Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

2 Answers

My electronic key has been lost and my valet key which used to work, won't unlock the door.

How can I get my car door to open with the valet key when my automatic key has been lost or misplaced? The door used to open with the valet key. But it doesn't do anything now.

Cant get the key to turn in the door lock


You may be trying with a valet key.
Valet keys usually can unlock the driver's side door and start the car, but can't unlock the trunk or the glove box. This key is normally used when someone else operates your vehicle, such as a valet parking attendant.

Valet key will not open door or trunk


not sure about the door... but a valet key is just that. it should allow a 'valet', person other than you, to drive your car without having access to any storage areas. therefore you can lock valuables in the trunk. the system should also disable any electronic trunk switches with that key in the ignition.

Key Duplicated won't open door works with ignition only


Your duplicate key may be a valet key which would not let a parking lot attendant into the trunk or the doors. If you don't have the original master key, you may have to get a locksmith involved. I doubt the dealer would have key codes for a model that old.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

My manual key won't lock and unlock my door


hii how are you sur

it can't be the valet key beacuse the valet key works the opposite...It opens the doors but not the trunk. That model car has almost like a "double lock" on the trunk. If you put the non-valet key in the trunk keyhole and turn the key all the way to the right and remove the key while turned all the way to the right it will lock and re-lock the trunk to where the valet key will not be able to open it. They made it that way so you can lock pesonal items in your trunk, keep the original key, give the valet the valet key, and the valet cannot open the trunk. You might want to check the lines for the central lock system by the Drivers side door for a leak. That system is ran by a pneumatic pump located under the back seat. Does the key work in the front passenger's door? If so then its probably the actual lock on the drivers side door. Hope this helped you out.

good luck

accept the regards
