Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
I know the keys have little immobilizers in them that looks like a pill almost. Try putting the fob next to the key inside the ignition as if it were still attached, and see if that makes a difference, and you can buy new fob shells on ebay for around $5 if you look hard enough

Put some crazy glue at the end of the key but not too much that is going to drip inside the keyhole of the ignition and see if that will glue two broken keys back together and wait 5 minutes and then pull it out you do have to hold the key pushing in so that the glue will work

Hello, do you know what the locksmith did to get the code on your key? Did anything else flash on the screen when the car would not start. My car is doing the same thing, and my Jaguar dealer is 200 miles away. My screen is showing [Engine Fault, Transmission Fault and DSC Fault]. Any help would be greatly appreciated..

according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

I have a 2001 C240 with the same issue. I removed the positive battery cable from the battery and kept it off for 30 seconds then replaced it. Everything was reset and the key worked.
