My daughters purse was stole and the only way to get a key is by having her car towed to a VW dealer and paying $275 for a new key. Said key will take atleast 24 hours after car is towed to dealer. Is it possible to shut off alarm and rig ignition. if not.. would you like to buy a VW for cheap :)

I have all my key lost, what should I do?

that is funny, just call them, and tell them your Vin code, they will make one for you. I've never heard of anyone having to tow their car to the dealer to get a new key. But you may pay more than normal in the dealership, Someone may make a key by themselves, all they need is a car key programmer

choose the models, whatever you want to make

No chip in the key

There is a  security resistor on the key and your going to have to get a new key from GM dealer and  it will come programmed right from the dealer. Once you have the new pass lock keys, your going to have to reprogram the Cars ECM to recognize the new keys and takes about 30 min. You can call a lock smith to come to you and he can cut new pass lock keys and reprogram the car and keys together where you are so you don't have to pay for the tow to the dealer. Good luck and hope this helps.
