Question about 2004 Audi TT

Key will not turn in door lock

The battery went dead on my 2004 TT & I am not able to manually open the doors with the key. The key goes in the lock but won't turn.

    I guess my question should have been, how do I get into the car to be able to charge or replace the battery? If it is the door module, are they known to go bad even if the door has never been locked or unlocked with the key? The car has 35,000 miles on it & I have never used the key. Is it possible for the lock to just be froze?

I would try to spray penetrating oil into the key hole and work the key in and out a few times. The cylinders don't get used very often so it is probably stuck.

If you have an owners manual look at the menu controls on the car computer. You should have choices for the alarm and doorlocks, how long lights stay on, traction control, chimes, bells,etc.. A kindly Audi dealer will probably help you.

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....

Key problem, I don't have a spare key and the key is not opening the door. The opening button on the key is very dead, please help me


First, the key"fob" has a battery inside. Any parts store should be able to help you replace it. Second, you should be able to insert the key into the door lock to manually unlock door. If car's battery is dead, most doors will let you insert the key and turn as far as it goes, Then operate the door handle and turn the key a bit more to unlock it.

Keep the jumper cables on the car as the alarm goes off, take your ignition key and open & close the drivers door lock. This resets the alarm.

05 tundra, battery went dead with doors locked


The key won't turn in the door lock? Spray some graphite or lubricant into the lock cylinder and work it some. If you have been using the remote all these year and never the key its probably a little rusty.
