Hello.
I have a 2002 VW jetta. I had bought a new key case on ebay and swapped out the shaft and circuit board. It would not start the car and then I noticed the small cylinder in the old key. Thinking it was metal i tried to pry it out and the "glass shattered".
Luckily it still works fine, but I only have the one key and am afraid it might stop working.

I ordered a new "glass transponder" and now have 1 working key and the new transponder. I dont have the SKC or any way of accessing the ECU. I believe its a Immo3 system and cannot be cloned?

I work at a hardware store with access to 2 programming machines, but Im not sure if it will work without the SKC.

Can anyone provide me with a route as to which I should take?

I have a follow up question.
I have read all the FAQ's about this topic.
There is a 4 digit number written on the owners manual (i figured this was the stereo code) but the stereo does not require a code even when removed and replaced.

If this is the SKC How would I go about trying it to program the new transponder?
I don't want to ruin my new blank transponder chip if this is not the code?
Is the code required to READ the old key or to program the NEW key?


Thanks guys.

Well the modern systems don't need the radio code if the battery is disconnected. You only need it if you fit the radio in another VW.

There is VAG TACHO thats supposed to read the SKC then you will need someone with VCDS to programme the other key. SKC's can be 4, 5 ot 7 digit numbers. ;)
