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
