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.

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.

2005 VW Jetta ignition/key problem


I just had this problem as well... thank god I had a handy AAA guy to my rescue, who used a flat head screwdriver in the ignition to get it to turn a bit, which caused the white lock I could see (that holds the key in while driving) to release... and then I could insert the key... Though I notice this is now becoming a reoccuring issue... so I think the ignition needs replacing...

It could just be out of adjustment. I recommend going to a dealership for the part. The VIN number should identify your car specs exactly to avoid getting the wrong part

I have a 1996 vw jetta and i turn off the ignition, remove the key and still have power to the radio and door sensor.


Some cars allow power to the radio, etc. even after the key is turned off and taken out of the ignition. If everything turns off when the door opens, then it is most likely normal for your car. I know the newer VW Jetta's do this.
