FROM 1995 all Audi keys had transponders (‘chips’) embedded in the key head, to enhance security (prevent the vehicle being ‘hot wired’). The type of transponder used by Audi from 1995-1997 is a Megamos type 13 (or T5 chip).
IF YOU HAVE A KEY ALREADY (1995-1997) and simply require as spare: Copying or ‘cloning’ is very straight forward and takes a matter of minutes with our market leading equipment.
IF YOU HAVE LOST ALL KEYS (1995-1997) then firstly a lock will have to be decoded in order to make a mechanical key which turns the locks. Secondly, vehicle specific ‘logic’ has to be wriiten onto a transponder, inserted into the key head and finally this is introduced to the car’s ecu (computer) memory via plugging into the obd (communication) port with a specialised tester / pin code security. The pin is not known by or available to the owner and can only be extracted from the car using specific equipment. Only then will the car be allowed to start.
FROM 1997 Audi enhanced the security by using crypto chips with rolling code’s. These were Megamos type 48 (or T6 chips).
This meant new keys had to be programmed by plugging in specialised equipment into the car and coding the key(s) directly into the vehicle’s memory using a pin number (extracted from the vehicle by ourselves).
REMOTE KEY FOBS: If you’re after a remote central locking fob (even if you don’t have one at present then we can provide this for you (providing the vehicle came with one when new).
KEYS LOCKED INSIDE? Amongst other ways of this happening, many cars will self-lock if left unlocked (often after just a minute!) as a security measure. Using non-destructive techniques we can get into your vehicle and get you up and running again, even outside office hours! Call us immediately.
BROKEN KEYS / KEY BROKE IN LOCK? Key extraction service available. Don’t stress, help is only a phone call away. Even when keys are badly broken / worn down, solutions are at hand.
STOLEN KEYS: Had a key, or your only key stolen? If one’s gone missing or you’re unsure if someone else may have a copy then we can get this key deactivated from the vehicles memory , ensuring YOUR CAR STAYS IN YOUR HANDS! Lock changes or even re-coding existing locks where possible are also services we provide on site.

This could be just a re-programming that is required. Early models can be done by yourself (only if you have 2 keys). Most models however require simple diagnostic programming, call the experts at Aston’s Access for professional advice and a simple fixed price.
We can help with this. A new key is made firstly by damage free picking / decoding a lock. The key is then quickly cut to code. When this is done, our state of the art equipment and software is used to program Audi keys and deactivate any if necessary. Call right now for a quick and simple quote.
