Audi products sort of a PAY IT FORWARD. I thank you for your help and will give my advice to others in the future but if i do not help them accomplish anything that saved them money I would not expect them to pay me.
Thank you

What is crazy is you do not want to accept the "right" answer.
I am the messenger, not the manufaturer.
There is NO customer coding of Delco Units for this vehicle thru 2009.
You considered asking me for the answer & blame me for the truth.

Don't know what to tell you, except the truth hurts & it isn't my fault
