Absolutely brilliant service. A very nice technician came and was able to locate and resolve an issue with my car's ignition system which was not straight forward at all. Highly recommend and would definitely use again if needed.
Helped me out today and repaired my ingintion barrel and key fob repair and the price is reasonable when compared to main dealers and other audi experts. The added bonus they come to you and carry the parts.😊
Mrs Linda Rooney
I upgraded from what I originally quoted, and the engineer was very polite and helpful. Keys cut and I tested them to make sure they were working....perfect The whole job was completed quickly and efficiently Very pleased with your company, and would definitely recommend you.g
Very well pleased came when they said and done very difficult job as one fool had already stuck a probe in it Excellent work
Mr. Calyton Chettiar
Excellent on-time professional service. They responded immediately after receiving my inquiry. The technician was professional and courteous and arrived on time and completed the work as quickly as possible. Well done, I will recommend them anytime.
I needed a key for Ford Fiesta. Having read reviews, I contacted them. A technician called at home but after spending over two hours could not get it programmed. They promised to send another technician with different instrument the next day. He came as promised and got it sorted. We had an error message afterwards and on contacting them I was asked to take the car to their workshop as it could not be sorted with home visit. Again, they sorted as promised.Overall, I was very pleased with their service. Each time they turned up when promised, kept in touch and sorted any problems without hesitation. Very professional outlook, very polite and informative. At less than half the cost at main dealer, I would certainly use them again but hope never to have to.

I thought getting a spare car key for a modern car would be very difficult. So I contacted car key solutions and it was done the same day. Communication was excellent and the mobile technician was very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely would recommend them.
Our car key broke away from its casing on Saturday. We managed to get another key cut, but it would only open the drivers door & to start the car. We decided that we needed TWO working keys & fobs so, we looked on line & came up with "Car key solutions" - very polite on the phone, explained our options & costs, the best part was that they could come TODAY and sort us out. The gentleman came in a fully-equipped clean & tidy van; sorted out our old key and prepared a new key very quickly, tidily, efficiently, politely. He was brilliant!!! I have actually added the Company's name & numbers to my phone, and will happily recommend the Company to anyone having Car Key Problems!# THANK YOU!!! EXCELLENT!!!
Job done quickly and thoroughly and a great price.

Excellent service - start to finish. The engineer, Sebastian, was superb. He turned up on time - in fact was early but called to ask if this was OK, it suited me perfectly, he was extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable, with a wicked sense of humour! He fixed my old key as well - the remote had stopped working - so I now have this as a spare. Before he left, he explained everything for me and tested everything fully.
Service was amazing from start to finish. Nick the call handler that booked me in was friendly and helpful. He accommodated us at Short notice even during a busy period for the company.Engineer arrived with perfect timing, he was lovely, friendly and informative.

Wendy Pallatt
Both key fobs for my car had broken, and was unable to lock my car. I phoned Car Key Solutions on the Sunday and they came out today and within 30 mins both keys done. A little pricey, but if I had purchased online and then had to have them reprogrammed, there wouldn't have been a lot of difference. Very good service. THank you
Mr Collin Caines

Mr George Abbott
Engineer arrived at agreed time less than 2 hours after booking. Key was cut, programmed and demonstrated fully functional in 45 mins. Engineer was polite and professional. Very pleased with the service provided by Car Key Solutions.
Super fast service. My old & warnout black remote key fob for my 2004 Mercedes E class estate stopped working when i purchased a new case off ebay and swapped the parts. Called Mercedes dealer who said it would take over a week to replace. I then called Carkeysolutions. They sent an engineer the same evening who made a new chromed key fob and emergency key, within an hour. They were polite, fast & efficient. Great service and cheaper than the dealer.

What Is There To Know About Volkswagen Car Keys?

  • Keys for Volkswagen models made during or after 1995 will be fitted with an immobiliser which stops your car from being started by anything other than the right key. If you find your Volkswagen shutting off quickly after you try to start it then the immobiliser system might be broken
  • New Volkswagen keys need to be reprogrammed before you can use them with your car.
  • Most Volkswagen keys that are sold on auction websites or in shops that don’t specialise in car key repair and replacement have a high probability of not working.
  • Buying replacement car keys from Volkswagen dealers can be expensive and may require you to wait for up to 10 days to order or receive your new Volkswagen keys. To replace your Volkswagen keys we will go right to you and cut and programme your new car key while you wait.
  • Most dealers will give two sets of keys with your Volkswagen upon your purchase, which a lot of people find handy if they ever lose one. However, if you buy a second hand Volkswagen car or don’t buy directly from a Volkswagen dealership you may only get one key. We recommend that you get a spare set of Volkswagen keys cut and programmed to save you time and money if your original keys are damaged or lost.

What Are The Four Functions Of A Volkswagen Car Key?

Car keys are far more comprehensive than you may think, and can integrate from one to four of the functions below:

  • Mechanical function – This will open the car from the door barrel and also start the engine. Keys like this were used with older vehicles up to the year 2000.
  • Immobiliser Function – These keys began to be used from early 2000, and have developed into more and more comprehensive systems.
  • Remote Central Locking – This is a convenience feature which was created to enable the locking and unlocking of the vehicle at the press of a button.
  • Keyless Function – This enables locking, unlocking, starting and switching off the engine simply by pressing buttons within the car. The only condition is that the programmed key for the same vehicle must be within close proximity.

What Volkswagen Car Key Services Do We Provide?

If you’ve dropped your Volkswagen car keys somewhere or need a new set in a hurry, we’re here to help. We can provide you with a brand new set of Volkswagen car keys from almost any location. We’ll be there as soon as we can, so you can forget about an expensive tow or a long wait for a new set.


Car Key Duplication

It’s always handy to have a spare set of car keys. You’ll need a second Volkswagen key if you’re sharing your car and having a backup key will keep you out of trouble if your first key gets lost or broken. We can make Volkswagen duplicate keys quickly, so you can be better prepared in the future.


Car Key Programming

Programming a key is a delicate matter that only a professional can do properly. Volkswagen keys have a unique 4 digit code that programmes them to your car and we know exactly how to find that code and properly programme your new keys. If the transponder chip in your Volkswagen key becomes de-synchronised we can also resync it with no hassle at all and get you and your Volkswagen back on the road in no time.


Car Opening

Locking your keys in the car can feel like the end of the world. Thankfully, our services include opening your car if you happen to be locked out. Our expert locksmiths can get you back into your car quickly and they won’t leave a scratch.


Car Key Repair

Sometimes it’s easier to fix a broken or damaged key than get it completely. If your Volkswagen car key is chipped, cracked, snapped or maybe just worn out, our skilled technicians can get fixed in no time at all. You can bring it to our base in London or you could call us and we’ll bring the tools to you and fix it then and there.


Car Lock Repair/Ignition Barrel Repair

It’s not just keys we repair; we also repair locks. You may find that the lock or the ignition barrel was the source of the problem instead of your car key, in which case our technicians can fix it for a fraction of the price that most garages charge. We use all of the latest equipment and technology to get the job done efficiently and quickly.

How Do Volkswagen Car Keys Work?

It’s been a long time since getting a new set of car keys was as simple as getting them cut. Volkswagen car keys are advanced pieces of technology with special instalments that stop other people from using or stealing your car. To prevent car theft, all Volkswagen cars that were produced after 1995 were made with an immobiliser system installed inside of the car and a special transponder chip in their key. The immobiliser effectively prevents the engine from starting if it doesn’t detect the right transponder chip. If the immobiliser doesn’t recognise the transponder chip in the car key the engine will immediately shut off or not start at all. With this system in place, no one will be able to duplicate your key or be able to ‘hotwire’ your car, providing you and your Volkswagen car with extra security. Depending on the model you own, the immobiliser will either be connected directly to the ECU (Engine Control Unit) or it will be integrated with the dashboard clock. Thanks to this immobiliser system, the only person that should be able to drive your Volkswagen is you.

Another interesting technological development in Volkswagen keys is the security code. Each Volkswagen car has a special 4 digit security code. To programme a key to your Volkswagen car you would need to know this special code. So, only a Volkswagen dealer that knows your car’s unique code or a professional that can extract the code from your car will be able to programme a new key.

These systems are the main reason why you should avoid buying car keys from auction websites or from sellers that don’t specialise in key repair and replacement. More than likely, any type of key that you buy from an unlicensed seller will not work in your Volkswagen, so you should always refer to a professional to get replacement car keys. These systems are also the reason why you may find getting a replacement Volkswagen car key expensive. Reprogramming a key and fitting the transponder chip requires professional knowledge, time and the proper equipment. If you go to a dealer to get your new Volkswagen car key you may find yourself waiting quite some time to receive your new key and it will be expensive. However, at Car Keys Solutions you’ll find our Volkswagen car key replacement and repair services to be faster and more convenient than anywhere else and you’ll get better value for your money. We have the expert knowledge and equipment to get your Volkswagen keys repaired and replaced in no time at all and you won’t have to pay for a tow, either. Instead of coming to us, we’ll come to you and fix or replace your Volkswagen car keys on the spot while you wait. In no time at all you can be behind the wheel and on your way with a brand new Volkswagen key.

Which Volkswagen Models’ Car Keys Do We Repair?
