Hello to all,

My fathers Touareg only came with one original key without the original vw code to order a new key. As he lost already a key from a previous car, he don't want to risk it to lose his key now.
I asked the stealer to order a new one and he said that the price would be over 600 euros for 2 keys, as he could not get the original code from the current key... :(

So I searched my own Touareg junkyard and found one with two keys with the vw code. I also have the ignition switch and door lock.
But I'm wondering if I need to do any recoding in the start authorization module (J518) to make the new keys work and if I could do this by myself.
Did anyone tried this?

KR, Bart

You need to be able to download the codes from Germany.

Good auto locksmiths can do this and give you a new key for quite a bit less than a dealer.

Goggle/Bing or ask around

VCDS is no problem, I have one.

Yes maybe I can find someone who can reproduce those keys, but I'm affraid that they will say the same thing as the stealer said...
And as I have all the parts to make it work, It won't cost anything to me. Maybe I'll try this weekend to make it work. But any experience with it would help a lot.

I had a key cut so that I could unlock the Treg if I accidentally left the keys in the car after just unlocking the boot - it relocks automatically about 5 seconds after shutting the boot.

The locksmith said that he could make a replacement key with all the functions just from my original key if I needed that.
