Nano Start V3 "START" button only cycles locks and turns on dome light

0 votes

2012 Audi S4


I just programmed 2 new remotes to Nano Start V3, old remotes lost and unknown if system was working previously.


New remotes confirmed programmed and will LOCK / UNLOCK / TRUNK.


LED on antenna is flashing.

  • When pressing "START",
  • the door locks cycle and dome light comes ON
  • pause 
  • door locks cycle again.
  • pause
  • alarm chirps and hazards flash then doors cycle again.
  • pause
  • door locks cycle again.
  • pause
  • alarm chirps and dome light goes out.
  • pause

LED on antenna is flashing whole time for operation and continues to flash after, also good to mention the OEM Audi fob is more than 10meters away from vehicle..

I'm not sure if I messed something up programming the key fob but seemed simple enough - Key ON/ hold button till LED flashes and release / press button once / press brake / press LOCK button on 2 new fobs / press brake / key OFF. Tested both remotes and confirm programmed..


What am I missing?
