U just have to re program your key, that is the normal thing that happen when u try to star the car with some key with the same code that the car.No worry is not any problem engine.

Key buttons will not operate locking system,i have changed battery but still no good.use master key,gets me into the car but alarm goes off and also when i attempt to drive it.


I have the same problem kinda. Lost my master key and sent my ecu off with a home made 2 button key to program immobiliser. This key works to start the engin and drive but I cannot get the key to program with the alarm and locking system. You can try the following steps as may work for you.

I can get my car into programming mode after step 1 but step 2 does not work for me. The locks do not go off at all, not once or twice. Battery in remote key is fine as LCD lights red.

Can anyone help please?

e. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

STEP 2 (Does not work for me)

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds
a. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 2 seconds
b. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons, press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door locks should lock then unlock once indicating successful programming. If the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps 6a and 6b as the remote was not accepted.

7. Open drivers door

Hope this works for you.

Replacing the ECU on a 1999 VW Passat Sedan 1.8 Turbo


if u have an electronic key than security codes from ur key must be programmed into the ecu to match-- most ecu change overs on cars usually require a trip to the dealer so they can install their programming most auto shops dont have the funds to, or customer base to spend thousands [every auto maker has their own software and update and change every year]-- every year on reprogramming software for ecu-- they may do only 1 or 2 a year
