AUDI KEYS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

It doesn’t matter which Audi model you own, you can rest assured that the key services from Car Keys Solutions will always meet your needs.

Those services include car key repair, car key replacement or creation and programming of a spare key, and if you need a whole new replacement set of Audi keys, you can have one in practically no time at all within the M25 and Home Counties area.

So whether your Audi keys have gone missing, or you need the transponder chip in your key re-programmed, there’s no need for concern because we’ve got the solution for you.

Replacing or even just duplicating an Audi key isn’t a simple matter – it takes a sequence of several complex processes until our expert technician, using state-of-the-art technology either at our premises or on the road, can hand you over a new key.

Our technicians can be with you at a time and place you specify, whether it’s in a few days in the future at home, or within an hour if your stuck by the roadside.

Our commitment is to provide a high-quality service that’s also highly cost-effective.

We cover most Audi models – see the list below, but if you can’t find your Audi there, just give us a call because we might not have included it yet.

DOES MY AUDI KEY HAVE A TRANSPONDER CHIP?

Audi models manufactured before 1995 most likely won’t have a transponder chip, which became a standard key component from that year onward. 

The chip itself needs to be correctly programmed to communicate properly with an Audi, using sophisticated equipment so it can only interact with the vehicle it’s paired with. Not only will it then control the central locking function if the car has that feature, but it will also synchronise with the engine control unit (ECU) and confirm to the car that the key being used to start it is genuine. 

But if, for whatever reason, the chip doesn’t synchronise with the Audi’s ECU or its immobiliser system, it will cut off the fuel supply and prevent the car from being driven.

It’s a system that plays a major part in keeping your Audi safe and secure, since it’s impossible to override – and it’s completely hackproof.

OUR AUDI KEY SERVICES

CAR OPENING

Locked out of your car … while your keys are locked inside it? It may not be much in the way of consolation, but it’s not just you it happens to – it happens to a lot of Audi owners. This means we have a lot of experience unlocking Audi doors, so we can do that for you too, in a very short time and without leaving any kind of trace.

CAR KEY PROGRAMMING

It can (and does) happen that your Audi key fob suddenly gets out of synch with your car, requiring specialist diagnostic equipment to get it back in synch again.

No need to panic – it takes just one call to 020 3733 1056 for our mobile team to be with you within an hour. They’ll bring along the right specialist equipment to get your fob and your car talking to each other again, and get you back on your way once more.

CAR KEY REPAIR

No matter how well you look after your car key, over the years it’s going to get worn, chipped, cracked or even snap, eventually leaving you without access to your Audi.

We can restore your key back to full functionality, either by the roadside or at our Finchley premises – while you wait.

CAR KEY DUPLICATION

It’s so easy and so cost-effective to have an existing car key duplicated – and such a lifesaver if you happen to lose the original.

DOOR LOCK / IGNITION BARREL REPAIR

If you’ve got problems with your door lock or your ignition barrel, there’s always the option of taking your car to a dealership – if you don’t mind the delay, expense and general inconvenience.

 

A better alternative would be to call us, and our technician will be with you within an hour with a fast, cost-effective solution.

HOW TO REPLACE AN AUDI REMOTE KEY

Creating a replacement Audi key involves several steps before you can put that new key into the ignition and drive away.

  • First, we need to decode the door lock or ignition switch
  • Once we have the code, then we can correctly cut a mechanical key to open the car locks and switch on the ignition
  • Then we have to program the immobiliser function and pair the transponder in the new key with the vehicle, so the engine starts
  • And finally, we program the remote so all its controls function properly

We have to take great care when we program the transponder chip, because although the new key will unlock the car doors and turn in the ignition barrel, unless the chip is programmed correctly the ECU will cut off the fuel supply, preventing the car from starting.

A word of advice: Don’t even think of going online and buying a replacement key or chip – they won’t work with any other Audi than the one they’ve been originally created and programmed for, so you’ll just be wasting your money. Best, then, to give us a call instead.

SO … HOW CAN WE HELP?

Our expert technicians are always on hand to help you with any Audi key problems. Just call us to make an appointment at a time and place that’s convenient for you (or if it’s an emergency someone will be with you within an hour).

It’s our business to unlock vehicles, extract the code we need to create new keys and program new transponder chips and remote fobs.

Our technicians carry out that work to the highest of standards, and when it comes to quality, there’s no compromise – even though our services cost so much less (and are so much faster) than if you’d gone to a main dealership. 

And, of course, there’s no need to fork out for towing fees either since we come to you. Then again you could always drop into our East Finchley shop at 142-144 East End Road, London, N2 0RZ.
