I just bought a used 03 Jetta Wagon TDI and received only 1 working key with remote
the seller gave me another key and remote but it is from a differnet car (I knew this going in) see picture here
my key is the top one and the non working key is the bottom
I want to program the 2nd remote and also get another switch key for it
First off How do I program the 2nd remote
I found this in another forum....
The chip is in the remote part of your key, not the blade.
To program the remote functions on a new key, get in your car with the car off and the driver side window rolled down.
insert the new key into the ignition
insert your vallet key in the driver side door lock (outside the car)
turn the vallet key towards lock and hold it there
while it is held towards lock, press the unlock button on your new remote for
press it again for 2 seconds
let go and you should hear an alarm honk or something like that. This is from memory so it may not be right. I would recommend searching archives.
Is the above correct? is that for the 03 jetta too?
So I need a second key to put in the door first?
I had an idea, could I take the key (not for my car and fill in the groove with JB Weld and smooth it out and have a locksmith re cut it to my key?
Any other ideas would also be welcome
Thanks in advance Fred
