From 1995 all VW keys had transponders (or ‘chips’) embedded in the key head, to enhance security (prevent the vehicle being ‘hot wired’). The type of transponder first used by VW from 1995 to 1998 was a philips-fixed code type 33, widely known in the industry as a T5 chip.
Transponder keys were employed because only when the vehicle receives a certain unique code from the transponder inside the key will it be allowed to start.
IF YOU HAVE A KEY ALREADY (1995-1998) and simply require a spare VW key? VW key programming is very straight forward and takes a matter of minutes with our market leading equipment.
IF YOU HAVE LOST ALL KEYS (1995-1998) then firstly a lock will have to be decoded in order to make a mechanical key which turns the locks. Secondly, vehicle specific ‘logic’ has to be wriiten onto a transponder, inserted into the key head and finally this is introduced to the car’s ecu (computer) memory via plugging into the obd (communication) port with a specialised tester / pin code security. The pin is not known by or available to the owner and can only be extracted from the car using specific equipment. Only then will the car be allowed to start.
FROM 1998 VW enhanced the security by using crypto chips with rolling code’s. These were Megamos type 48 (or T6 chips). Philips type 42 and 44 were also used.
This meant new keys had to be programmed by plugging in specialised equipment into the car and coding the key(s) directly into the vehicle’s memory using a pin number (extracted from the vehicle by ourselves).
REMOTE KEY FOBS: If you’re after a remote central locking fob (even if you don’t have one at present) then we can provide this for you (providing the vehicle came with one originally). Generally from 1998 onwards many VW vehicles came equipped with remote fobs. Ask for details.
In a number of cases, the fobs are the only option as they not only activate the central locking, but also turn the alarm on and off.
KEYS LOCKED INSIDE? Amongst other ways of this happening, many cars will self-lock if left unlocked (often after just a minute!) as a security measure. Using non-destructive techniques we can get into your vehicle and get you up and running again, even outside office hours! Call us immediately.
BROKEN KEYS / KEY BROKE IN LOCK? Key extraction service available. Don’t stress, help is only a phone call away. Even when keys are badly broken / worn down, solutions are at hand.
STOLEN KEYS: Had a key, or your only key stolen? If one’s gone missing or you’re unsure if someone else may have a copy then we can get this key deactivated from the vehicles memory , ensuring YOUR CAR STAYS IN YOUR HANDS! Lock changes or even re-coding existing locks where possible are also services we provide on site.
