Hi i gather you have done the rest the key by..pressing one of the buttons, then manually locking and unlocking within 30 seconds, then leaving it 1 minuet to set?, if you have then unfortunately your local garage is correct, you will only be able to get it re-programed from a main dealer...

I have a 2001 audi a4 cant program the remote i tried the 2 key thing the lihgt will flash once like there spose too but nothing after that


1. Put a key in the ignition and turn key to On position (not running)
2. Get out of the car, but the unpaired fob in the drivers door and turn it to the lock position, then while holding it there, press the lock or unlock button on the new remote.

If this doesn't work, change the battery's in your key fob,

if that doesn't work, check your fuses , number 14, and 38

Make sure the batteries are oriented in the remote correctly..Also check the voltage on them with a meter, sometimes they are low right out of the package.

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.

Central locking system stopped working


If the A6 layout for the modules is the same as my A4, the lock pump is in the rear corner of the car, on the passenger side. In the trunk, pull up the carpeting behind the passenger rear wheel, and tucked down in there is the pump assembly. They're known to go bad and it's a pretty likely cause for your problem, provided your fuses are not blown.
