I remember having issues with an A4 back in the late 90s... when they weren't epoxied in place. Had washed the car at the weekend and dropped my key on the wet tarmac drive. The key literally fell apart. I picked up the 'three' pieces, two plastic sides and button battery and put it back together again.

Monday morning came and wife drove car to her work using her key. She went into work and I set about driving to mine, except the car kept dying out after starting. Tried it about a dozen times and then phoned Audi, as the car had got this far. He suggested the key might be faulty and to try another one. Got wife's key and got to work. Called into Audi later on to check key and have it coded again, only to find that the transponder was missing from inside!

I had the opposite issue in my Murple. The monkey who fitted the alarm and remote-start tried getting the transponder out of one key and destroyed it in the process, so then cut up the other key and taped it to the reader coil so the remote-start worked When I removed the remote-start I was left with an intact key with no transponder, and a chopped up key with transponder so I have zero usable complete keys

I feel a call to Craig the locksmith in my future...

For D2 there are 3 different immos. PF has separate box 2 versions white and black box, Tacho will only do earlier box, I think it was the white box . There are some other tools for about 100 , the name escapes me now, that will do later separate box immo.

FL D2 has immo built in instrument cluster, as far as I know there are no cheap tools available that will do it offline, you are looking at either 1000 tool or need VAG PC or ODIS with online and GEKO access. You can buy GEKO access on aliexpress for single use or for a day if you have VAG PC or ODIS.

But hopefully Mossy can resolve it with one of the simpler options above.

THank you all very much. I have tried the battery route and no dice. So have ordered a replacement part from eBay as suggested. Will keep you updated.

Does the blade open the door and start the car though?
