Hoping someone can help me here... My grandad has an A2 and hes started having some problems locking and unlocking the car. The fob hardly worked so he locked and un-locked it using the key. This would then set the alarm off and would take an age to get it to shut up.
The first thing I asked him when he told me this was if his fob battery was flat. After we changed it, the car locks/unlocks normally using the fob but the alarm will not set (no flashing indicators when locking or red flashing light on door). When you unlock it, the indicators flash up as normal.
Now if the battery in the fob got changed, do you have to re-set it to the car or is there another reason why the alarm wont set?
Also I think it might be worth running his car on VAGCOM so if anyone has one around the Dunstable/Luton area that would be willing to help out, I would greatly appreciate it.
