A time has gone on, VW has updated its immobiliser system alongside every other manufacturer, to provide your car with more than four different security systems. The basics of immobiliser systems was to have a chip inside the key, but from there technology has developed many different ways of encrypting the data between the key, car remote key and receiver inside the car in order to make it far more effective.

What Is There To Know About Volkswagen 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 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.

How Do Volkswagen Keys Work?
It’s been a long time since getting a new set of car keys was as simple as getting them cut. Volkswagen 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 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 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 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.
