    Question Key Fob

    Hi All,

    When i bought my A4 a month ago i was only given one key for the car and i would like to have a spare. From what i understand the dealers charge around 150.00 to supply and program a new key.

    What i wanted to know was can you get away with buying these key fobs off ebay and then having the blanks cut for you car. Also can you programme the fobs yourself or is this a main dealer thing only?

    Thanks

    Pal

    As I understand it you would need a code to program the keyfob yourself and as you have only received one key I doubt you'll have that.

    But a good locksmith can obtain the code (which you cnt get using Vagcom) ad program the fob. Not sure whatthat would set you back though.

    The one thing to watch out for if you buy a blank key from fleabay is thatyou do get the correct part no. so the frequency matches up. This should be inside your existing fob if you open it up.
