I lost my key on my 1990 100, and i seem to have hid my spare too well aswell. Does anyone have a wiring diagram or know how to hotwire this car?, i took that dash mostly apart and i can get to the ignition wires, seems to be alot of them and i dont know which ones to play with. oh and the audi dealer says they cant make new keys for cars under 1995 but u can get a new ignition set
but then id have to change all my door locks too.

Lets see..Bentley sells a good one...but they are pretty expensive...
Haynes sells one you could order from most auto parts stores...but its not that good, I have two that I'd only use to help get a fire started....
That leaves... www.alldatadiy.com...$24.95 for the first years subscription...renewals and additional cars are $14.95...I use it, I like it...easy to use...easy to print from

i did buy a manual, they gave me the wrong one and refused to give me the right one even after they said they would when i returned it. took my money and ran, so im a bit gun shy of buying another one atm

Even if you did hot wire the ignition the steering wheel is still locked and there is also the anti-theif system which you must also bypass.
Easier to get a locksmith to cut you a new key.

cut you a key on the spot. Doesn't cost much, then you can have duplicates made elsewhere...Rooster

i was told that the locksmith around here would charge me about 200 bucks to make a key, so i was wondering if it is possible to take the ignition out of my 89 100 parts car and put it into this one?, or is the ignition shot after u drill it like it says in the service guide, also if i just remove the ignition all together can i just install a push button start?

Or you can remove one of the lock such as the passenger door, or trunk, or glove compartment and take it in to have a locksmith cut a new key. The only gotcha is that the original ignition key did work on these locks.
