How do you program a 2003 passat volkswagen key

Answers :

There is no easy way to program these keys without VAG-COM (Volkswagen Audi Group Communication) software. It is possible that a European specialty car parts house or a locksmith may have this software (or a VW enthusiast who uses it to check specialty fault codes and engine diagnostics), but most people are forced to go to a VW or Audi dealer (same technology) to get new keys matched to their VWs. \012
\012When adding a new key, all keys must be recoded at the same time--you can't simply add one to an existing group of keys. A new code is generated that will invalidate the previous codes used by existing keys.\012
\012I have had good luck purchasing key blanks and remote key fobs on eBay for much less than my local dealer would charge, but I then paid the $80 fee to have the dealership match all my keys to the car. My local locksmiths could could copy the physical key, but they couldn't do this final step.\012
\012There are some tricks you can use with older (pre-2000?) VWs to match up keys, but I do not believe that they work with newer VW key technology.
