Audi a6: I've exceeded the number of attempts by which I can

Customer Question

I've exceeded the number of attempts by which I can use the code to unlock my radio. Is there another means to unlock this?

Hello. A radio service center will not help. You need the dealer scan tool to electronically unlock the radio. It may not be the answer you want to hear but it is the correct answer. It's possible you had the wrong code and that is why it is locked out. The dealer is the place to go. They will hook up the vag-com and extract and unlock the radio for you and provide you with the code for future if needed. Hope this helps. It is a very common thing for the codes to be wrong , if the radio was ever replaced the codes may not match per vin and the vag-com is the only savior. Let me know if you have any more questions.
