Audi A8 Key Fob Programming?

Key fob Programming.Yes its possible.But in some cases the programming dont work.This is due to two reasons.
Either you have not tried the procedure correctly or on your car the manual Key Fob Programming is not supporting.In that case I'm afraid its job for a dealership or a auto locksmith as you need someone with the OBD tools to plug into the car and re-code the key.Also all the keys have to be re-coded at the same time otherwise you'll get the new out of sync with the old.

Now the Key Fob Programming procedure is as follows :----------
First check that the battery in the key-fob is in good condition ( typically needs replacing every 5 years or so)
Re-code as follows:
1. Switch Ignition ON and leave the key in the ignition.
2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the Drivers door using a second key.
3. Using the remote control press the Unlock button once, and the horn will sound once.
4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the coding procedure. The remote control will now be programmed.

NOTE : When performing programming on additional remotes the procedure is the same, except you press the unlock button 2, 3 or 4 times for the different remote.
For example : If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice with a 1 second interval between each press, repeat for 3 and 4 remotes.

5. Switch Ignition OFF.
6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.
7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remotes.
8. The ignition must be switched OFF between programming each remote control.

In most of the cases this procedure help.Hope in your case also it should work.
This basic details will help.Thanks.
