The programming on my 2001 audi S4 key does not work and i even took it to a SAAB/VW/AUDI dealership for them to program by hand and their machine (which neither worked). I tried programming the original key several different ways and still nothing worked. The key module itself was accessed by that SAAB/VW/AUDI dealership, so it is not bad. The batteries are brand new. Pleez help idk what to do without my keyless entry

I've read a few pages in on this post. We have an original key but the programming is messed up (won't remote lock/unlock) and it's falling apart. Do you know if it can still be used to program a new non-OEM key using your two key methodology?

Here it is

here is the info for the new imobilizer set up from Ross Tech

Determining IMMO-ID & VIN
[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
Look at the first "Extra" field. The first 17-digit string is the VIN. The second 14-digit string in the Immo-ID.
[Close Controller, Go Back - 06]


---OR---

[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
[Meas. Blocks - 08]
Select Block 081.
[Go!]
The first 17-digit string is the VIN. The second 14-digit string in the Immo-ID..
[Done, Go Back]
[Close Controller, Go Back - 06]





Key Matching
Prerequisites:


All keys are either new or were adapted to this car (IMMO-ID) before.

You can match up to 8 keys.
While adapting each key, make sure to place the other keys away from the ignition lock (reader coil). The passenger seat is an adequate place.
Battery voltage at least 12.5 V.


[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
[Meas. Blocks - 08]
Select Block 022.
[Go!]
The value in field 3 must be 1. If value is not 1, the key is not capable of being adapted to Immobilizer.
You can check each key in this manner.


Select Block 024.
[Go!]
Make sure the shown lock times in field 1, 2 and 3 are 0 (each field represents a time in minutes).


If the lock times are NOT 0:
Do NOT switch off the ignition!
Allow the car to sit for AT LEAST the number of minutes that were indicated by the fields 1-3.
[Done, Go Back]



[Login - 11]
There are 2 possibilities how to enter a PIN, choose the one that applies for you.

4-digit PIN
Enter zero followed by the 4-digit PIN. For example, if your PIN is 1234, enter 01234.
7-digit PIN
[Use 7-digit PIN/SKC]
Enter the 7-digit PIN, Date on which the PIN was generated by the dealer, along with the Workshop Code (WSC) and the Importer number of the dealer that generated the code.
[OK]
VAG-COM will validate the data you have entered and return you to the Login screen, where the Login Code will show as "XXXXX".
[Do it!]



[Adaptation - 10]
Enter 21 in "Channel Number".
[Read]
The "Stored Value" is the number of keys currently matched.
Enter a "new value" corresponding to the total number of keys to be matched, including any existing keys.
The old keys are automatically beeing cleared.
[Save]
[Done, Go Back]
[Close Controller, Go Back - 06]


Repeat the following steps until all keys have been matched:

Switch ignition off and remove key.

Insert next key to ignition and switch ignition on again.

The warning light for the Immobilizer will light up for ~2 seconds, then go out Switch ignition off and remove key.

Note: The above steps after saving the adaptation, should not exceed 60 seconds!

I've just signed up to see if i can pick some ones brain.
I've bought a 95 A4 1.8 n/a with immo problems to use the engine for a buggy project.
I'm trying to find a diagram somewhere so i can eliminate everything from the loom so I can
run the engine with just the ECU and the instrument panel/clocks.
anyone got anything for me?????
Thanks.

Hi 1move

I have been able to reset or reprogram my key if my battery dies in the key very easy, once i put it in the ignition it would work. but recently i had swamped out the car battery and now i have 2 switchblade keys that don't work. I tried 4 different ways, reading this chat form and nothing worked. any suggestions ? also could the issue be because i tried to do it with 2 none programed keys now? *they are the keys that are for this car, always worked. I like to do this without getting any vag hardware or going to the dealer.

Thanks,

Take the key you do not want to program (if it already works) and put it in the ignition. Turn it one click forward.

Close and lock the drivers door with the second key with the window down (you can also do this from the inside of your car).

On the second key (the one in the drivers door) press the 'UNLOCK' button ONCE only, the lights will flash on the car, but the doors will remain locked

With the second key still in the drivers door, unlock then lock the door again.

Pull the key from the slot and also take out the key out of your ignition and than test the remote functions.

Repeat for second key fob / switchblade / key whatever you want to call it !!! Enjoy!! This worked on my 04 a4 1.8t !!

You might end up doing it a few times to get the hang of the procedure so its all a smooth one step type of thing and the comp will learn it! NOTICE if you are too slow / too fast this will not work!!

Somewhat same issue. 2009 A4 keyless entry/lock not working. All else works fine on remote. Took car to Audi Dealership in Toronto - found one door sensor was not working, hence causing all doors to malfunction -

Replace sensor, and reprogram key fob for keyless entry == $400 (taxes incl.)
