Introduction to VW keys and the immobiliser
Volkswagen cars from M plate upwards use an immobiliser system that prevents the vehicle from starting without the correct key. The immobiliser is deactivated by a small transponder chip that is embedded in the head of the key. Early models use a separate immobiliser box that talk to the cars ECU. Some of the later models use an immobiliser system that is combined with the dashboard clocks. The very latest models have gone back to using a separate immobiliser box.

VW key programming
A unique 4 digit security code is required to program keys to VW cars. VW refer to this as the Secret key Code (SKC). The Volkswagen main dealer stopped giving these codes out a few years back and will not supply this information to any locksmith or even the owner of the vehicle.
Using specialist knowledge and software we are able to extract the code from the vehicle itself and program new keys to your car.
We offer VW remote fob programming and a VW car key replacement service to the general public and motor trade throughout Cornwall.
