    i need the SKC to program keys. Which still isn't a problem as i several different bits of kit for VAG that reads the SKC from cars

    Next time your in the Birmingham area id be interested in getting it done. I think i saw on one of the other threads you can supply the keys too. How much would it be all in or just to get it coded and maybe removing a lost keys transponder? cheeers

    Thanks for doing my key at the weekend and thanks for helping me out with the other problem, proper good job :)

    One question, on the olk fob it opens all doors at the same time, with the new one it's selective opening (one press for drivers door, two presses to open all doors) I presume I'll have to use VCDS with this new fob to re-select the option to open all doors at once?

    Cheers.

    Yeh just have a play with vcds. Normally selective locking is set in the comfort module

    That's a function of the convenience/central electronics module not the key itself.

    Dependent on the age of your car it'll be available as a normal adaption or a long coding alteration.

    It's just that with the original key it opens all doors, with the new key it opens the drivers with one click and two clicks for all doors. Also with the new jey i
    the car must be turned off and the key removed to open the boot, the old key I could leave it running and the boot would open.

    was the old key an aftermarket system? the way the new key works sounds correct. I have to pul my key out of the a3 to operate the locks or boot.

    No it's the original key with the car. I was able to do the same on my old Leon, leave it running, open door then open boot (keeps the baby asleep etc) This new key just won't let me do this, I just don't understand why not.

    It's strange because as it's the car that's coded for selective locking both remotes should do the same. Definitely need to get VCDS plugged in to check it

    that is bizarre, never heard of that before. I've never had a single problem with any of the VAG remotes i've done other than the odd battery not lasting very long. I've easily done 100+ VAG remotes so far this year & god knows how many last year. The majority of which came from the same supplier.

    You getting loads of time wasters on the forum? it's surprising how many people ask for help/advice then when you reply they don't even bother to get back to you
