  • All Volkswagen car keys made after the M-registration (that is, manufactured after 1995) contain a small glass chip hidden in the plastic part of key called a “transponder chip”. The Chip is made of clear plastic glass & must be programmed correctly to allow any Volkswagen vehicle to start.
  • Transponder chips are buried in the keys of all modern Volkswagen Car Keys. This applies to both modern Volkswagen “remote car keys” and normal Volkswagen keys without remote central locking buttons.

VW Car Key Specialists – Duplicating or Replacing Keys

Duplicating or Replacing a Volkswagen key is a three-stage process:

Step 1: A new key blade (either a traditional car key or a laser remote control flip key) must be cut accurately to unlock the doors and fit the ignition.

Step 2: The transponder chip inside the replacement Car Key must be electronically “paired” to your VW vehicle so the ECU recognizes it when the key turns in the ignition

Step 3: The remote fob (if opted for one) needs to be synced to the vehicle as well in order for the central locking to work.
