    Odd problem with 1 key

    So one of my keys is giving me problems. When i use the spare key i am getting intermittent messages about the engine being immobilized and to consult the owners manual. So i thought, ok 10 year old battery, i'll change both keys battery. put new Energized batteries in both fobs along with dieelectric grease for good contact.
    My main key is still operating 100% but the spare is still giving me that message about the engine being immobilized please consult owners manual.
    Anyone struck this problem before?

    No nothing in the manual about it Audi. I'll have a read through those threads, failing figuring it out via the net i'll have to go into the steelership.

    I had the same problem and had a new key cut, the dealer will charge a small fortrune.

    So in your case was it the actual key shaft that goes into the barrel?

    It's probably not programmed correctly. They can re-use the same blade but you'll likely need a new fob and programming costs.
    It would only be an issue with the blade if it didn't turn in the barrel or door lock. Since it's saying it's an immobilizer issue, I would say it's the fob.

    It's an intermittent problem. Works "most" of the time.
