    My battery ran flat the other day and my stereo now wants the code in., i have the code but dont have stereo book in my audi stuff. How do i get to type in the code? Do i have to press and hold certain buttons? I have the older style bose system. my s3 is a 1999.

    cheers in advance

    audi concert sound system

    switch on the radio the word SAFE will appear
    press SCAN and RDS buttons at the same time, untill 1000 appears on display.
    use station no buttons to enter code, use button 1 for first digit,button 2 for second digit,and so on
    then press SCAN and RDS together as before
    the word SAFE should appear
    release both buttons, a radio frequency should appear after a short delay
    should now work ok
    if u don't get the code right in a couple of tries SAFE will flash,try about 1hr later needs time to reset

    The process is different depending on model of Concert
    Concert tape deck you hold RDS and FM2
    Concert II you hold RDS and Scan, although Concert II is a CANBUS HU so shouldn't ask for the code unless it has been installed in a different car.
    If the process doesn't bring up the "1000" then try holding the buttons in with the ignition on

    Have you tried TP and RDS? I seem to remember this was the button combo on my old Concert. You have to push them quite hard and for only about 3-5 secs
