    remote keys

    ello
    i've only got one remote flipblade key for my A3 which isn't exactly ideal, i do however have a golf flipblade key.

    What i was thinking is to get a new key blade cut for the golf key and recode it to match the A3.

    Does anyone know if this will work? the A3 is a '98 and the golf key from a '01. I'm not sure that vw and audi keys work on the same frequency? anyone know or know where it has been discussed before?

    thanks for any help
    chris

    You can retrain the car alarm to accept the new remote and even get a new key insert too.

    i know thats the case with recoding audi keys but not so sure with vw keys for the audi. Would be great if it was, would save me about 150 quid too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Someone on the B5 forum asked a similar question, he had a key which wasn't coded to the car. I posted some instructions. The info I provided was for the B5 so I can't guarantee it works the same on your A3

    Here's the post ASN - Keyless Entry
