Default How to program your key fob.

Put one key into the ignition and turn it on. Don't start car.
Using the second key lock the car manually outside.
Press unlock once and wait a couple of seconds.
Then press lock once.
Manually unlock the car and remove the key from the ignition.
Now test your key fob.

Hi Racer002

Do these instructions work for the 2001 Beetle?

The reason I ask is because I just got my car and the dealer didn’t have an extra spare key for me…so he gave me some other VW’s key+FOB and told me to get he key part recut at the VW dealership and to reprogram the FOB part myself to save $$$.

And if your instructions do work in my case, can you please clarify which key you are referring to in your instructions? (i.e. which key goes into the ignition, the original or the spare?)

Thanks so much for you help!

In terms of this things,i used to go to a dealer.They know more on how to do it exactly.I tried to search for an instruction but can't find the right one so i decided to let the dealer do it for me.

You have to take the key to a local dealership that has Nissan's. They will give you a quote on how much it will cost. Usually these are pricey, but in some incidents they are not. I work at a salvage yard and many of the older vehicles are STILL expensive. The fob itself I KNOW has to be programmed unless its a system you have had installed yourself.

When I had to get 2nd key for my S60, I got one from RUFE and then my local dealer had to code it to the car.Im told that its important to get the bar code that comes with the key as thats what they use to get the software to read the key into the car as opposed to receiving the signal fromt the fob.SO the answer is as far as Im told its a main dealer job..
