Default What Do You Do When Remote Is Dead.

I was asked this question and couldn't answer it. I have a 2014 A6 with the Start/Stop button that only requires the remote to be close by.
I can take the key out to open the door, but how would I start the car when there is no spot to put a key?

You have several options. You could:

1. RTFM; or

2. Call Audi roadside assistance; or

3. Look at your dash on the 4 o'clock position of the steering wheel (where you would normally find a traditional key ignition. There is a symbol of a key there.) Hold your dead FOB there and the car will start when you press the button.

Thanks for the sarcasm, but I get enough of that at work.

Off topic, but that TSB link in your signature, does that apply to TSBs for the C7?

Actually, #1 is good advice. Also, he answered your question in #3 (if you got that far before replying to his post).

+1.

#3 is the smart solution but people get to #3 because he / she did #1.

Those who don't do #1 and got stranded typically go #2 in despair.

Faites attention à qui vous appelez un «farceur». Snagitseven est le modérateur.

I am currently in a C6 while I wait for my C7 to be delivered. The link is for my typical C6 crowd.

Not a farceur here, actually am glad you asked the question because I didn't know myself.

I believe if you try to start the car without a detectable key fob the dashboard screen tells you where to place the fob RFID. Although I've only had the car a few weeks I've had this pop up after grabbing the wrong set of keys. Not sure how I mistook the normal sizes Honda key fob for that brick that Audi considers a key fob. So looks like you can skip steps 1 and 2.

Ah but then you'd have to RTFS (Read The Fine Screen) and reading or at least appreciating what one reads appears to be an issue for the OP as it appears to make him/her grumpy.

Apparently, after referring to me and others as "jokers" (using the elitist French form "farceurs" no less) the OP may have departed the thread (perhaps to read his manual?). I guess the data point here is to maintain a sense of humor, not take things too seriously and make sure you wear a slightly thicker skin when participating in a public forum.
