I hope this might help. -- I had the same problem yesterday and fix the problem today. The steps on the manual (page 32) was too simple and wrong for my case. Read carefully the followint steps and thank me if these steps work. -- JB (owner of Jetta 2.5, 2006 model)
* The most important thing is to make sure that the LED in the driver side window frame stays blinking. The blinking means that the receiver has entered a programming mode and is waiting for the signal from the key. Good luck!
1. Insert the key with a faulty remote into the driver door lock and turn the key to the UNLOCK position 3 times in succession for at least 0.5 seconds each time, and within a total duration of 5 seconds.
: The system should now enter so called a "programming mode" and the window frame LED should blinking once every 1~2 seconds for the next 15 seconds. The faulty remote must be programmed during this period.
2. Aim the key to the (infrared) window frame LED which can be considered as a key signal receiver and press the lock button of the key fob and keep it pressed. While the button is pressed, press the unlock button three times in succession for at least 0.5 seconds each time.
3. Release both buttons.
* After all the efforts described above, the system should now acknowledge a successful programming by flashing the LED once every 1~2 seconds for more than 10 seconds. (Someone said that the small LED on the key fob should also blink a few times; although it didn't in my case.)

SOURCE: 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!
