I am so embarrassed to admit that I improperly hooked up the
negative/positive posts when jumpstarting my 97 Aud A6 Wagon. The smoke was
my first clue. Anyway quickly yanked the cables and then properly
jumpstarted the car to get a new battery. I noticed the radio wasn't
working after the jumpstart fiasco. I checked the fuses and had a friend
doublecheck with a voltmeter. There's a chance it stopped working when the
battery went totally dead. It should say SAFE on the display and then I can
go through the reset procedure with the unlock code, but it doesn't say
anything. The backlights on all the knobs come on when the lights are on,.
but no sound and nothing comes up on the display.
Any hints, tips, or stabs would be very much appreciated.
