    Iv only had my 03 s4 avant since the weekend and Im having problems with the key fob
    When I lock the car and walk away the bloody key fob suddenly starts transmitting the unlock signal continually so the doors unlock and the windows come down
    I have to keep pressing the open button till the light stops flashing
    Then press and hold close button till all the windows are shut
    THEN run like hell out of range of the car so the bloody windows don’t come down again
    Has any one else encountered this problem?

    Im assuming I need a new key fob so can any one tell me where I can get a new one from without going to Audi them selves and paying fortune?

    Any advice is gratefully received

    Hi you can get a key off e-bay for arround £25 and then get it cut and programed £30 you will need to know your skc code it normally on a plastic tag you get with the keys to your car and also make sure you get the right frequency fob for your car!

    The problem is with the remote not the blade and chip . If you have a rummage around your remote you may find a reason for the sticky unlock button.
    For the time being why not just use the key in the drivers door lock to lock the car rather than a Basil Fawlty impression?

    The key splits leaving the remote separate, the transponder chip remains in the blade part. You can safely work on the remote , like you would if say the remote battery needed changing .
