Changed battery now no power


Yes this is a problem, unfortunately you may have to bring it to a Volkswagen dealer for them to fix this issue. First try to lock and unlock the drivers side door with the Key instead of the automatic unlock button on the remote. If this doesn't work continue to insert the key into the ignition turn it to the on position, do not try to start it yet, and pump the gas peddle three times holding down the third time, then try to start the car.
