Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Got original VW keys from dealership as had lost one. My wife went to get keys recoded today but they could not do it. The dealership now wants £140/hr to diagnose the problem!! So they charge me £125 for 2 basic transponder keys and now cannot recode. What could the problem be? and is there a cheaper alternative to using them at £140/hr?
Also, instead of a recode can I just set the new keys with the existing code?
What is annoying is that I don't even think they checked to see if the new keys were faulty.
Any help would be great.
