Does My Audi Car Key Have A Transponder Chip?
If your Audi was manufactured after 1995, then it will have a small microchip known as a transponder hidden under the plastic of your Audi car key. This is made of clear plastic glass and in order for it to switch your car on, it must be programmed correctly, using expert dealer-standard programming equipment. These transponder chips can be found in all modern Audi models – even those without the remote central locking feature. This is to ensure security of the vehicle, as the transponder chip is only registered to a single vehicle.
The ECU in your vehicle will search for a transponder chip when the key is inserted into the ignition and turned. If the right key is placed within the car, then your Audi will turn on. If however, the immobiliser system with the ECU fails to detect a chip, the fuel supply for your Audi will be cut off, so it cannot be driven. This helps to keep your car safe and secure, as this system cannot be overridden, and is protected by uncrackable coding. In some cases, this chip technology can even work when the Audi car key is in proximity of the car, even if it’s in the owner’s pocket.

What Does An Audi Remote Key Replacement Procedure Comprise Of?
There are a number of steps that need to be followed when it comes to the replacement procedure for your Audi car keys.
- Firstly, the door lock or the ignition switch will have to be decoded in order to obtain the key code required to cut a mechanical key.
- Using the key code which is extracted through lock decoding, a new car key is cut that will lock and unlock the car, as well as switch on ignition.
- Then, the immobiliser function is programmed and the key transponder is paired with the car. This will allow the engine to start.
- After this, the remote is programmed to vehicle so you can benefit from the convenient function to lock and unlock the car by pressing the button on the remote key.
Warning: If the transponder chip is programmed incorrectly, while the key will unlock the doors and turn in the ignition, the Engine Control Unit (ECU) will not allow the vehicle to start.
Warning: Second hand or recycled chips and keys purchased via eBay or the internet will not start an Audi vehicle unless these have been diagnostically paired using the dealer-standard equipment. You are advised to only attempt to replace your own car key if you are experienced with Audi diagnostic tools.
