As a key is used time and again the sliding in and out of the ignition wears off little fines of the metal off the key. What we do to get them working again is insert the key and give the key a good wack into the ignition. Tap it with a small hammer, your fist, etc. This will smash the fines built up in the bottom of the ignition and allow it to work again. Sometimes i have taken a can of air like you blow off a keyboard with and inset the straw to the bottom of the switch and give it little puffs of air to blow the fines out of the switch. Good luck!

Doors on my 1996 vw cabrio will not lock and unlock with the key. The interior button will still lock and unlock the doors.


Is your key worn down? Perhaps you should have another key made and see if thats the problem.

Do in need a scan tool to program a 2001 cabrio key


Programing the button REMOTE portion of the key is simple.
You do need 2 keys. You must be able to lock the drivers door and have the red led alarm light next to the lock button blink. If it does not blink, the alarm does not know the door is closed and will not go into program mode. Put one key in the ignition switch, turn on, do not start engine. Close the door, use 2nd key, turn door lock and hold in lock position for 10 seconds. Release key to neutral position.
Press a button on the remote, within 2 seconds press the same button again, the turn signal lights will flash,
this indicates your remote matches the car system and is now recognized. Unlock door remove key from ignition.
So don't pay extra 99 cents to $5 for these instructions in hopes of getting the KEY to function with the car.
Instructions are only for the keyless remote, not the key.

Unable to start my 2001 cabrio vw. I have a fairly new battery. Lights work. When I turn the key, there's nothing not a crank, nothing.


I would look to see if the anti-theft light is on next to the door lock. A 95 cabrio did this when I was test driving it. All we did was get out of the vehicle and manual lock and unlock the car, then it went away. This could definitely be more complicated than this, but always worth a try.
