Question about 1996 Audi A6

Audi A6 alarm

My 1996 Audi A6 Avant remote stopped working recenty. I replaced the batteries in the key but to no effect. I have taken the car to our local Audi dealer but they cannot identify the fault as the garage now has a new type of computer system which does not talk to the old cars! My alarm continues to go off at random when I unlock the car on occasions and the only way I can stop it is to open the boot lid and drive off with it jammed open.
Do you know of anyone who has the old computer system that can talk to my car computer so that the source of the problem can be isolated?

If the windows open or close if you hold the key in open or close position then the alarms working .You could break open a window no alarm but the car will not start owning to immobilisor .Not all cars have the type of alarm your thinking of ,and dont bother fitting one of these viper things as i get loads of questions on here when they go wrong which is often owing to the cheapo microcircuits used from china .

Sounds like you are having problems with your built-in alarm system. Like most systems in your Audi, you can read the error codes stored in the controllers. It takes a tool normally only a dealer has (VW or Audi) or an adapter like the VAG Com. (Google it)

I also think you can disable the alarm system and just use the key.

Could the lock button on your remote be stuck? Use a different key/remote. (leaving the suspect key at home.) The keys/remotes can be taken apart....
