    New Owner - First Question - Keys

    Hi,

    Just received my new (to me) 2011 Touareg 3.0 V6 TDI. My first auto-box and "big" engine. Thought I would have a last "hurrah" before we all go electric!

    First off - hello to all fellow forum members.

    So - bought my Touareg with a few cosmetic issues which I bartered down for. Missing collapsible spare wheel, Broken LH Front Foglight, Cracked NS Outer Rear Light Cluster Plastic plus a few paint blemishes and wheel allow bubbling - all known about and budgeted for.

    However, the seller was also only selling it with one key - which I accepted as well - although now I am kinda nervous. What has made me even more nervous was when I read the handbook. Apparently, the central locking can lock-out and the only solution is to use blade key embedded in the main smart key to get into the car and get the smart key into the ignition to "reset" it. However, when I looked for this blade key, just the stub of it remains - Grrr!

    So now getting an additional key has suddenly got very important indeed. Already done some research and getting new keys from the ******** is extortionate. Is there any other way to get a new smart key coded for the car and a new blade key cut without taking the ******* route?

    Cheers,
    Harry.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    New keys can only be ordered and programmed with a VW dealer who has access the VW online computer.

    Hi pal,
    I cant really help with key supply and coding. My approach would be to ask at independent garages in your area which locksmiths they would use in these situations. They’ll soon tell you if it’s dealer only...somehow I doubt it. It may be a case of getting hold of a used key and reprogramming the electronic side and cuttin and fitting a new blade.

    My main concern would be to erase pairing of the missing key fron the cars security system as you probably have no idea who has the other key!

    Thanks GolfRLine,

    Useful info. Yeah - I will ask around. Currently on contract and being bounced around the country but as soon as we settle in a place for a while (probably Birmingham for a month) I'll ask the forum for any good independent garages in the area. Not too concerned about the missing key as the gut I bought it off seemed reasonably trustworthy and he said straight off that he had just plain lost it. (However, he didn't mention that he had also broken the blade key, so...)

    My main concern is how an independent locksmith can cut the new blade key when he has no template to work from? There's only a stub left on the blade I have and, of course, the main "key" doesn't have a blade.

    Anyway, I'll keep the post updated with what I find out.

    Do you have keyless entry then?
    If you want a new plastic emergency key I can't imagine it would cost a fortune from the main dealer. As far as I know keys can be cut using the key number on record. If an independent vehicle locksmith can access that then great but otherwise the task will be getting the info from the dealer!

    A new emergency key is part number 7P6 837 216 B INB and costs £75.89 inc VAT, it is a vehicle intelligent part and has to be special ordered using the vehicles VIN and takes around a week to arrive, then it has to be coded in to the immobiliser which is around £100.

Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    We may be talking about different keys here. How and why would you code a plastic key blade that only opens the door and glove box

    You may be right, I have very little contact with these plastic keys but I thought you could start the car with it, I will have to try one one day. The key number and price are correct.
