    Entering code into Gamma Stereo

    Hi there,

    Had the battery replaced on my Audi, so the stereo is now coming up with SAFE, I have the code, but don't have the booklet that says how to enter the code. I've tried a few combinations, such as RDS & TP, FM & AM, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Stereo is a GAMMA, for a 97 A4 Avant.

    Any one know how to actually get it so I can enter the code.

    cheers

    It seems that FM&AM pressed and held should get you into the code-entry mode...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    The following is the procedure to re-activate the radio if the display shows "SAFE". It is important that the procedure be followed in the correct order.

    1. Turn on radio. The radio display shows "SAFE".
    2. Press the FM1 and AM buttons simultaneously and hold until "1000" shows on the display. Release the buttons. Do NOT press these buttons again, otherwise the radio will consider "1000" to be the code.
    3. Use Preset buttons 1 ... 4 to enter the four-digit code number from your radio card. Preset button 1 corresponds to the first digit, Preset button 2 corresponds to the second digit, etc. Each press of the button increments the number by 1.
    4. Once the code shown on the display is correct, press the FM1 and AM buttons simultaneously and hold until the word "SAFE" appears in the display, then release the buttons.
    5. The radio should unlock and be usable shortly afterwards.
    6. If an incorrect code is entered, the word "SAFE" appears, first flashing and then continuously. You can repeat the above steps to unlock the radio once more, the number of attempts will be shown in the display. If an incorrect code is entered again, you radio will be locked for about one hour. After one hour - the radio must stay on and the key must remain in the ignition lock - if the display goes out, the you can repeat the above procedure to unlock again. The cycle - two attempts, one hour lock-up - still applies.

    Cheers for the reply. I did try this, but it also didn't work.
    I have managed to resolve it, after ringing round 3 Audi dealers, finally found one who suggested a few things.
    Was DX & FM in the end for about 5 secs

    Cheers
