    Programming Spare Key Problems!!!!

    Hi,

    I have a 2001 Audi A3 1.8SE

    I am having some trouble programming a NEW spare key.

    I can get the doors to lock and unlock, but when you put the key in the ignition it doesnt seem to recognise the immobliser - fires up then cuts out immediately.

    Old key

    4DO.837.231. a 211.01
    433.92 Mhz

    New Key

    4D0.837.231A 14.01
    433.92 Mhz



    Am i using the correct key?

    Can anyone suggest why i can't get this to work or help at all.

    Thanks in advance

    Derek

    i've done this once before on a mk4, if the process is the same then you need a skc code either 4 or 7 digit depends on the age of the car. you then need to program the key into the immobolizer using this code

    If you still have the original white plastic tag with a scratch of panel then the secret key code is under there. VW/Audi used to supply the codes to owners but not any more. Anyways you need to log into the immobiliser via vag-com with this code to programm the new key in.
