Hello,

ive been advised that i need the services of a vagcom software owner, [:D]why?

Problem;[:(]

delocked the car due to smashed door lock barrel, now cant unlock the car unless i climb throu boot; very embarrasing in supermarket/ town centre carpark

Brought a BRAND NEW 2 button remote keyfob already got the blade cut to fit ignition so car starts but cuts out using it on the standard key.

Im based in north cambridgeshire, dont mind travelling 60miles to get it sorted for a price.

please help,

thanks

yep thats all done through vag com you will need your secret key code so i believe you will need someone with another program to retrieve that.

well i got a chap off ebay to cut the blade all he required was a decent picture of the key, do u think he might have the 4 digit security code? or would i need to call the main dealers up?

thanks

No, the only code he can supply is the key code (for the cutting of the key) so you can then order a new key without the picture. If you want to code the immobiliser transponder then you'll need the cars Secret Key Code (SKC) which is either on a plastic tag supplied with the car when new, or dealers computer linked to HQ, or someone with Vag Tacho to retrieve the code from your car.

Dealers can be gits. They don't have to do it for you, and as he said if you were buying the key from them then they would be obliged to. Best ask someone with Vag Tacho if they can do it for a few beers. If you can find a dealer willing to do it then they could well charge you an hours labour, £70 upwards.
