Hello, So I am having issues with my B7 SEL Premium, so long story short my key fob got left in the washer luckily i remembered it and grabbed it, put in rice overnight than purchased a new battery for it. It worked, skip ahead 3 weeks later i took my car to the airport and left for work came back the next day got back to my car was able to unlock via the hand sensor and pushed the button to start it and it read key out of range. I tried again and no avail. Well after going to get another new battery for the fob, and messing around a bit I got it started got home turned it off and when i went to turn it back on again the message of key out of range? I am at a complete loss. I took apart the push button and cleaned the contacts like people suggest, done battery reset. Any advice would be great. Currently when i unlock the car and get in i press the push start button nothing happens, it's only after i turn the radio on manually i'm able to see the error message on the cluster. It is happening with both of my keys.
