No because audi has to reprogramm these keys which are specially designed for your specific car and also this is for security purposes too.

I Have an Audi A4 1.9 tdi


Sounds to be a security problem. Check or replace the battery in the key first. After that. It has to go on a scanner. You might want to get it to an Audi dealer for this. I have several scanners that tell me codes, but I can't do the Audi security.

Lost all keys to 2001 Toyota Avalon. Dealer says I must buy a new computer in order to have new keys set for this vehicle. Is there any other cheaper solution?


the best thing i can suggest is find a locksmith who specializes in making car keys. something similar happened to my brother and my friend. my friend lost his keys, to an older acura, the locksmith, he got a code off of the glove compartment, and cut the key based on that code. my brother, has a 2001 audi a4(similar key system), he broke his key, he went to the dealer and they were charging him 400 dollars for a new key. so he got an uncut key from ebay for 15 dollars, took it to the same locksmith, cut the key based on the broken one, and only charged him 20 dollars. 35 compared to 400, huge difference. i know its different situations but i think a good locksmith will be able to make the key for you without charging you all that extra stuff. if you live in the cerritos, california area, i can tell you the exact location of the lock smith. if not, i will gladly help you in your search for one, or any other assitance you may need. i put a link to an ebay key that should be for your car, uncut of course. i hope this helps, and goodluck.

2000 Jeep GC security key problem


You need to replace the SKIM module and have it programmed. It needs to be programmed to the PCM with the VIN and the keys all have to be programmed to the module. I don't think aftermarket scanners are capable of all that is involved so you may have to go to the dealer to get it done. I hope this helps.

The battery of my 06 audi A8L went dead and i can't remove the key left in the ignition..i can't open the trunk lid to access the battery..i lost my spare key


This is bad day indeed! I know right now it looks bleak, but look at the knowledge you have learned!

I suggest calling a locksmith to come out, and open the car. Then call your road service, and tell them you need a battery. IF, they offer to charge it, the battery cables Must be removed, or it can damage the computer!

Remote not working after disconnecting battery


If car Convenience Control Module(module that control key remote) lose power- remote adaptation to the car will be lost. This apply to some Audi models.
What you can try to do is:
1. Disarm alarm manually by opening door lock with the key
2. Put key into ignition and turn to on position (don't start the car)
3. Press few times remote button (with the ignition in on position)
Depends on your year model it my work (works on the newer models), if not you have to go to the dealership to program your keys.
Good luck!
