Question about 2000 Audi A6

2 Answers

I have a 2000 Audi a6 4.2. The remote flick key buttons don't at all. I am able to unlock, start and even drive the car but the alarm sounds the second i turn the key in the ignition and not before then. Now the sound of the alarm stops after approx five minutes but the hazards keep flashing for approx another three minutes and the car is fine unless you open another door and then it starts all over again. Like i said i am able to drive the car but i have to put up with car starting ritual even time i get in and out. I have changed the batteries and the remote and charged the car battery........Please help.

SOURCE: Spare master key for 2006 Audi A-6 will open the door but not sta

In some cases, the spare is just a key to get you in the vehicle in case you lock yourself out. The newer model vehicles have a "Chip" in the key and it is "Seen" by the lock. This helps to prevent theft. If you have a key made, you have to go to a dealer to get the info on how to program the new key to get it to start.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

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....

SOURCE: AAA advised me to open and close door with key

Yes. Because the security system was "set". You need the code to unlock the security system for the radio. It is like that for theft pruposes. Best bet is to go to the dealership to have them reset it or figure out how to get the code for your radio.

Try with brand new key fob battery and see.If that helps.
Otherwise May be keyfob needs to be reprogrammed.

KEYFOB PROGRAMMING


Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

Alarm for audi A4


Try disarming the car from the trunk. Sounds like the door lock switch is not deactivating the alarm, which it should, with or without the remote.
