Default Valet Key Programming

I have a 2000 Jetta TDI and I just ordered a regular valet key from a local dealer for $59.00. Have anyone tried the following steps ( I found them on ehow.com) to program a valet key (no fob)?

Get into your vehicle. Insert your valet key into the ignition and turn the key as far as you can in the "On" position without cranking the engine.

Get out of the car and close the door behind you, leaving the valet key in the ignition. Place your regular car key in the driver's door and turn the key to lock the car manually.

Remove the key from the driver's door. Push the "Unlock" button on your key fob twice.

Enter your car, turn the valet key to the "Off" position and remove it from the ignition. Your valet key is now programmed.

thanks!

Are you going to let us know if it works? I was quoted hundreds more for this at the stealership.

This worked for resetting a remote key that I thought was FUBAR. I doubt it will make the car recognize the immobilizer chip in the valet key.

I second the above.. the technique you refer to is for programming a new fob using an already working valet key. It does work though..

I have two key fobs but no Valet key. One fob works and the other does not (red light lights up but will not unlock doors or trunk). Will the above technique reprogram my dumb remote?

The procedure you post here is to reprogram remote . Valet key don't have remote.
What do you trying top reprogram, Remote on other key or Immobilizer?
If you want to reprogram immobilizer then info is here:

Important Note: Unless you ALREADY have the SKC information for your vehicle and components then you will NOT be able to do any of the Immobilizer functions.
