-A- Remote control key
The remote control key can be used to lock and unlock the car. Press the release button Fig. 1 -arrow- to make the key spring out of the handle and to fold it back in.
Replacing a key
If you should lose a key, please contact an Audi dealer. Have the remote control coding for that key deactivated. For this purpose you should bring all available keys with you. It is also important to notify your insurance company if a key has been lost.
Number of keys
You can check how many keys are initialised for your vehicle on the instrument cluster display. It is displayed while you are setting the time Link. For example, 1/2 means that of two keys have been initialised for the vehicle and that you are currently using key no. 1. This feature enables used car buyers to make sure they have received all of the keys.
Electronic immobiliser
The immobiliser is designed to prevent unauthorised persons from driving the vehicle.
It may not be possible to start the engine with the key if there is another ignition key from a different make of vehicle on the same key ring.
  • Always take the key with you when leaving the vehicle - even if you only intend to be gone for a short time. This is especially important if children are left in the car. They might otherwise be able to start the engine or use power-operated equipment such as the electric windows - this could lead to injuries.
  • Vehicles with ignition lock: Wait for the vehicle to come to a standstill before removing the ignition key from the lock. Otherwise the steering lock could engage suddenly, causing an accident.
The function of the remote control key may be impaired by interference from other nearby radio signals (for example from a mobile telephone or TV transmitter) if these are in the same frequency range.
