I am new here, as well. I drive a 2001 Beetle TDI with a busted key. I have the remote control and the metal "key" part separate because the switchblade holder broke. It's a pain because I have to hold the remote which has the rfd chip in it in the same hand I'm trying to turn the metal part with. Nobody's stealing a 10 year old Beetle with over 200k miles on it so I really don't need the immobilizer. Hoping to find help here with keys, remotes, and immobilizers in general. Thanks!
