I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. This website reliable-store.com is very good for this.
?Try it.

Number one trick is to always maintain power when you swap an old battery for a new one. You just need a couple of lengths of wire or a set of jump leads.

The system is not a learning one. You need the dealer to connect it up to a computer and reprogram the Body Control Module.

You can try one thing first though. Disconnect the battery for at least 2 hours. Touch the two leads together for 5 minutes to ensure full dissipation of power. Put the key in the ignition, but not switched on. Connect the negative lead. Connect the positive lead in one swift movement. Leave the system for 15 minutes to reset.

Whilst the battery is disconnected, you can pull each fuse and visually inspect them for breaks.

I would stay away from any car no matter the manufacturer with this many miles on it, it may run great but many other parts like the front end and steering are at the end of there life span, trust me on this. If i was to choose a car to buy with high miles like this I would buy a Honda or Toyota. This car is EXTRMELY EXPENSIVE TO HAVE REPAIRED!

You need to replace the SmartKey to the car.
The keyfob has been damaged internally by water, or shock.
This is a dealership only option, as the key requires to be sync'd with your vehicle with a special computer only available to the dealers.
There is no end-user repair for this.
Either keep using the way it is, or replace the KeyFob.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Advanced key access and authorisation system Drivers of the new A8 now only need to reach for their car key from time to time: "advanced key" is the name of an optional system that acts as an electronic access and authorisation system. The key - which can remain in the driver's pocket - incorporates an electronic pulse generator whose signal is registered and checked by a proximity sensor in the door. If the signal is accepted, the doors are unlocked as soon as the driver operates the button on the door handle. The central locking can be activated and deactivated at any door of the vehicle. All the driver has to do is carry the key on his or her person within a range of about 1.5 metres from the car and to actuate the door handle. The passenger can also be the first to open the door. It is possible to select via MMI whether the central locking should only release the manually actuated doors or unlock all of them. The advanced key system also means that the steering is released and the ignition turned on electronically and wirelessly before the start of a journey. Provided the driver has the key on his or her person while inside the car, the steering is released by pressing the starter button. At the same time the ignition is activated and the electronic immobiliser released. Then the engine can be started at the starter switch on the centre console. For safety reasons, the selector lever must be in the position "P" or "N" and the driver must actuate the foot brake. The engine can of course also be started in the conventional way by turning the key in the ignition lock. When leaving a vehicle equipped with advanced key, it merely suffices to press a small button on the outside handle on the driver's door in order to lock all doors. Once again there is a dialogue between the key and the in-vehicle sensor: it is therefore impossible to lock the doors accidentally. This system is not only convenient, it also benefits security. The mechanical ignition lock previously used has been replaced by an electronic version. The key identification process with advanced key is fully electronic and consequently enables they key to be clearly assigned to the right vehicle.
