SIDEWINDER KEYS for Volkswagen cars

Some people have inquired about the performance rating of my services.

I do not participate in social media, sorry, no twitter, no facebook. I have 2 demonstration 15 second youtube videos.

I get referals from www.tdiclub.com www.newbeetle.org www.vwvortex.com www.myturbodiesel.com among other websites.

The key service is an avocation within my vocation of VW repair and service. So far as I know, all of my key customers are satisfied, no paypal chargebacks, etc. In the last 2 years, over 500 key transactions (since paypal changed the numbering system). 

I try to provide a service for the 1998 to 2005 cars in order to avoid going to the dealer where there is a lot of misinformation. I can help with remotes on the 2006 to 2010 cars with separate remotes but keys and activation is by dealer only. See your local VW dealer for 2011 to 2015 cars as only they can provide these one piece flip keys with the black emblem.

The information offered here is free, there is no obligation when you inquire. I do not spell out all costs until you at least give me a vin or model year in order to give you the correct information. Keys may look alike, but chips are different from model to year and remotes change from model and year.

Many of my email responses are one line, short and direct. Do not take it personally or as me being gruff, I get a lot of questions, it takes a lot of time to answer them, sorry, no pleasentries in many of my replies. Remember, there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.

I have been making keys since 1983, first for myself, then by pictures sent through the mail through the 80's, then by faxing the picture in the 90's then by digital picture when email and the internet came about. I have made thousands of keys over the internet by picture since the early 2000's. Each key profile has a specific bitmap pattern, keys are not infinite but finite, there are only so many solutions to the patterns.

Nomenclature:

Flip key, something that operates locks

Remote, something that locks and unlocks doors by radio frequency transmission

FOB, a decorative thingy that hangs on your key chain, not a key not a remote

Laser, had nothing to do with making your key

Valet key, only works in the door and ignition, does not fit into any other lock

 

SIDEWINDER KEYS = inner profile HAA

If you own a 2004 to 2010 Touareg, Phaeton, or 2006 to 2014  Volkswagen Beetle, Golf, Jetta, Passat,  Tiguan,  Routan, CC. You will need to see your local Volkswagen Dealer for keys. Keys sold on the internet and ebay may not work with these cars. We can help with the price of keys and remotes. But you will have to visit your VW dealer to have the new key activated. 2010-2014 please see your local VW dealer, the pricing is really not that bad unless you have a "stealership". New keys will turn in the lock but the engine will not start. Making the engine run is a separate function. Only a VW dealer can make your new 2006 to 2014 key start the engine. If you need a hide-a-key or "surfer key" solution, we can help with that, but the key will work all the locks but never start the car. Send scan of your drivers license on top of your title/registration. This is a security precaution for YOU. Keys will only be shipped to the address on the credentials for 2006 and newer VWs. Except Touareg and Phaeton.

Both sides of the key are cut the same, valet keys have the same cut too.
Main keys and flip keys are HAA, the valet key is NAA, that is the difference.
The NAA blade has a wide edge preventing it from entering the other locks.

Take a picture of your key today, it may be your spare someday as I can make a new from that photo.

Email it to yourself. It costs you nothing, it may be priceless one day, for you when you have lost your last key.

After you send your vin and a picture of one side of your key blade (both sides are the same) pointing to the right, you will then receive a list of items and options specific to your Volkswagen. Your order number will be your key cutting code 4 digit number. Nobody else but me or a VW dealer could tell you your key code from a picture or VIN. This is not your skc immo code.
Please do not send mega-pixel pictures, kb is ok. FOCUS is important. A 15 mega-pixel image is worthless if blurry. The image on this page is less than 19000 bytes thats 0.019 kb or 0.000000019 mega-pixel.
Make your choices and an itemized paypal invoice will be sent. Keys are cut and mailed 2 business days after payment is received. You will receive an email from paypal with tracking information when I ship your order with Paypal shipping.

keys/DSC00529.JPG

I have removed hundreds of lock cylinders, this one is from a New Beetle with a date code and key code, very hard to see, center punch dimpled numbers. Code on locks seem to only be found on New Beetles.
101299 is 10 December 1999 (2000 model year), key code 01731

LOST KEYS: If you do not have the key tag with the key code or a picture of your key, you will need to email a digital picture of your drivers license placed on top of your title/registration as a security measure. If you do not want to provide sensitive information like that, the drivers door lock cylinder will need to be removed and sent to me.

The tag below is not a key code number.

keys/key_vin_tag.jpg

Black tag pictured above is a VIN tag, it was attached to the key ring when the car was new so you could determine by vin which keys went to which car on the VW dealers lot. The digits are the last 6 digits of the vin.

Please do not call us on the phone about sidewinder keys.

Send us an email with your vin and if possible an image of your key blade. We really cannot stop what we are doing and answer questions on the phone without that information first. You will receive a reply with prices, and instructions according to your specific car.

. 

Can I really do this?:

The answer is yes, since 2006 making sidewinder keys without one to copy from, using only a picture to determine the key code, providing keys by vin for cars with lost keys. I specialize in Volkswagen keys only.

Since 1982 I have been cutting keys for the older Volkswagens. Customers would leave their car and forget to leave the key. Within minutes, I could make a key and service the car, and charge the customer for the extra key..... they were cheap back then.

Code cutting: Is when you cut the key without a key to physically copy. Copy cut is when the key is present and you use it to copy the pattern to the new key being cut.  Very few people actually have a spare key to send for me to copy. I usually code cut every new key.  By doing this, it does not put your only key at risk of being lost in the mail, twice, on the way here and on the way back to you. 

Immobilizer
Since 2000 All VW vehicles are now equipped with a state of the art electronic Immobilizer anti-theft system. The critical component in this system is a sophisticated electronic anti-theft device—the Immobilizer. The Immobilizer activates when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The Immobilizer interacts with a transmitter and receiver unit (transponder) in the key body (not the remote portion). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, the Immobilizer transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The Immobilizer keeps the ignition, fuel and electric steering systems locked unless a key with the proper code is used to start the vehicle.
The Smart Key
From 2000 to date, even an exact physical duplicate of a key cannot start the vehicle unless the key's transponder and the vehicle's Immobilizer have been coded to each other. A handshake that requires software to complete.
Replacement Keys
Replacing a transponder key can be costly. Coding a replacement key for your vehicle requires the vagTACHO software. This equipment can also be used to disable a key which is lost or stolen by reactivating the remaining keys to the vehicle. Since the absent key is not present, it will not be included in the group of keys that are authorized to start the car.
Key = something that starts the car,
Remote = something that opens the doors.
One has nothing to do with the other. They are separate systems, the parts just clip together.
A "fob" is that decorative thing that hangs on your key ring, not a key, not a remote.
A laser had nothing to do with making your key, it did not cut it, nobody has a laser to cut keys.
The groove is milled on a machine, it just cuts a groove that is not straight = the term sidewinder. 

 


FAQ's

Q: Can I order a cut blade and put it in a new or used flip key?

A: No, the flip has a rfid chip that will only work with the car it came from, only a car without the immo system or immo defeat will this work

Q: Can you provide me with the SKC to program my key?

A: No, only you can do that, the code is in the software of your instrument cluster, the vagTACHO program will extract it and will also activate a new key in your 2000 to 2005 VW golf jetta beetle passat

Q: Can you provide software for 2006 and newer keys, and software for 2000 and newer Audi

A: No, this cloning software is expensive $800 and is not cost effective, see you local VW or Audi dealer to activate new keys

Q: Do I need software to make the remote lock and unlock the doors?

A: for cars up to 2005 No, but your remote must be the correct part for your model, they all look alike. From 2006 up only you vw dealer can do it.

 


Guarantee: Most all keys cut and provided by me work properly. On occasion some keys need adjustments. On rare occasions I make a mistake and cut the key to the wrong code. Keys will be replaced. There are no refunds. We will work through the problem. The purpose is to be successful. Refunds would not be a solution. I have been doing this a long time.

Sidewinder Volkswagen key application 1998 to 2005.5


This guide will be updated as information and applications are verified. Volkswagen does not
have a comprehensive application guide or chart. Nor is their parts application of these remotes complete or specific.

Please understand any remote for that year group of Volkswagen can be matched to any VW in the same group.

This is called matching the remote to the car. This is the 2 key procedure and has nothing to do with the key itself or starting the car.

One remote can be matched to any number of Volkswagens that it is designed to work for. It transmits a digital signal. You teach the car to respond to that unique signal. Have a 2002 Jetta, Passat, Golf and New Beetle, it can open doors on all of them, and if the 4 cars are close together, it can lock and unlock all of them at the same time.

Keys are activated. The car sends a pulse through a coil of wire located around the ignition switch. The chip in the key is excited by the pulse. If the chip has been imprinted with the identity of the car, it will see its reflection and allow the motor to run.

Keys previously activated to a different car cannot be imprinted with a new identity. (write only) so used keys will not work on another VW. Just as the blade has been cut, the chip has been burned. You cannot uncut a key or un-burn the chip. Only the remote portion can be used with another Volkswagen.

 

Most often misunderstood is programming. Programming the button REMOTE portion of the folding key unit is simple and is referred to as matching.


Test: You must be able to lock the drivers door and have the red l.e.d. alarm light next to the lock button blink. If it does not blink, the alarm does not know the door is closed and will not go into matching mode. If it does blink, unlock the door, it should stop blinking you can then proceed. If it does not stop blinking, the door latch is defective, bad micro switches cannot detect the lock or unlock position and the system will not go into matching mode. There is no software procedure or VW dealer that can override this situation. The system is stuck, the latch must be replaced.

You do need 2 keys to make the remote work without using software.

Put one key in the ignition switch, turn ignition on, do not start engine. Close the door,(you are outside of the car with the remote key)  use 2nd key, turn door lock and hold in lock position for 10 seconds. Release key to neutral position. 
Press the unlock button on the remote, wait 2 seconds and press the unlock button again, the turn signal lights will flash (light in the fender will blink).
This indicates your remote matches the car system and is now recognized. Unlock the door with the key, remove the other key from the ignition. Have all keys and remotes in your hand. Close the door. (you are outside the car) Remote should now work.

Remotes DO NOT WORK with the ignition on or if a key is in the ignition switch. They only respond during matching with the ignition on. If you have more than one remote, you must repeat the procedure and REMOVE the key from the ignition each time. Removing the key from the ignition finalizes the procedure.

Some 2005 to 2007 Volkswagens using the H remote, same procedure, but only unlock door with key and don't hold it, then press button once as soon as you unlock the door manually with the key.  Some H and P sufix remotes can only be programmed at the dealer when the key is being activated.

So don't pay someone or a dealer for these instructions in hopes of getting the KEY to function with the car.
Instructions are only for the keyless remote, not the key.



The HAA keys are cut by using your serial number to the car (vin dependent) There is a 4 digit key code, unless you are the original owner or you have the black zip tie tag that was attached to the black valet key,  you will not have the key code.  We use an image of your key to verify the code to be cut. I provide the key code as a courtesy during the ordering process, it is your order number. There are over 6000 cutting codes. It is not the SKC.

Applications contained here-in are for the Volkswagens in North America. Volkswagen has 7 markets worldwide. Due to frequency licensing in different countries the remotes will have other part numbers similar to ones here in the USA. Example, the oval 2 button E and the 3 button F in Europe are G and H. Asia uses A and B. They are not interchangeable between countries.

Here is the short version of keys and systems:

1998-1999 New Beetle: any HAA key works, 3 button remote = 1J0959753F and 1J0959753T, no immobilizer system CONTACT US by clicking here to order a key, please include your vin, also include a picture of the key pointing to the right  You will receive your key cutting code and a price list of keys available for your Beetle.

Starting in 2010 the remote and key are one unit similar to the Phaeton and Touareg

2010.9 to 2010.12 Jetta 5K0837202 ( 3 button)

2011.1 to 2012.5 jetta 5K0837202Q

2012.4 up Jetta 5K0837202ad 3 button

2010.6 up Jetta 5K0837202ae (4 button)

 

note: decimal point refers to month of manufacture 2006.3 means March, 2005.6 means June

Volkswagens security key system is like the old bug with the cart in front of the horse, you program the car to the key, not the key to the car.

Starting in 1998 with the New Beetle and Passat, 1999 with the Golf IV and Jetta IV, the key may have a chip but does not need a chip, and does not need to be activated. The remote has the oval 3 button HLO 1J0 959 753 F (2 button E) . The remote does not have the chrome bar on the end, only the corner swivel loop to attach to a key ring. This remote will not work with 2001 and newer Volkswagens except Passat 98-01.5 without yellow key car light. (see picture below)  1J0959753F original application 11/98 to 04/00 does not have transponder computer chip for 5/99 to 05/01 and newer Some models, the transition date is different, look for the yellow car with the key under it when you turn the ignition on. Picture of 2000 jetta dash, see the yellow car? It only comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition on. Using a key not coded to the car will cause the light to blink and the engine will shut off. New beetle has the light at the top center of the speedometer and looks like the New Beetle outline.

1J0959753T original application 10/00 to 05/01 but will work from 11/98 to 05/01 New Beetle, Golf, Jetta, Passat (original may look like F) 1J0959753AM original application 06/01 to 2005 New Beetle, Golf, Jetta, Passat but will not work on 05/01 and older cars In 2000 model year (around May 1999) the transition take place with immobilizer 1, (immo 1) the addition of a computer chip inside the key portion of the flip key. 2001 is a transition year. The remote changes to the squared buttons but the frequency of the button remote is the same as the older Volkswagens with the oval buttons. This remote will work on the older cars but not the newer cars. HLO 1J0 959 753 T It can be matched but not to the keyless entry of 2002 (May 2001) and newer Volkswagens. It has the newer look with the chrome bar on the end.



Starting late in 2001 to 2005 the squared button remote has a more common part number HLO 1J0 959 753 AM. This remote has a different frequency that works only to Golf IV Jetta IV Passat and New Beetle. It has the chrome bar and a computer chip. Replaced by HLO 1JO959753DC . You will need to use the Vagtacho software sold below or a VW dealer or Automotive Locksmith to activate the key. After the key is cut, it will work in the locks, start the engine, but the engine will shut off as a theft prevention if the engine computer has not been activated to recognize it. The security code can be found under the scratch-off on your key tag that came on the valet key when the car was new. If you have that, you can use Vag-Com or vcds software because you have the security code to enter system 17 or purchase the vagTACHO software from me.

valet key tag

vwkey.com

This key will work in 2000 and older Volkswagens but the 3 button remote will not. It has a different frequency. Staring in 2005.5 the immobilizer III system started with canbus system.  Only a VW dealer can activate these keys. 

Flip Key 1998 to 2005.5: The portion of the key that is the key has a part number. This part number is never advertised because it is missing from the flip portion unlike the remote part. Your VW dealer sells you that part separate from the button remote part. That is why a remote key UNIT is so expensive. The key portion is $50 and the remote button portion is $80 for Passat and Jetta 2005 to 2007 HOL 1JO959753P, HLO 1K0959753H The Touareg 2004 to 2006 HLO 3D0959753T The Phaeton HLO 3DO959753F

If you have a broken key blade, have it copied or code cut and install the blade, back onto your keyless entry unit.
No activation is needed.
If you have a good key blade but the remote is damaged or the flip mechanism cam is broken you can replace the cam key blade holding portion.  Go to the bottom of this page to buy the cam repair kit.
No activation is needed. Separate the remote from the flip key. Pry the emblem off.
Under the emblem is a Phillips screw, remove it. ( I sell replacement cam with pin and emblem) 
The halfs will separate. In the long slot there is a glass pill, looks like a long black grain of rice.
That is the computer chip. Remove the chip from the old flip and install in the new flip. It may be glued in, DO NOT BREAK IT $$$. 
Now the computer will recognize the new flip key as the old flip key. See picture at the bottom of this page.

Don't damage the glass chip, acetone will dissolve the glue, it must soak wet for 2 minutes, break it  $$$ and car will not start. Glass is not affected by acetone. 

All flip keys are Main keys. The key pictured here is a Main key 219R profile HAA.

The all black Valet key 219AK profile NAA is a different blank (aka the mechanics key), it is cut the same but will not enter the glove box or trunk lock. There is a main key that it black 219S but it is the same price as the blue/white emblem key. There is no such thing as a master key for VW. (that would be like the key housekeeping uses in a hotel and the rooms are different cars) Markings on the key, Huff, w3, etc mean nothing, they are not codes. These keys do not have codes marked on them, some of the lock bodies are laser scribed with the 4 digit lock code. Remove the door handle from the outside of the car, code is on body of cylinder housing.

Cabrio uses the key pictured above, there is no flip key application for the Cabrio. You must use the Clarion banjo style remote.

Cabrio 1999 does not have the immo system vin X806131 to X89900 but requires the Siemans chip,  key 3B0 R

Cabrio 2000 has the immo system vin Y800001 to Y804287  key 6N0 H   system wfs2

Cabrio 2001 has the immo system vin Y804288 to 2002 models key 6N0 P  system wfs3

1998-2002 Cabrio: HAA key work, immobilizer system CONTACT US by clicking here to order a key, please include your vin, also include a picture of the key pointing to the right  You will receive your key cutting code and a price list of keys available for your Cabrio. Dealer visit needed.

1998.5 to 2003 Eurovan AH Key, 2 button remote 7D0959753D , immobilizer system CONTACT US by clicking here to order a key, please include your vin, also include a picture of the key pointing to the right  You will receive a price list of keys available for your Eurovan. Dealer visit needed.

Even the regular key has a chip. In order to remove the chip for placement in defeating the immo system you may have to apply drops of acetone on the chip to dissolve the glue holding it in place. A few drops over 5 minutes will dissolve the glue. Then you can remove it without damage. The glass chip still in the key is from a Golf Jetta or Passat, the monolith chip on the right is from a Cabrio or Eurovan.

vw audi vagtacho immo II skc code reader 1999 to 2004  $59.99 free shipping in the USA

vagTACHO cable and program 2.5 disc for retrieving your SKC and activating new keys 2000 to 2005 New Beetle, Golf, Jetta, Passat through the OBD engine check light plug.
cable does not work with other programs, program disc does not work with other cables
You cannot return this software. Please email for international shipping to Canada $7 and worldwide tbd.

The purpose of using the vagTACHO software is to obtain your SKC (pin) to allow access to the key system in your cars OBD system. Not even your VW dealer cannot provide this information. Knowing the SKC also allows you to perform an emergency start with a key that has not been activated. So, if you have a hide-a-key that will not start the car, and you have lost the key to the car, on a trip, at the beach, etc. Using the code, you can start the car and be on your way. So paying the dealer to activate your 2000 to 2005 key is truly money down the drain.

Key logic

I am not here to shove the sale of extra keys down your throat, however the loss of the last or only key to your car will cost you dearly in inconvenience and money. Immobilizer cars may have to be towed to a VW dealer in order to activate a new key if you do not know your skc or have a mobile locksmith who can activate a new key in the field. It is not easy to find someone who can cut the sidewinder key. Do not assume that it can be done just anywhere. (no retail store cuts these keys) Some VW dealers will only cut the keys they sell.

Your car came with 2 flip keys and a valet function key. You can have up to 4 working keys that will start immobilizer cars. Non immo cars can have any number of keys but only 4 functioning remotes.

Any combination of flip, valet, regular main keys are possible for the 1998 to 2004 cars. The 2005 to 2010 cars can only have flip keys and valet keys.

If you have only a badly worn flip key with a loose blade and dead remote. Make that your spare and keep it in the house somewhere. Purchase 2 or 3 new keys and put them into service. Should you part with the car for some reason (wrecked it) the remote portion can be used in another Volkswagen of the same era or resold for another VW owner to use.

Regular main keys and valet keys are worthless to anyone other than the owner of the car they go to. They cannot be reused. Once they are cut, they will only work for that car. The blade cannot be replaced.

Volkswagen Flip Key Disassembley

In order to replace the battery in your Volkswagen flip key you first need to disassemble your key. This takes a bit more force than most people are willing to do, for fear of breaking it. But it won't break.
Here is how to replace the battery on the square button flip key with red led from 2000 to 20010, and how to fix the silver bar that your keychain attaches to.

Grab the flip unit with a firm grip on each end and pull very hard. Do not do this with oval button flip, use a screwdriver in the slot on the logo side and twist, to separate it.

 

DSC00007.jpg image by vwkey
The key will separate into two halfs.
Remote portion has the part number and manufature date
example: 1J0959753AM  34/04 = week 34 of 2004

 

DSC00008.jpg image by vwkey
Use the key blade to carefully pry the halfs apart in the recess if you cannot actually separate by pulling alone

This is the remote slightly separated so you can see where the seam is.

Now for the battery removal.
Chrome bar is part of the battery cover.
If you need a new chrome bar, purchase one above.

The unmarked side faces up. Numbers down
