Call your VW dealer and tell them what is going on and find out if they can cut a key if you give them the vin # of the car.

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.


To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

Do the airbags and seatbealt deploy in a accident if you dont apply brakes?


Yes, absolutely if the ignition key is turned in "ON" position!
No matter if you apply or not the car brakes, the airbags and seatbelts deploy in a accident if the ignition key is turned in "ON" position. The Airbag system is completely independent from the brake system.

Can removing the battery terminals with the key still in the ignition be responsible for damaging the wiring system of my VRG6 golf? This has lead to damage of the coil to the spark plugs.


In a word.....NO
My daughter has a Jetta..... electrical problems are common in these cars.... remove the key, let the car sit for an hour with the battery disconnected.... connect the battery, turn the key to the run position but DON'T start the engine...... let it sit like that for about 2 minutes.... if there are no issues with the car, is should start right up and run fine after that

What does it mean when the airbag light comes on?


Either the sensor in the bumper has lost communication with the airbag module, or the airbag module is bad, or the airbag package itself is damaged somehow.

Accidently damaged the ignition key.and now the car will start and the cut off,and the key code light flashes


If the key and the fob have separated, you should still be able to start the car by holding the fob near the ignition when you start the vehicle. This will allow your car to read the immobilizer code from the chip in your fob. You can do this temporarily until you can get a new key. Once the car starts, you can move the fob away - it only needs to be there while starting the car.
