Default Lost every single key including the valet HELP!!!

Hey guys,

Just got back from the dealer and picked up my new key but since I don't even have the valet key can someone PLEASE tell me if I can program the immobilizer chip to sync with my 2001.5-2002 A4 (built in Sept 2001) using VAG COM. I have the real VCDS cable from Ross Tech and not the cheapie Ebay cable. I know that it can't be done on the B7's and it definitely needs to go to the dealer but Can someone confirm that it CAN be done with the B6 and if possible direct me to the site(s) that tell me how to do it.


Cheers and thanks

P.S. I'm not looking for instructions on how to get the doors to unlock using the FOB.... I'll tackle that later. What I really need RIGHT NOW is to get the car started and get it home.

Nice to see that this forum is so dead. I don't even know why I even bother posting here sometimes. Anyways, thought you all might find this interesting.

Hey everyone,

Just a heads up.. If you need a new key cut with the fob, DO NOT GO TO THE DEALER!!!! They will charge you the price of the key PLUS the cost to program it. All in all about 250+

Call these guys first!!!

City Locksmith - Products - Automotive

If they have your key in stock they will cut it and program it for a fraction of the cost. The dealership may be cost effective for a few things but DEFINITELY not when it comes to keys!!!!

We also have a brand new Hyundai Santa Fe with the Key and fob combined.The fob has a proximity transponder as the car is push-start. When I called my Hyundai Dealership (Bank Street Hyundai) they wanted 700 bucks to replace the key and fob and program it. I then did some shopping around and found these guys.

The cost is 189 for FOB AND key, and the locksmith I used for the Audi said they'd program it for 55 bucks.

Moral of the story, DON'T LOSE YOUR KEYS and if you do, DON'T GO TO THE DEALERSHIP.

In the end I found my keys a week and 352 bucks later but I now have a brand new Audi key and a new life lesson.

Cheers
