We've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected, as the Professionals come online at varying times.

try the re-programming procedure as follows - you will however need a 2nd key to do this:

1. Switch Ignition ON and leave the key in the ignition.

2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the key you want to programme

3. Using the remote control press the Unlock button once, and the horn
will sound once.

4. Wait at least 1 second and press the unlock button once to activate the coding
procedure. The remote control will now be programmed and the horn should sound once

NOTE : When performing programming on additional remotes the procedure
is the same, except you press the unlock button 2, 3 or 4 times for the
different remote.

For example : If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice with
a 1 second interval between each press, repeat for 3 and 4 remotes.

5. Switch Ignition OFF.

6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.

7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remotes.

8. The ignition must be switched OFF between programming each remote

Unable to lock the car mechanically with the key I want to programme as there are no locks on the door, only lock using z remote, the passat 06, is the type where the key pushes into the ignition to turn it on
