Replacement key fob

My wife has managed to lose her key to our '14 TDI Reg. I see they can be purchased all over the interwebs but is there a DYI on how to program a new on on your own or do you have to take it to the dealer?


FYI: Before you chastise me for a questions thats probably been asked 1000 times I cannot search the forums. Keep getting a database error.

To answer your question - replacement key MUST be adapted by a dealer.
RE: searches - possibly increasing your number of posts to a number greater than 5 [or more?] - two word posts are OK and they don't have to make any sense - will make all the features of the site accessible to you. Administrator should chime in if this is not true.

2008 M-B GL 320 CDI (wifes), 2000 Golf GL TDI (sold), 2004 Touareg V10 TDI (acquired 2/2011), 1984 Mitsubishi 4WD Pick Up turbodiesel (beater truck), location - SW Washington St, USA

The VW dealership will be able to obtain a new programmed KESSY fob, along with the appropriately cut emergency key. It will take some time, but it is the only reliable way to get a replacement that will function properly. They will need you VIN, and to sight and confirm your ownership (registration papers), prior to ordering it.
We went through this buying a third (spare) KESSY for ours.

2012 Touareg TDI ("Badger"), Highline with sport and towing pkg., Canyon Grey/Black. Awesome.

1984 Toyota Landcruiser BJ60 ("Huntley"), Blue/Brown, 3B diesel, manual everything, daily driver for the past 27 years and 454,000km. Priceless.

Dog is my co-pilot.

Just go to your dealer. It's not cheap but you'll get the right key that works. Others may appear telling you to do this and try that - don't waste your time and don't delay as Sod's Law might kick in and you can't find the remaining key!!

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
