I didn't see anything about KEY FOB programming on this site from bentleypublishers....perhaps I overlooked it.

I would suggest going to the Bentley Publishing site here:

Not to be a smart azz but have you replaced the battery yet in the fob?

If so then it could be a bad fob, reciever, power issue, etc...

Depending where you live if the temp. is over 45 degrees F the glow plugs shouldn't be needed for the engine to start. Have you ever had the check engine light come on? Your problem is probably not in the glow plugs.

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

Jeff
