    2006 VW Jetta TDI 1.9 BRM 5 speed manual
    Meriden CT
    I just bought a 2006 jetta tdi brm 5 speed manual with a 146k on it.
    The seller only had one key and the keyless entry fob does not work.
    I tried replacing the batteries but it still does not work.
    I had seen a video showing how to reprogram them with 1 key in the ignition and 1 in the door lock but I only have the 1 key.
    Is my only option going to the stealer?
    I have not been able to convince my self on spending $200+ on a vcds yet especially when I have a new clutch and timing belt planed in the near future.

    Dealer will charge you 1 hour, or about 130+ tax. VCDS seems like a good buy compared to that. Keep in mind that if you wish to get a new key you also need to program the immobilzer, see the mk5 key FAQ for detailed steps.
