    HELP with 2014 Scirocco - Key fobs not working

    Has anyone had any trouble with their Scirocco's key fob not working?
    I've got a 2014 VW Scirocco and one of the head lights was not working so we checked and removed the fuses on the drivers side. The car was also put onto a Snap-on diagnostic computer but since this neither key remotes open the car.
    Could either of these have caused the keys not to work? We've tried removing the battery but no luck and we have tried to resynchronise the keys but this hasn't worked either. Both keys have been tested and batteries replaced and no issues with them. Any ideas?

    You may have cleared the key adaptations, you need a VAG specific diagnostic system to read apt, this is a common problem with genetic systems, they can get you into trouble, even specific system such as VCDS warn you certain actions are not safe

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? 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.
