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

I had this as well, but you just have to wait a second. You can't remove it to quickly, the car takes a second to essentially unlatch the key.

OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

TRY THIS IT MAY OR MAY NOT HELP.PUT KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH TURN IT TO ON POSITION WITH THE ENGINE OFF.LEAVE KEY ON POSITION THE IMMOBILIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FLASHES.IF WARNING LAMP TURNS OFF IN 30 SECONDS TRY CRANKING CAR.SEE IF IT RUNS WITH OUT CUTTING OFF IF SO.THE AUDI DEALERSHIP HAS TO REPROGRAM THE NEW IGNITION KEY. WHILE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH IN THE ON POSITION AND THE WARNING LAMP DONT STOP BLINKING THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO REPROGRAM KEY TO THE IGNITION SWITCH AND IMMOBILIZER.
