    I have an 2018 Audi A6. How does the car know who is in the driver's seat if both key fobs are in

    Thank you for reaching out in regard to this specific question. I am more than happy to take a look into this matter for you, are you able to send me a PM with your VIN and contact information? I may have to engage some additional technical resources but I certainly appreciate the opportunity to do so.

    Thank you!

    I've noticed that it doesn't really know - pretty sure it's distance based - but also seems to rely on any inputs and locks in that Key as 1st come/1st Serve.... So if the door is opened by the passenger with a key nearby it picks up that key 1st - even though the driver may also be standing right outside the driver side door but has not yet hit the unlock....

    If car is already open it seems to capture closer key most of the time - although I also think key signal strength is battery dependent - so a low battery seems to lose out as well....

    Worst case - make sure to setup the memory settings for both keys and all it takes is a button press on entry if it picked the wrong key.
