Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
you should be able to press the shifter knob button in order to release the ignition key lock. Make sure the shifter is in park, of course, as that will keep it locked. In an emergency there should be a small hole next to the ignition receiver that allows you to stick a wire in to release the key.
The hole is there but does not release key. There also is a tab that i am not sure of its function but appears to be related to ignition system
How far does the wire have do go is for it to disengage a key.
Can I jump the car enough from front somewhere to get key out to open truck.According to the dealer there is a location under to hood in following years
Nothing shared so far that I have not died myself (no offense), need extra wisdom (worth tip)).
There is a jump point in the engine bay, it is on the drivers' side at the rear of the engine bay, behind a plastic cover on the firewall. There is a large ground peg right in front of the cover (which is kind of ridiculous, because you can attach the negative cable to any metal part of the body or engine)
that did not seem to work correctly for 2004 Audi A8.
put all points bulletin out for my other key and finally found it.
thanks for help but you missed the make on this one.
had i stopped with your recommendation and got professional help as required it might have cost me close to 1K.
maybe better luck next time and thanks for the effort....
