    Arrow Vag Tacho Key Programming

    Hi all ,

    I have read that you can get the skc code and program your key with this software and lead . Can anyone tell me the best process for this ?

    Also i have heard about the immo flashing after this is done is there anyway to avoid this ?

    Yeah skc's can be retrieved by key pro's which I personally am weary of, but as long as you enter in vagcom all the correct info then you shouldnt have any issues, any links to the issues you've read somewhere?

    I beleve it can read the SKC. However there doesnt seem to be much info about. There are cables on ebay but ive never got them to work so gave up. Ive also tried vag commander but never got it to connect. I will only buy another cable of ebay if they can show me it working first

    immo light flashing means that the immo is kicking in as the key is not paired to the immobiliser. Ive coded keys to my car with vag com and my SKC (read by a garage in leeds) and never had any problems with the immo light flashing.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on with vag tacho.

    Arrow Hey

    Hi ,

    sorry for late reply ,

    i have seen many people that have got the skc and coded it with this device

    example

    http://www.vwaudiforum.co.uk/forum/s...d.php?p=257424

    Just wondered if anyone used one seems like it works and the key starts the car but some people get the flashing immo ...

    Im not going to read through those threads fully but one of the problems i saw on there was the immo light staying on after programming.

    I had this problem but after an hour or 2 it went out.

    If it flashes it means the key is not recognised by the immo. So either did not code properly or teh transponder in the key is duff.

    I wouldnt worry if oyu get your SKC its hard to mess up as it wont let you login with the incorrect SKC. But dont keep trying as it will lock you out iirc approx 3 times and the lockout time increases each incorrect attempt. Just dont keep trying if it doesnt work.

    but let us know how you get on with tacho if you get a copy

    got mine from "easybid2000" mainly because of their good ratings for the tacho.

    Im not going to do anything in particular as i already have my skc, just if it works it will be a very good tool to have to read skc's for friends and possibly put in new/used clusters in the future, change mileage etc

    If it allows reading and writing of the eeprom does this not mean you can remap yourself if you can get hold of a good map dump?

    Thumbs up hey all

    Right ,

    it can change milage
    also read the code for key then code the key so no use for vag-com this is very easy as long as you follow the simple guide .

    If you need help let me know

    Cheers. wouldnt have any use for the mileage but could be good if getting replacement used clocks.

    Would probably use vag-com to code keys as i trust it more, but definatly good for reading skc.

    Will probably get my copy tomorow or early next week so will have a play then
