Excellent customer service
Very pleased with the service. I arrived early but they were able to start work immediately and finished the job quickly. The full functionality of the new key was demonstrated (each button, the keyless aspect, the physical key aspect) so I left fully confident that a good job had been done. The price quoted was better than I was offered at my normal dealership. All in all, highly recommended!

Richard Ruffell
Would have been a 5 if my emails had not gone into your spam and meant I did not get a reply for 5 days. Easy for you to sort out. Otherwise all very good, quote was clear, appointment quick and arrived on time and did good job.
Mr Mike Cox
My car is an Infiniti imported from Dubai and the main U.K. dealer was unable to programme a second key. The radio frequency used on an import is different from a domestic supplied car. Car key Solutions were able to source a key and programme to my car in a couple of days. the engineer did the job in half an hour and took me through everything to make sure the key worked correctly. I can thoroughly recommend Car Key Solutions.

Don’t leave it too late, and have your car key repaired or replaced by our expert team today!

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?

Lost Or Broken BMW Car Key Replacement

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?
