Question about 2008 Volkswagen Jetta
Key will not go into the ignition on my 2008 VW jetta
There is a security flap that is supposed to recognize only your car key. Sometimes this flap can get stuck down. The quick fix is to have the dealership get some WD-40 sprayed on it so it wont stick. The more permanant fix (and better fix) is to have the dealership replace your ignition. The ignition is covered under most warrantys.

This happened to me with my 2005 Jetta also, except I couldn'y put the key back in at all. I had to have it towed to VW. They said tumbler where the key goes collapsed and had to be replaced. Hope yours is under warrenty...

The secondary aux air pump needs to be removed in order to access the coil pack secured to the block. Remember the bolt for the coil needs to be torqued down to 7ft lb.

Reset the tire pressure warning, same as you would any service issue. Insert key in ignition, hold wrench button and min button, then start engine.
