Unhappy New Key Help

I have a 2006 Audi A6 Quatro 3.2. Car running perfect, lost the only key I had to it. Ordered a new key from a reputable locksmith that says he has ordered keys for Audi's before. He used Year, Make, Model, and Vin # to order it. Took about 4 days. Key gets here and his equipment will not activate it. The key works the door, will rotate to on position (does not activate dash lights, does not release steering whee or transmission lock), and will rotate to the start position, but the key will not activate. When door is opened, normal lights that would come on, do (Clock, odometer etc.) When key is inserted into ignition and moved to on position. No lights come onto the dash. Not a battery problem. Was the key made wrong (defective) even though it allows rotation of the ignition switch. What is my next step? Do I have to have it towed into a dealer? Anything else I can try?

You might have a defective key. Are you sure it's an OEM Audi key?

You can also take it to the dealer to have it programmed as long as it's an OEM key.
