Re: key coding on golf 5 2008 model (frikkie)

That generation of Immobilizer 4 is considered "Not Supported" at this time. It would be best to have the keys adapted at a dealer.

technically speaking the precedure is basically the same as immo 3. except for the fact that the transponder must be precoded. the key that i am trying to code to the system is a original key cut from vw using the vin nr.etc. according to the guys down here from the factory, a key ordered from vw comes precoded to the vin in the vehicles cluster. i have tried coding the key using vag com. the cluster excepts the skc, adaption. 01, new amount of key, save. exit. but the SAFE symbol on the cluster does not want to dissapear. what i have noticed in the beginning when i have punched in the skc, the SAFE symbol were flashing. after a few attempts the SAFE kept staying on when i have made a attempt to code the key. please try and assist. is it possible for other faults in the ecu to affect the coding of keys to immo. having no problems communicating with ecu and cluster. see immo log. thanks.

Re: (frikkie)

As pointed out by Dana and Uwe we are talking about IMMO 4c here while you referred to IMMO 4a for which the instructions are indeed very similar to IMMO 3. However, IMMO 4c is a completely different animal and this is not supported by VCDS at the present time.

Hi

Is vcds still not able to program vw with immo 4c?

How can I tell (from dash display) if 08 Golf is immo 4c? - this car does not display key symbol in rev counter or SAFE in milometer.

Thanks colink
