Seattle Audi Automotive Locksmith


Audi keys can be made by Element Locksmith LLC.  Most people can’t believe that this can be done.  We have invested in the technology and training to make Audi keys.  We will arrive at your location within 30 minutes and make you a key from scratch right on the spot. When you lose Audi keys, the dealership is unable to help you on the same day because they have to order a specific key for your specific vehicle by VIN from the manufacturer.  This process takes 2 to 3 business days.  Furthermore, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealership for them to program the key.  This is why several Audi dealerships work exclusively with Element Locksmith LLC, so you the customer, can avoid the frustration of having to wait several days for Audi keys to be made.

Emergency Audi Locksmith Services

Whether you are locked out of your Audi or have completely lost your keys Element Locksmith is here to help! It can be very frustrating to get locked out or lose your keys but it can be even more frustrating to spend time waiting for a locksmith technician to get out to your location only to find out that they are inexperienced with making Audi keys. Our experienced locksmith technicians are trained on the latest tools and technologies to be able to come out to your vehicles location, diagnose what needs to be done, and either get you into your vehicle or make a new key for you right on the spot.

As is the case with most European and luxury vehicles if you locked your keys in the trunk it won’t be enough just to open the car. If you do not open the car correctly the trunk release button is disabled to prevent someone from breaking into your car and stealing things from the trunk. If the security system is triggered the only way into the trunk is specialty tools or generating a new key. Our locksmith technicians are trained with the latest techniques and are very familiar with these types of situations and are able to assist in getting your trunk unlocked without damaging your vehicle or having the need to be towed to an Audi dealer.

Audi Key Types

There are many different types of keys for automotive but Audi keeps it pretty consistent between their models. Up until 1998 most Audi models used the industry standard side cut metal keys which are fairly simple and easy to copy and generate with standard manual key cutting machines. Around 1998 Audi joined other automotive manufacturers to introduce high security and transponder keys that are programmed to the vehicle. This is an anti-theft measure to prevent forced starts on the igntion for example jamming a screwdriver into the ignition and starting the vehicle. Without a recognized key it will prevent the ignition from starting the vehicle even though it was turned into the starting position.

We stock the following Audi key types:

  • Mechanical keys
  • Transponder keys
  • Laser cut keys
  • Remote flip keys
