Open the hood and find little red plastic cap. This is battery connection (since battery is hidden under one of the seat inside the car). Connect battery charger for 12 hours or try with jump cables.

Hi, When jump starting this vehicle make sure that the Q7 is connected first, then connect to the jumper vehicle. Connect 1 lead to the positive on the Q7 and the negative to a good solid body part or engine part. This will then ensure that the vehicle will start on the jumper vehicles battery directly without going through the Q7 flat battery causing the electronics to strain.
Hope this helped.

SOURCE: Hello my 2009 Audi q7

Try getting some graphite and putting it in the door lock. If it unlock with the remore it has to be the key mechanism and not the lock mechanism. If you don't have graphite, then use some lithium grease or as a last choice WD-40 and work the lock, gentley back and forth. This should free up the tumblers, JUST DON'T TRY TO FORCE IT.

If that doesn't work then you will need to replace the lock with one that is keyed for your car.

Ok the AUDIS and VWS have micro switches in the door latches and the drivers side may be stuck or shot try unlocking the passenger side with a key. You can also try the driver side with a key. If you can get the doors open them and get your battery disconnected both cables put key in ignition and turn it to the run position the hook your battery back up while the key is still on. That should disable the alarm till you lock the doors again.

Is this an all the time issue or only in certain locations? If only in certain locations you may be getting interference blocking/restricting/reducing the range of your remote. (power lines, electrical equipment etc). You may still have a battery issue in the remote(s) depending on how often the remote was used and its probably the least expensive way to check the system. Second you can have a disconnected/bad antenna. Most newer vehicles have the antenna built into the car I believe the Audi is located inside the C-Pillar of the SUV (not easy to access). It could have become damaged or disconnected. Third and finally possibly the alarm unit itself (very rare) could be a cause. Start with the batteries.

I have very small range for the remote control audi q7

An 09 plate Q7 should still be in warrenty as Audi offer a three year warrenty with a limit of 60,000 miles. If your vehicle is out of warrenty Audi are also known very well for good will providing the vehicle has been serviced at an Audi dealership. Try replacing the battery in the key as this may have an effect
