View Full Version : Key matching

03-20-2006, 09:06 AM
I recently bought an A4 with just one key (regular no remote) I need to buy a remote key on ebay and have checked vag-com for relevant details. I believe I need an 8DO862257E match. Does anyone know if only an exact match of this part number will work or can i use a key (that say) begins with 8DO.... but ends in something other than above. Thanks.
(ps. first post)

sounds like you have a 96? (should include in post) but assuming you have a 96, I'm gonna say you can't use any of the remote/keys.

maybe someone else will chime in but i believe u can only use the regular key with seperate remote.

It's a '99. It should have a remote but the previous owner lost it.

Sorry about the duplicate post... lesson learned.
