    Remote problem

    I changed the battery on my remote last week but since I did that the buttons wont work and I have to manually lock and unlock the car.

    I have access to Vag Com - can I use this to reprogramme the key fob? Or will I need to take it to Audi?

    Thanks

    Might be a silly question but have you tried another battery? Maybe the new battery you've put in your key is faulty/dead.

    Probably worth ruling that out first of all.

    If you have access to a genuine vcds, give ross-tech a shout who will advise the process, no need to goto audi at all.

    TBH doing a search online will advise how this is done, its noted in a few forums.

    razza - tried all that and spoke to people from vagcom today but still no luck. next step is to test whether the remotes are working or not!
