My used 2003 Passat came with both fobs unable to hold a key. I had to break them open to retrofit a loop. These are some great links that I bookmarked. The first one should give you programmin instructions.Good luck!

My 07 Pilot key fob has quit working, replaced the battery with the CR1616 like the one that was in it. Still not getting a light on the key fob when I push button. Its fob fried?

If the little light doesn't work when you push a button, it's either dead, or fried. Be sure you put the battery in correctly too.

I have 1 key fob for a 2003 Dodge Ram. It stopped working, so I replaced the batteries. It still won't work, and I can't get it to reprogram using the instructions in the manual. It seems I have to have 1...

Are you sure the connection to the battery inside the FOB is good? The one I have, it is possible to push the battery too far down and it does not quite connect.
A dealer can also reprogram it or sell you a new one based on your vehicle is number.
