Programming a used/replacement key for a 2016 Audi Q3

Question by gwlong1983 posted 6 months 2 weeks ago in Q3

Good afternoon,

I saw that there is an article about reprogramming Audi flip key fobs, which is exactly what i have.

Unfortuantely, part of the instructions require inserting the key blade and switching to on.

The 2016 Audi Q3 uses bluetooth or something similar, and does not have an ignition slot.

Before I buy a replacement key:<br />
Can it be self programmed?

Do I follow the instructions on Youcanic page, but press the ignition button without turning on the engine?

Has anyone been able to do this for a car that uses the keyless start technology?

Thanks
