this is the link for new key fobs and they have tech on hand to walk you threw coding the key fob
they sale to every one but mostly dealers and this has the better prices when you order then dealer does
all you need to do is call them give them the model numbers of old key fob and your vehicle specs and you can order new fob here

now with the battery drain hole its in the middle under the battery unfortunatley but easy fix find where all the water is congregating at say to one side get a drill and bit and drill small weep hole where the water is sitting at this will relieve the water

Key remote won't lock the door change fuse and battery in remote still don't work


Common Reasons Why Your Car Door Isn't Locking Properly The key fob battery is dead: This is one of the most common reasons why your car door lock is not working. If your locks aren't working, replacing the battery in the key fob could solve the issue. The key fob is faulty: If the battery isn't the problem, the issue may be with the fob itself. If you go to your car dealer, they can hook the fob up to a computer and make sure that the programming is still good. If it's not sending a signal, the fob will likely have to be replaced. A fuse is blown: If one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be a blown fuse. Replacing the fuse will correct the problem. This is a cheap and easy fix The solenoid is bad: Again, if one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be with the door lock solenoid. Replacing it may require removing the car door panel You have a broken wire: If the lock isn't getting power, hold the lock switch either up or down, and then open and close the door repeatedly to see if the lock will work. If it works sometimes, you probably have a broken wire

The key fob in my passat will not lock or open the doors


first does the key fob open the trunk or does it have a alarm/panic button? if it does and they work then you have a problem inside the fob if they dont work or that is not an option then it sounds like it might need a new battery.

Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery


I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!

Front door locks on a 99 passat


You have the wrong KEY if it won't turn any locks.
You can use the KEY fob from another Passat.
The one you have was most likey not the original
and the car was reprogrammed to except that FOB.

The Fuse panel Is inside the DRIVES side.
Open the Driver door. Look at the side of the DAShboard.
THat Giant "B" Shapped plastic cover pops off.

Check the fuses...IF any are broken,black or no good.
REplace them

Hope this helps

Key fob on my audi a3 1998 has stopped working


the problem is inside the key fob if there is no response from the key fob at all then a new one will be needed. the problem is in side there is a mini circuit board in which all the sensors for that specific car are soldered on they can break very easly.
