Question about 2005 Audi A8
After parking my A8-L (05) for a week at the airport the passive key door lock and unlock feature no longer works- How can it be reset? I left the valet key with the car.
The owners manual mentions that the car will automatically turn off certain features after a couple of days on non use- to conserve battery power- nothing mentions how to turn them back on- or should it happen automatically?
As far as the central locking issue, it sounds like you need to replace your central locking pump. You can buy them online.
I have a 95 A6 and I am in the process of looking for a new central locking pump.
The part number may be 4A0 862 257 J, that is what it is for me.
There are directions online as to how to change this yourself once you get the part. If you buy from the dealership the part is $500.
Be thankful your child locks weren't engaged. We haven't been able to open our back doors since the pump went out.

HI,MARK,THE SIGNAL FROM YOUR KEY IS NOT GETTING TO YOUR IMMOBILIZER.THE PROBLEM IS MORE LIKELY AT THE PLUG ON THE READER COIL ON THE IGNITION.YOU WILL HAVE TO BEND THOSE TERMINALS SLIGHTLY CLOSED AND INSULATE THE WIRES SEPERATELY.THIS FEATURE IS PART OF THE VEHICLES SYSTEM UNFORTUNATELY,ANDY

will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

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....
