Re: Audi A4 2003 Alarm Problem
I have an Audi A6 Avant 1.9TDI Limited Edition 53 plate. While doing diagnostic checks I must have hit or changed something. When I finished and locked the car I noticed that my alarm did not activate ie indicators did not flash and there is no red flashing lights by the door locks as before. Can anyone please tell me how to re-enable the alarm. There must be an easy way of doing this without going to an Audi dealer...
There is a few things to do check the door switches that control dome lights, check wire down by the skid plate when you get oil changed there is a sensor for the starter there if it is stolen the alarm will go off or just take a BAT and BEAT the living **** out of your horn and call it good like I am going to. I hope this helped or will help I recommend an aluminum bat vrs. wood

Every car brand and model has its procedure to stop the flashing light and alarm sounding.
But still the common procedure is Make sure boot and bonnet are closed properly.
It can also be a switch, but check your alarm by locking yourself inside the car, and then press the close button on the key 2 times repeatedly until the lock control on the door doesn't make anything. Then open the door by pushing the lever or open the hood . If the horn sounds and the lights blink your alarm is ok , if only the lights blink you should take it to dealer. You can stop the hazard lights and horn sound by pressing the unlock button on the key.
If it did ever work for you, then the problem should be the horn itself, the wiring to the horn, or the sensor/computer that tells the horn to blow.
Otherwise, the whole system may be defective.
God bless your efforts.
I would start by replacing the FOB. Sounds to like the electronics inside it are bad. The only reason the horns would go off is if you hit the panic button. There is a slight chance the receiver is bad. But Fobs are cheaper to replace than the receivers. If you have two FOBs and they both react the same, then replace the receiver. Or just ditch the system. The keys (in the door locks) should still activate the alarm system.
unlock the car with the key and hold the key over for 30 secs,(the windows will go down) then lock the car/hold key over for 30 secs,(the windows will go up). wait 30 secs then press/hold down the unlock button on the key fob,this will resyncronise the alarm/key fobs.
replace batteries in remotes,then with key unlock car/hold key over windows go down,wait 20 secs,then lock/hold key over,windows go up,wait 20secs, then using remote press/hold down the unlock button for 30 secs.you have just reset the alarm/immobiliser.if remotes/keys dont work after this,then take it to a dealer for a computer/key reset.
Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options.. A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm. B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start. C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
