    key fob problems

    hi there, i have a 3 door audi a3 1999 1.8t which i recently bought, it only come with 1 two button key fob. problem is the buttons do nothing, i have replace the battery with a 2032 batt. i have tried most re sync combinations with no luck!! when i unlock the car i have to put the key in the ignition to unlock the boot and passenger door else the hazards flash repetedly. I have plugged vcds in to find faults with the convienience module but when i try to open the contoller it states 'no responce from controller' does this car have one? i have fault code of 01134- Alarm horn (H12) 49-00 -no communications... any help would be appeciated thanx.

    Try ' 35 central locking ' with vag com and clear all faults
    Your sirens knackered for starters as it should sound with the indicators
    Could be it just needs syncing or re coding or it may be the wrong fob

    I knows it's a dumb question, but did you use the correct battery in the fob? I recently changed my battery and found I needed 2x 1620 batteries in my fob. I have a 2001 s3 so maybe things at different

    do you have any way to check the fob is emitting a signal? if you was local i would be able to sync a spare fob to your car unless there is an issue with your modules. Im breaking an a6 if the parts are interchangable?

    Hi @udi a3 may live too far away, i have used vcds to check for a signal in measuring blocks but it reads no signal, so i dont know if its the fob or the receaving unit? Also reading other post somebody tried doing what i did with a working fob but it didnt show no signal either.

    Fob should have a part number inside?
    Pump seems to be behaving properly so fob would be my guess either not coded or completely wrong
    Where about in staffs are you?

    Was this just for a spare key? Instead of buying several fobs thinking they are correct you need to check the part numbers and buy from a reputable seller, preferably new. its going to be a little more expensive, but clearly less troublesome.

    What's the part number of the new key
    If it definitely came from an 8L it should work there all the same

    1999-2002 3 button remote part number is 4d0837231 a or n
    1997-2000 2 button remote part number is 4d0837231r

    there's several other Audi remotes that look the same but have different part number & aren't compatible
