New Owner of a 2002 Beetle, which I inheri from my father after his passing. Sadly there was no key with it. It was stolen by his former girlfriends’s son. I have been looking for the cheapest way to get the car working again. Ive already got a new ignition in and new FOBs. of course I knew by this point the immobilizer was the main issue. What I am looking for at this point is the easiest way to program the FOBs so I can at least lock the doors of my newly acquired car.

Ah welcome! I love the mk4, wish I'd kept mine. You will need a VAGCOM to program a new key. You may be able to find a shop or a person who'd lend you one if you search the internet. They're pretty expensive. I have an OBDEleven which is a cheap copy, but I'm not sure it does key programming. Good luck! 🤞

Welcome to the forum.


Its nice to see you made an intro on your own. ;)

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

Keithuk unfortunately deleted my response, but I'll PM this info to you as well: to program a new fob, you will most likely need a VAG-COM. I've seen other methods mentioned online, though none has ever worked for me. This thread has some info you might try out: https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/402712/new+key+fob+programing
