Does my Audi use a Transponder key?


The following is an alphabetical list of automobiles made by Audi. The make, model and year are listed along with the type of key required for each one. Some model years may overlap and a manufacturer may use both systems in the same year. In cases where they overlap, we suggest you call the dealer or local automotive locksmith with your VIN number to find out which system your particular vehicle uses. Some models of Audis take a dealer FOB. You can usually obtain these FOBs from a reputable automotive locksmith or the dealership.

For more information on Audi’s that utilize high security keys see our Audi high security page.

*Consumer warning*   Programming Audi’s is a risk as there is no sure way to know whether or not “reading” the pin code will work. The dealers cant help the locksmith and the manufacturer dont want to.
