I was told to have one key in the ignition and one in the door hold it to unlock it beeps 3 times then push a button on the fob it should sound once or twice then hold the key to unlock until it beeps 3 times again is this right???
sort of right.. here are the steps:
you need 2 keys.
1: switch ignition to ON position.
2: step out of vehicle and close all doors and hatch/trunk.
3: using second key in driver's door, turn key to UNLOCK position and hold for approx. 10 seconds or until alarm horn sounds 3 times.
4: press unlock/disarm button on first remote (alarm horn will briefly sound once to confirm programming).
5: repeat if necessary for second remote.
6: repeat if necessary for third and forth remote.
7: turn and hold the key in the driver's door lock to UNLOCK position (alarm horn will sound 3 times within 10 seconds).
8: step in vehicle and switch ignition OFF.
I am having trouble getting In the car to beep when I put a lock on the new fab it will beep when I hold the key in the drivers door in the unlocked position for 15 seconds three times when I let it go to neutral I try to push the unlock button on the remote but nothing happens
10 years in between previous posts, so you might be better of to ask in the MK3 forum. I've never had an MK3 so I have no idea what works for older generations.
On the B5.5 Passat I had I used exactly the method @tdawg21 posted back in 2009.
If you have an MK6, then I can give you the procedure as outlined in the MANUAL. What's your pleasure?
