Sorry about your loss.
Hold out a little while longer before you start selling off "parts" of the
Probably when you sell your extra key, or keys since the thief should not
have one, the car will be recovered.
ebay is an option and some sell for $6 while others for up to $36. AND post
the numbers off the inside of the remote.
I am looking for another switchblade, but don't really need one since I have
two types of remotes for my A4. <g>
I better go out right now and put 'The Club' on mine then! ;-)
It still needs an oil pump and a turbo I think, so the thief would not get
too far! lol
I have heard of vehicles being found even after 2 months time and after the
insurance company has paid for them.
I have had 2 vehicles stolen from me but I finally got them back again. BTW
they were not worth getting full coverage. <g>
i have only one master key with my A6, i am looking remote key too
I was told i at least need to another key for programming the remote
I once asked dealer for remote key, they wanted around $200.
i did some research in internet , i should be able to get switchblade
and program it .
but so far i still did not get it, i am in GTA, i dont know if your
can use for my car
What year is your car? If it's a 97-99, this remote should work for
it. The switchblade key itself probably won't fit unless by some
miracle the cut is the same on your car. I'll sell this for a lot
less than $50 if you're interested (someone else told me you can buy
the blank switchblade at the dealer and have them cut it for $40).
yes or a vag-com tool.
your valet key or plastic key might work too as the 2nd key.
Is that with the key cut and programmed to your vehicle for the $200?
there are some places that can cut a key blank for less, but you have to
install it in the remote section with a tiny tool. I would buy more than
one blank to save some shipping costs. ;-)
I bought a couple of switchblade remotes off of Ebay to convert my '97 A4
over, got one of them working after some new batteries and then bought the
key from the dealer for $40. So right now I am up to $63 for the
switchblades and I still have to get my other remote working AND get some
key blanks cut. Oh and I bought the original remote for $17 shipped off of
the parts numbers should be the same, or close depending on 3 or 4 button
ALSO some keys will have immobilizer chips in them which has to be
programmed/matched to your vehicle.
