  1. Golf V & Jetta V
    I know there are several other threads on this topic. I've been through them all and found no help, so I'm trying a fresh one in the hope that someone out there can suggest something that I have not already tried. I have a 2009 Jetta Sportwagon (2.5) that leaks. It's been caught in the rain a...
  2. Golf V & Jetta V
    I need to run something by you guys. Someone who has experience with keys and programming. Facts - 2008 Rabbit, base, 2dr, MT. All stock so it seems. I am second or 3rd owner. No accidents, no sign of painting/accidents. I got it with just one key that seemed to be aftermarket and the remote...
  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I bought a replacement ignition switch and the keys with tumbler and steering lock assembly. When I put a paper clip into the tumbler hole to hold in the retaining mechanism, the stub that slots into and rotates the shaft that goes through the steering lock to the switch, is not aligned...
  4. Passat (B7)
    Hello All, I am new here and to VWs and I am just starting to learn. I bought a 2013 passat a couple of months ago and it only had one key. I am looking into getting a second key. Dealership wants about $400 to purchase the key/remote, cut the key and program it/remote. I prefer not to pay $400...
  5. Jetta SportWagen
    Hey, all. First time here and I'm happy I found this forum. I finally replaced my water-damaged keyfob(new body and chip, same blade from previous one), and I'm having trouble programming it. I'm wondering if I really need to take it to a dealer or a locksmith, since the lowest price I've been...
  6. Golf/GTI VI
    Hi all, drive a VW GTI 2011 (manual key no push to start). I have seen a few threads on this site with a similar issue but mine is a bit unique, will try to make it as concise as I can. About 3 years ago I lost the one key in my possession. Towed the car to dealership and got a new key. They...
  7. Phaeton
    I’m at a loss for what to do here. I have a 2005 V8 Phaeton. My wife tried turning it on to move it the other day, problem was, the thing wouldn’t turn on, nor would it relinquish the key. So, the key is stuck in the ignition. Won’t turn on, no lights come on so there’s no power. I’ve tried...
  8. Golf V & Jetta V
    So I have a 2008 MK5 GTI and I lost my key for it the problem I am facing now is that I have another key I got from the dealer so I can crank the car but will not start due to immobilizer also the key cannot be programed because the dealer said that I need to replace my ECU and my cluster now...
  9. Jetta VII
    2015 Jetta TDI with pushbutton start. No slot in steering column to start engine with the key blade. Has anyone found out what it would take to add a traditional style ignition? Have seen the ignition switches online. What I'd like to do is add it and then enable it in software. The goal is to...
  10. A4, S4, RS4 (B6 and B7)
    Cheers. From the looks of it, this question has been asked a thousand different ways. But nothing sounded like it accurately applied here, so I'll just ask for general ideas and insight. I picked up an 06 Cabrio 1.8T from a guy who said it just needed new keys. I assumed there would be more...
  11. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I recently purchased an 04 GTI VR6, amazingly fun car, but I lost the one key it came with. I bought two new ones that have yet to be cut but when I brought them to a locksmith he explained that just cutting them will not allow them to drive the car, the immobilizer needs to be programmed to...
