The immobiliser is probably the fault here as it is not recognising the new key.

SOURCE: Program a remote key for 03 A6

I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.

Have you checked to see if there is spark at the plugs? If not, simply take out 1 plug (can be any one of them), connect the plug wire to it and just let the threads of the plug rest anywhere on the engine block. Have someone turn the motor over while you are looking at the gap on the spark plug. If your distributor is sending sufficient power, you should see a nice healthy spark! If no spark, then your problem is either bad coil, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor, or ignition. But first things first, check to see if you are getting spark.

Missing original ignition keys, of year released 8/97, 2.8L A6 QUATTRO Tiptronic auto trans Number W4255230425 and VIN.num.WAUBA34b6WN116458. I THINK EVERY REQUIREMENT TO BUY CAR, AND HOW MUCH?


You can only get ignition keys from a dealer as the key is part of the alarm system and immobilizer.

I would be very wary of buying any car that does not have keys with it. There should be two sets of keys and a valet key as well. It may be stolen or a repossession.

We purchased a 95 Audi A6 Quattro from a friend. It won't start. Everything come on...Lights, radio, windows roll down. We do not have the master key. We have taken the alternator off and are in t


It absolutely could be the immobilizer (security system). Have you ever had the master key? All the keys should work but if one becomes deprogrammed it needs to be reset (unfortunately by the dealer).
But, before you do that...
Have you checked the voltage level of your battery? It could very well be that your battery has enough juice to power all the accessories but not enough to crank the engine. Try jump starting the car or replacing the battery and see if it starts. Let us know if that works.

I have an audi a6 2002 & need to program remote. replaced battery and doesnt work. read other ways to program, but i only have one key... thanks


hi 8,
so you want to do it yourself... if to program car key of 2002 audi a6,
i think SBB key programmer is ok, it's a handheld car key programmer, and not very difficult to use.
and VVDI 8.6 is also a good tool for you, it's a multi-function tool specially for audi vw cars, but it's a little expensive, so...it's up to you

good luck and greetings

Car stolen, without key how far will audi a6 get without them before turning off


Your car was towed. You cant start the engine without having a matching key since it uses a chip that is paired to your car.

I have a 96 audi a6 and the key is now stuck in the ignition. Car starts and runs but the key will not come out. Just happened out of the blue...


I would try WD-40, spraying down beside the key with a spray nozzle on the end before I took it to a repair shop or pulled the steering wheel.

Starter is turnig but not firing


Starter switch. Plastic and cheap, my 98 A6 did the same thing... I replaced thousands in parts, turned out to be a cracked ignition switch which is a very common Audi problem!
