Please provide a little more detail.

I'm assuming you are referring to needing a battery for your key.

If this is correct, the key usually has a slot on one side that can be turned with a coin about the size of a quarter. Turning it about a quarter turn will release the cover and you can pick up a new battery.

Be sure to take the old batterey with you wheb you get a replacement. Reverse the procedure when
you install the new battery. As a mater of fact if you take the key to an auto parts store they will probably replace the battery for you.

    I was not speaking specifically about an Audi. I was talking about car keys in general. My wife drives an Infinity and my daughter drives a Nissan Maxima and there keys both have the same method of replacing the battery.

    I'm sorry I cannot address the Audi battery key specifically. Perhaps I might suggest that you call an Audi dealer, ask for the service department and ask them how one goes about replacing the battery.

    Let's try one other thing. Can you describe the key and its holder. Does the holder have any slots or arrows on the case?

    Sincerely Loringh

Sorry to hear about your situation. You need to check you battery connections to make sure that everything is connected correctly. If you have the key, keep experimenting with the battery to see if you get anything out of it. You could also call a repair shop.

Replace battery in key

If you have the diamond shape key, the battery is not replacable. If you have the square shaped key, the battery is replacable, but that is obvious because of the screws on the back of the remote.if you have the diamond shape key, it is recharged when its inserted into the ignition. If the key hasn't failed, taking a long trip 60 min. or longer should recharge the battery. If there is no change in the operation of the key after your long trip, most likely the key has failed and needs replacement.
