This is the electronic emmobiliser symbol.The key has a little chip in it that is encoded when starting to verify that it is authentic.See an Audi dealer to have it recoded or order a new one from Germany.Not cheap i'm afraid.

How do I turn my alarm on the saturn vue


If you have a factory installed alarm the original factory key can activate the alarm by pressing the lock button twice(rapidly). The lock symbol is generally a symbol of a "locked" lock.
If there is no buttons on the car key or it is an aftermarket alarm, a key fab (a little alarm remote control with 2-4 buttons the size of a keychain) is needed to activate/deactivate the alarm.

Have just purchased a 2006 Mazda 6 Atenza and noticed that there is a light on the dashboard that is continually blinking - it is a car with a key symbol in it. I refered to the manual but it is in...


This symbol is normally the car electronic immobiliser symbol and should not be lit once the car is started.

If it keeps on flashing and the electronic immobiliser is installed properly, it will prevent your car from being started.

Flashing symbols means immobiliser code is invalid or uncoded.
Hope the information is useful.

I have a warning light on my 2008 pack 5 PRIUS. It is a red light with a key symbol. This is not the yellow one that comes on when you leave your key in the car. Everything seems fine except for this...


That is the light that tells potential thieves the car has an immobilizer. What you describe is normal operation.

Look in the manual for "immobilizer".

On my saab vector ignition key functions


I have a Saab 93 Vector and although my key does not have that function my manual says the following; 'Press once - Turns on exterior and cabin lighting, for 30 sec, or turns off lighting. Deactivates panic alarm. Hold and press for more than 2 sec - Cars with car alarm: panic alarm (activates alarm manually).
There is another section that says the button turns off lights and larm when activated and the car remains locked. The panic alarm can only be activated when the car is stationary and it will be silenced when the car is driven away.

Hope that makes sense. Enjoy your Saab 93 - I know I do every day.

Security lights flashing after battery cable removal-no start


Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.
