Has your Audi car key has snapped, cracked or has just become too worn to function properly?
Keys snapping in locks and ignitions that cannot turn are all too common. Direct Car Keys can rectify these issues directly at your vehicle.
We can attend your vehicle, open without damage, make a key to operate the locks and ignition. Then we extract the vehicles security pin code. With this code we then use our diagnostic programmer to communicate with the ecu / immobiliser. We can now erase old & lost keys and program in new ones, so that they are the only keys that will start the vehicle.
Audi Car Keys
The Audi immobiliser systems were introduced in 1994. There have been many variations on the original system fitted. Audi vehicles are fitted with 2 types of immobiliser systems.
Consists of a separate immobiliser ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system.
The Immobiliser is integrated within the vehicle dashboard. The Immobiliser ECU enables up to 8 keys to be programmed and is recognised via the transponder aerial mounted around the ignition lock. If the keys are lost or a replacement Engine Management ECU is fitted then the transponder keys will need programming so that the ECU memory recognises the codes.

I’ve broken the chip in my Audi key what do I do?
Most keys contain a glass transponder chip that is concealed inside the top plastic part that attached onto the remote fob. Lots of people try to save cash by purchasing parts from ebay and doing a self refurb job of their keys. In the process the glass transponder chip can smash and break or fall out and get misplaced. We can replace damaged or lost Audi transponder chips and reprogram the key to make the car start.
