Touareg Key-Fob not unlocking the alarm and now car won't start because of it...

I can unlock the door manually, but when I put the key in the ignition, the car won't start and a sign on the dashboard computer comes on saying "immobil activated" or something like that. I get that this is a security feature, but I need to drive my car - how do I start the car with my inability to turn off the alarm due to a faulty keyfob?

SOURCE: alarm immobillizer

The alarm systems on land rovers are quite tempramental. They work on radio frequencies. If you park next to a radio antenna like they have at post/ telecommunications offices. Then the radio waves they send out can interfere with your cars system, making it think it has been attempted to be broken into, and so immobilises. You should have a 4 digit code called the EKA code. You must have this to knock off the immobilser to start the car. The car must be locked completely, all windows shut and then enter the EKA code using your key.
Hope this helps

Do you have a key fob? Unlock the car with that and you should be OK. My sons Elantra is the same way, you can only get in with the fob. I guess the car thinks it's being stolen otherwise. If you don't have a fob, I'm no help

SOURCE: how to tell what audi tt keyfob to what alarm

If you have an owners manual look at the menu controls on the car computer. You should have choices for the alarm and doorlocks, how long lights stay on, traction control, chimes, bells,etc.. A kindly Audi dealer will probably help you.

It's your built in security alarm , have you changed the battery lately ? The procedure to reset it is: Unlock drivers door with key, then use key fob in unlock door mode, put key in ignition switch, foot on brake , transmission in park or neutral and clutch depressed (If applicable )

Anti theft light won't go out


There are 2 things to try:
1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

I started my car on day and the next day I unlocked the door and the alarm started and would not stop. My buddy diconnected the horn and the car won't start...help


i believe if you put key in ignition turn it forward and back off twice it should reset the anti theft to start it. or unlock pass door with key and that might reset it. also try the same with back pass door if the other didnt work. hope this helps.

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.
