Question about Audi A4

1 Answer

I have a 1996 audi a4 and have bought an OEM remote from my dealership. I did the two key thing and holding remote buttons but it did not work. They checked my vin and said it was the right part, but it still doesn't work. All of my keys work fine and the locks all go up and down including the vacuum. What could be wrong with my car/remote/ or what I am doing. And yes, the battery is alive in the remote.

You'll need two keys.
1) Open the driver door, turn the ignition switch to on, but do not start the car.
2) Close and lock the driver door with the other key (this should be the proper key and not just the valet key - if you use the valet key the programming won't work).
3) Hold down both buttons on the fob for about 5 seconds. The lights should flash and the alarm horn should honk.
4) Open the door, remove the key from the ignition. Close and lock the door with the key.

hope this helped if not then I would go to the back to the dealer and have them do it for you.

Audi 96 a4 open and closes on it own


do you use keys or remote to lock it ??
do this anyway.. lock car with key and hold key over for 30secs.the windows may go down, then release and wait 30 secs ,then lock car with remote holding button down for 30 secs,this resets the central locking./alarm system.also check battery is fully charged as this will have an effect on all the above

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

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!
