Question about Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Passat that I bought a Keyfob for on Ebay and went to the dealership to have the correct replaced. I programmed the fob, it will lock, unlock and open the truck, but when I put it in the ignition the engine turns over, and then stops. A light on the dashboard with symbol that looks like a car with a key under it blinks. Any ideas what I did wrong?

Go back and have it reprogrammed again. If you know any repair shops that have the Launch X431 scan tool they can program the FOB with the X431.

How program the key remot


Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.If the remote s faulty then keyfob will not get programmed.Insert the key in ignition.Turn the key to on position,and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on.Then with the keyfob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.These is just the basic procedure,but sometimes it will not help.
On that case dealer is the only option.

I lost a keyfob with key to my Pontiac G6. I have


Once you program this key fob the other one will not work.The reason is when you program the fobs how ever many you have,you have to program them all at the same time.So if you only program one fob only that fob will work the other one will loose it`s program.You have to take it to the dealership to program the fob.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Re programme of key fob for a 2004 Jaguar x type


More infomation can be found at http://www.bluejag.co.uk Jaguar X-Type Programming (Pairing) a Remote KeyFob X-Type 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0L
keyfob.jpg

Programming or pairing a new remote Keyfob for the X Type is a very simple job that will cost a substantial amount if it is done by Jaguar. It's annoying but this may need to be done if your Keyfob battery has been allowed to go flat, or the car battery has been removed for any length of time.
Follow these steps exactly and you should have no problems, pairing old or replacement Keyfobs for your car.

1.)I would recommended that you ensure all key fobs are fitted with new batteries. ( Click here to see battery replacement guide).
2.)Get in the car and close the drivers side door.
3.)Put the key into the ignition and turn to position I.
4.)Wait 5 seconds
5.)Turn the key quickly to position II then back to I four times.
6.)You should hear a single chime.
7.)Remove the Key
8.)For each Keyfob in rapid succesion. Press any single button on the keyfob you wish to pair, you should hear a chime as each Keyfob is paired with the security system. After the chime do the next Keyfob.
9.)Check operation of each Keyfob.

Transponder chip in key fob


This will all depend upon what country you are in, and if the vehicle even has the need for the chip to be programmed at all.

When you put a proper key in the ignition, is there a antitheft logo that cycles with the other indicators?

VW antitheft indicator in the USA often looks like a car with a key under it

In the USA, thought the keys have a MEGAMOS RFID chip, no system was active until 2000, and on some models, not until 2002

A system requires a VIRGIN chip. Once the chip is programmed to a car, the chip is locked to that car. Some new software can unlock and refresh some chips, but not 100%

I had a client come in TODAY with a 2003 Passat, and an EBAY flip key.... I wasted a half hour programming time..... but I carry the lower half of remote, which hold the blade and the chip, so was able to fix client up, when EBAY failed.

If this was helpful, please post a nice review for City Lock in Boulder Colorado listings on Google Maps, Yahoo etc. This listing will link you to my website as well. On my website are resources for finding a legitimate locksmith near you. Be sure you are hiring a REAL locksmith!

Thank You

Reprogramming jaguar x type key fob


Your key FOB is easily programmed by yourself without the need of computer, here is how: Push and hold the trip computer button on the left stalk, while holding the button turn the ignition ON and OFF several times untill you hear a confirmation tone from the glovebox area, when the tone is heard, release the button and remove the key from the ignition, immediately after push any button on the Key FOB and you'll hear another tone that confirms the programming.
