Re: <90Q20V> Radio "SAF" display

     The problem arises from the fact that your wife has what they call a
soft coded radio in her car, that is a code that was entered by the original
owner. Your V8 has what they call a HARD CODED radio, in that the code comes
with the radio, and when needed, can be aquired thru your local Audi dealer
thru supplying the radio serial #, and VIN # from the vehicle.
     Probably just as well to pull her radio, and purchase a like kind
exchange unit for approx. $ 74.00-$110.00, depending on what radio it is.
