Could be any number of causes- if you don't have a good Audi mechanic, you "Audi" find one now-


quick and simple question here. If your car is equipped with an immobilizer it can do this yes. Does your dash have a icon that looks like a key on it when you put your key in the ignition and move to power on?

Yes, it does have the key icon.


easy fix 1 of 2 methods. first one is to put your key in the ignition turn it to power on (don't crank) leave the car for 10 minutes in this position. after the time is up turn the key back and try and start the car. If this does not work make sure you have your radio code. 2nd option to fix this is remove both the battery cables. Touch them to one another to drain the residual voltage in the system and then wait 15 - 20 minutes. after that put the cables back on the battery put in your radio code then start the car. This should resync your key to your car.
