2003 audi a6 quattro: a keyless remote fob..chip..remote key..locks

This answer was rated:

How do I program a keyless remote fob for this 2003 audi a6 quattro? I have a key with chip that works, the remote key also works - both work as in operating locks and starting the car. I want to program the keyless remote so the buttons functions. The battery in the remote is 3.0v and works - replaced it.

chrisEvw :

hello and thank you for contacting just answers.

chrisEvw :

If you are only trying to code a new remote here is the procedure. If the ignition key portion needs to be coded then you have to have a dealer or locksmith do it.

chrisEvw :

1. Switch Ignition ON and leave the key in the ignition.


2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using


the Drivers door with a second key.


3. Using the remote control press the Unlock


button once, and the horn will sound once.


4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the


coding procedure.(The remote control will now be programmed).


* If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice on the


second remote with one second interval between each press.


* If programming 3 remotes press the unlock button three times


on the third remote...etc..etc..


5. Switch Ignition OFF.


6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.


7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional


remotes.


8. The ignition must be switched OFF between programming each


remote.

it is better to use a scan tool to clear all the previous attempts stored in memory in the system. and start over again .

 

Try this one :

 

 

1. Switch Ignition ON and leave the key in the ignition.

2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the Drivers door using a second
key.

3. Using the remote control press the Unlock button once, and the horn
will sound once.

4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the coding
procedure. The remote control will now be programmed.

NOTE : When performing programming on additional remotes the procedure
is the same, except you press the unlock button 2, 3 or 4 times for the
different remote.

For example : If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice with
a 1 second interval between each press, repeat for 3 and 4 remotes.

5. Switch Ignition OFF.

6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.

7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remotes.
