    Audi A3 remote central locking problem

    I have an Audi A3 1998 1.6 petrol.

    Opening the car with the key is fine, but some time now the remote locking has completely stopped working. I've replaced the batteries in the key(s) and also had the car checked out at a garage. They could not program the key despite it being a simple job. They said it might be to do with some receiver in the boot of the car.

    Do you have any idea what fault is likely to be causing this?
    Also what the part is and how much it will cost to fix?

    I am in the stoke area.

    Hi Rommal

    there is a tendancy for the pumps to stop working,
    price of the pump unit is around 325.00 inc vat

    but would only know if it was this via diagnostics

    Thanks Dave

    How much would it cost for this to be diagnosed?

    Also, why is the pump an issue why the car unlocks properly when the key is used (it unlocks not just the door it is used on, but as if the remote were used)?

    Do they have separate processes: with one for remote locking and, another for when the key is used?

    I know it's a simple question but I just want to understand why one can stop working and the other still remain functional.

    hi

    you would be looking at around 65.00 + vat for diagnostic work.
    the pump actually is also the reciever for the central locking unit, it is all housed as one unit in the boot.
