    Thankyou very much, i had a button on the others cars that I have had but haven't seen it on the Audi, now I know, if it wasn't pitch black id go and have a look. I take it the button is on the pillar between the doors ?

    Two buttons in the driver's door pocket. One disables the motion detector, the other disables the anti-jacking sensor for when the car needs to be towed. As Mikeb says, it's all in the owner's manual.

    Thanks for that I'll have a look in the morning.

    With reference to the owners manual, I am sure it is but this forum would be pretty boring and dead if no one asked questions, and whats more interacting with other Audi owners on a cold rainy night is actually quite nice.

    For everyone that has taken the time answer thanks very much for your help I'll have a look in the morning

    I THINK there's an easier way - lock the car using the key in the drivers door but don't turn the key all the way round to the deadlock position (which also sets the alarm).

    Might be wrong - but it's worth a try...

    I have the switches in the door pocket, thankyou, and it appears that when you switch the alarm system off using the switches they turn red indicating that they are indeed off
