    maybe you overwrote the first key with the second and vice versa?

    I think you need to select the location its going to insert the key into?

    I'd use vagtacho to get the SKC, then use vagcom to program.

    did you have any instructions for doing it with vag tacho?
    did you program one then start all over again with second as that would overwrite first key

    never tried using it to code as i thought vag com was safer option but think it would need to be full version

    Here is a link to vag tacho pdf http://www.bestgsm.sk/freesw/VAG_TACH_USB.pdf which im sure you've seen
    on the vagcom http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/car...ng-4digit.html it says to erase old keys then enter total number of keys

    In vag tacho i think you put original key in which it reprograms then ign off put other key in turn on then wait 5 secs and it should program?
    wil try again tomorrow as she's in work today with the car and I will be too drunk tonight

    Update!
    Just programmed both keys again with vag tacho now both keys not flashing on dash.
    When said to turn off ignition and swap keys done it very quickly this time so maybe you have 5-10 seconds to do it?
    hopefully it will keep working
