Audi car key programming made easy
More and more car manufacturers, especially the VAG group (Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Seat), are making their cars more secure in an attempt to help cut down car theft but the technology is also making it harder for vehicle locksmiths, who have to keep up with innovation in order to remain useful. The Auto Locksmith has a huge advantage over most other car locksmiths because it continually invests in new technology and computer software. This enables it to keep up with car manufacturer trends in terms of being able to provide a mobile car locksmith service that can solve car key and lock problems for even the most modern of vehicles.
Audi Keys and Immobilisers
All Audi models, from M plate upwards, have been built with a factory installed immobiliser system. It is coded with a serial number that matches one coded on a microchip embedded in the car key. It’s impossible to start your car without the correct key.
Some early Audi models use a separate immobiliser box that “talks” to the car’s electric control unit (ECU). Some of the later models use an immobiliser system that is combined with the ECU and dashboard clocks.
Either way, each car key has a transponder chip with a unique security code that is required to program keys to an Audi car. Audi stopped giving these codes out a few years back and will not supply this information to any locksmith or even the owner of the vehicle.
Given that it will take between 7 – 10 days to receive replacement keys from the main dealer, it means that getting duplicate keys or a replacement set of Audi car keys is going to be time consuming and inconvenient – especially if it involves losing the use of the car while you wait. Even when the keys arrive, it will still require a visit to the local dealer to have the keys programmed.
