Question about 2009 Volkswagen Routan

Open Question

How do you get into a Routan with the keys locked in?

How do you get into a Routan with the keys locked in and the car running? It's apparently shut down all electronic capabilities in my spare key. Even the manual valet key doesn't work in the lock!

My 2001 Nissan xterra turned on all by its self. When I got to it i unlocked my running car put the key in the ignition and nothing happened I tried turning it off with the key but didn't work. The car...


The car apparently has a remote starter installed. This allows for starting the engine without a key. Most aftermarket starters will run for 15 minutes, then if you haven't entered the car and inserted the key to the on position, it will shut off automatically. The only way to shut the car off while the remote is in control is to press the brake pedal. The key won't work to turn it off UNLESS you get in the car, turn the key to the ON position, press the brake, THEN turn the key off.

Why does my front a/c blows cold air but my read blows hot for a 2009 volkswagen routan ?


Does your Routan have the multi zone control. The back temperature can be controlled separately from the front. Look at the console on the roof between the front and middle row seats. There is a mixture control there that will control the temperature for the back.

My car has the round red light showing in the panel box. It will not start. The manuel says something about trunk circuit.


I have experienced this before, In my case the the RF (Radio Frequency) chip in the key had failed and when this happens the car is essentially locking its self from staying running; its a security feature. In my case the vehicle would start and then in roughly 2-5 seconds would shut off and the alarm light would flash (far as i know the round red light on the dash) You need a new key (NOT the key-less remote ) and then the key must be reprogrammed at a capable establishment such as a dealership or locksmith. To test if this is your issue try using the spare key, if you have one. If it starts and remains running using the spare then you know your main key is bad. Once again this may or may not be your problem, in my experience it was the key. On a side note its not very cheap to replace a key, and there are 2 different variations of the keys for your vehicle (04 Chrysler Sebring Based on your info we pretty much have the same vehicle; I have the 2.4l) The dealership referred to them as the grey and black version. Hope this Helps.

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

I have a chrysler 300 touring, 3.5L. There are two keys and a remote start. I cannot start the car with the second (spare) key. I can actually start but it automatically shuts down and it wont even start...


Since the second key does not have the electronics in the case, it will not allow the car to run, as it thinks its being stolen. If you give your local chrysler dealer your VIN number, they should be able to produce a second key that will start the car. (VIN number is found at the bottom of the windshield on the driver's side or on you ownership)
