Default Keyless Entry sync

Hi all. I don't have the manual to my car and was hoping one of you could give me the steps to re-programming my keyless entry as it sets forth in the manual. It's an '04 A4. I've followed the steps in the manual in the past and its turned out fine...but now that I changed the battery (which seems to crap out every month), I need to do this again. Thanks!

y does your battery crap out every month?
lol
anywho:

To program the remote functions on a new key, get in your car with the car off and the driver side window rolled down.

insert the new key into the ignition

insert your vallet key in the driver side door lock (outside the car)

turn the vallet key towards lock and hold it there

while it is held towards lock, press the unlock button on your new remote for
2 seconds.

let go

press it again for 2 seconds

Thanks for getting back to me. This isn't a new key. I'm not sure why the battery is always dying in the keyless entry fob. It's annoying as all hell. I don't think the key needs to be re-programmed, just synced back up.

You can just insert the fob key into the ignition while holding down the unlock button then turn the ignition into the on position while still holding the unlock button. Then let go and turn off the engine.

Works every time for me and not everyone has more than one key.

I bought mine in new condition from original keyless dot com. They come with a new battery and look like new. It had hell to pay trying to pragram it because I didnt have a valet key. I think Audi actually calls it an emergency key. I also bought a blank for it and had it cut at the local lock smith and they put the new key blade on the remote. The price is a fraction of new. Good luck!

www.keyfast.com I got my key cut and the four button brand new for 190.00 You shoot them a email with your title and license on it, they use the vin # and boom. As long as your handle was never changed your good. Stick to one of the two suggestions up top to sync it.

Need some help, We bought a 2000 A6 2.7t Q. nice little car it is to be donated to a family in need for children with health issues. aka M-A-W. So we bought two new keys from the Audi Dealer however after paying out the rear for all the things they found that need to be fixed they never re sync? the keys. Any one know how this is done on this model. As the dealer wants me to fork out yet another $145.00 dollars to sync. these new keys that cost me $308.00. I mean seriuosly I have a CLS65 I F@#ked up the key for that and it cost $120.00 bucks out the door from the rip off kings Mercedes.
Why in the hell is it so much for a 10 year old car? And can anyone help with this?

Default syncing 2 keys

I got a replacement key fob for my 2004 Audi A4 and I can program the original or the new one but not both at the same time. What am I doing wrong?
