Please help. I have a 2007 Beetle with only (1) key/remote. The unlock function on the remote has failed and I have found a new one. Is there any way to program the new remote with only one key without going to the dealer? Thanks in advance.
Thanks so much for your help. I have read this article and unless I am missing something you need (2) keys, one for the ignition and a second to manually lock the door. I only have (1) key (blade) so I don't see how to do it unless I am completely dumb.
Ah, OK. Yes, you need to have 2 keys unless you have a VCDS tool. VCDS will cost more than 1 hour labor at dealer but tell them you only want to program a remote, not the whole thing and tell them 1/2 hour labor max. Seriously, it takes 5 minutes so if they want more than 1/2 hour, shop around for another dealer. Your profile location says USA, there should be plenty of dealers there
