Having had this battery experience 2x in 2 yrs of S4 ownership - go straight
to the dealer and get a new one- after Audi Road Service re-charges your
battery - . It's covered under warranty. The road service tech told me that
this a common problem with S4(s). He said that u should never leave your S4
sitting for more than a few days w/o turning on the engine - if even for a
few minutes. Oh, and yes - put the key in the door - it opens that way too.

I just went to start my s4 and it didn't... well more specifically, I
couldn't even gain access to the car.  I seem to remember some grumblings
about a battery drain on the car in the two weeks I've been a list member.
Alarm won't open locks, and key won't even open the locks... I guess it's a
electronic connection from the key to the physical lock... arrrgh!
Supposing that the battery is truly dead, which I think is the case, as the
flashing led for the alarm isn't even flashing, what is it that's causing
this drain?  And more importantly, how the hell do I gain access to the
car... all I want to do is jump it and get on the road... Thanks for your
help in advance.
