Immobilizer not recognizing key. vehicle will start and cut out immediately. try unplugging instrument cluster and recconecting as they sometimes develope a bad connection due to connector pins being very fine. check connection between ignition barrel and dash cluster. immobilizer built into cluster. if engine control unit has been changed immobilizer won't recognise it, must be adapted using diagnostic reader. this is done by entering instruments [code 17] select adaption [code 10] and channel 00 [erase learned values] and confirm. keys may need to be adapted to immobilizer [only at dealer as key code is needed.

463a engine control unit disabled Audi a4 1.9 td


463A definitely not VAG codes they are from one of the cheap code readers.
Audi A4 Quattro - fault code 463a: engine control unit disabled.
This could be a dirty sensor or bad connection somewhere.
The immobilizer light flashes when you insert the key?
Imobiliser pick up loop in the steering column sounds dodgy, take the cowling off & check its connected ok. Just clipped it back in.

When i start my car it just cuts off again this happens a few times then works fine, also after a few miles of driving the abs warning light comes on my car is an N reg audi A4 automatic 1.8


Hi, I had the same problem. it is the imoboliser, it reads a code in your key while starting. you need to get the code in the key reprogramed. if that wont work you will need to get a new ignition barrel. Audi dealer will reprogram your key.

2003 audi a4 1.8t ECU/emission control system warning light flash


No I am a mechanic at Audi. The problem is that the the air flow to the central tappets may be causing the air flow sensor to trip and that is why. Try putting a small amount of WD40 into the petrol and that will work, its a very common problem.
