Hey Guys! so i have a used 2000 new beetle . (i love it) but it only has one key . I had to change the batteries in the remote but now i dont think i can reprogram it. i've read a couple blogs that said it can be programmed by removing the lock cylinder and all but my car doesnt go into pairing mode.

has anyone tried programming with one key??

Takes two people. But removing the cylinder, using the screw driver trick (door closed, one person sits in the drivers seat with the key in the ignition---other person outside turning the screw driver. Should work fine. The car won't know if your FOB is at the door lock, or sitting in your ignition cylinder.

We did ours this way. Just need the procedure done in the correct steps.

You can also find someone with VAG-COM/VCDS. That will program single keys like a charm.

HEY GUYS! So i got my remote to program . Turns out my "helper" put the batteries in the remote the wrong way which prevented the key from working. how silly. Thanks for the suggestions though!
