Question about 2003 Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

We inherited our son's 2003 GTI. The 'flip' key doesn't pop out anymore. While going through his things we found several new keys which come in two parts. Question is-can we take the chip out of the old key and insert it in the new key? We need to know before we break the old one.

Those keys are laser cut keys therefore you can change the chip but you have to make sure that the key you are going to use matches the old 1/was laser cut for that ignition barrel.

Cant pop my trunk in my 2003 Lincoln town car key's locked in the trunk and my alarm keeps going off what do I do

You don't have an extra key I presume.
With the right documentation the Ford/Lincoln Dealer can make a new key or.
Call the Auto Club Emergency Service or Locksmith
Are the car doors unlocked? And does the back seat fold down?
(just checking on those last two things)
Does that help at all?

Lost my keys to my 2003 expedition my son took key switch out put a new one but anti theft wont let it start I found the old key how can I start it

You may be able to hold the original key close to the key lock and try starting the truck with a valet key that does not have a chip.
The sensor for the chip is close to the cylinder.

I am haveing some problems with my fuel pump new one put it in and it still want start fined a fuse that is a 30 amp was pop put one in turn on key and still pop

Hi Perry, I'm glad to help!

First thing to do is go to the Library and pull up the wiring for your truck and find out what all goes to that fuse. Most of the time the circuit that on that fuse can go to several different thing. If it only goes to the fuel pump then see if there is a connect going back to the fuel pump somewhere at the front of the vehicle USUALLY in the finder well on the frame. Unplug that connector and see if the fuse still pop's. If it doesn't then you know the problem is in that wiring going to the rear of the truck. Find the short and fix it, most like its grounding somewhere on the frame. If it still pop's then you know the problem is in the front part of the truck, start checking frayed or damaged wiring. Unplug different thing like alternator, starter and connector and see if it goes away. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Perry.

Mk4 gti vr6 has power but doesn't start, runs with pop start

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

Ignition key will not turn.

This happens to me sometimes because the pressure of the steering lock is enough to keep me from being able to turn the key. Try moving the steering wheel while turning the key, if that doesn't work, flip the key over and try again (unless it is a one sided key), if that doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a bad lock cylinder and it will have to be replaced.

The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.
