First time poster - please be nice! :o
I bought a used 2000 New Beetle hatchback and the trunk opened with switch and key when I first bought it. Got it home and went to get into trunk and no luck.
I do not have the FOB part to my switchblade key, just the key itself and the valet key.
I have two New Beetles in my life, both 2002 TDi
One of them has the following oddity (as I see it) and is a Danish vehicle.
With both doors and the boot (trunk) locked and the car alarmed I can open the boot with the remote control, but when it does this it also opens the passenger door too...
