Audi Keys and Immobilizers
All Audi models, from M plate upwards, have been built with a factory installed immobilizer system. It is coded with a serial number that matches one coded on a microchip embedded in the car key. It’s impossible to start your car without the correct key. Some early Audi models use a separate immobilizer box that “talks” to the car’s electric control unit (ECU). Some of the later models use an immobilizer system that is combined with the ECU and dashboard clocks.
Either way, each car key has a transponder chip with a unique security code that is required to program keys to an Audi car. Audi stopped giving these codes out a few years back and will not supply this information to any locksmith or even the owner of the vehicle. Given that it will take between 7 – 10 days to receive replacement keys from the main dealer, it means that getting duplicate keys or a replacement set of Audi car keys is going to be time consuming and inconvenient – especially if it involves losing the use of the car while you wait. Even when the keys arrive, it will still require a visit to the local dealer to have the keys programmed.
