Question about 2001 Audi TT
There are two different programmings being spoken here...
1: is the "safety interlock" it's a security measure. if you go to start the car and a Yellow key flashes... that is the interlock security system. If you don't have a key specifically programmed for that car's VIN, it won't start. This can only be done at the dealership, and yes they charge about a hundred dollars. The price is the same for 1 or 10 keys for the same car. Some earlier audi TT's don't have this feature (including some 2001's). If you want one key reprogrammed to work, you will need to have ll keys reprogrammed. This programming is put into the switchblade's half of the remote. (if you pull the key apart there are 2 pieces, one that holds the metal switchblade key, andone that has all the remote buttons) a key without buttons is commonly called a valet key, which also needs interlock programming to work.
2: The keyfob's remote buttons. Lock/Unlock, Trunk open, and Panic. These need to be programmed by the dealer as well. They charge $50-$100. The price is the same for 1 or 10 keys for the same car. This programming is put into the half of the remote with all the buttons (the keyfob). This is not a necessary feature to operate the vehicle.

I have a Porsche cayenne turbo 2008 which is has developed this annoying problem. I get a warning lamp suggesting to check my front side lights. i checked the front lamp which appear okay and side light come on normally at each turn. sometimes this warning comes as soon i start the car and sometimes after sveral miles of driving. Occasionally this warning does not come up at all. Is this something that can be fixed without going to a dealer which is 200 miles from me and i can only have it seviced on a weekday. Can anybody help?

If the key has no lock/unlock buttons on it then chances are a diagnostic computer will have to be used to programme the key,but if it does have buttons,some cars can be programmed by various combinations of switching the ignition lights on and off and pressing the buttons,you'll just have to mess around to find the combination.bear in mind that an audi specialist (not a dealership) will probably have a computer that will code keys
