All 4 of my LEDs are out as well. Not sure if they are all dead or just wired in series

Just got my car back after a nightmare with a failed alternator and can report that with new door sensors from eBay (4 for about 30) and new LEDs from Audi (16 each) my keyless entry is now working fine. I do wonder whether the previous owner stored the car outdoors causing the door handles to fill with moisture and rot the electronics inside.

Glad it is resolved.

To be fair, cars are supposed to work outdoors!

I just think the quality of the factory LEDs was poor, and the keyless sensors have always been rubbish - at least on the D4 you can replace just the sensor, if you had an older car you would have needed paintwork!

Replaced all mine Friday, I can't believe I've had the car all this time and never seen them lit before. So at 4 years old when we bought it, they'd already failed. They fell to bits as I removed them from the handles. All the AliExpress ones work perfectly.
