    Have had problems with my remote since changing the battery 5 weeks ago. Have tried all suggestions on here including new batteries, vag com etc but nothing. Today i tested to see if the key fobs were giving off any power and 1 of them unlocks but nothing else and the other does absolutely nothing! Looks like ill have to buy 2 new keys unless anyone knows of anything else that could work?

    The only thing i can suggest thats a cheap option is to remove the battery's, clean with a tissue as well as the contacts in the key and re fit holding them in the tissue. The battery has a very low voltage /current and even grease from fingers can give a very bad contact. i cant believe both keys have failed at the same time, seems to much of a coincidence.

    its a little odd i agree!! I can only assume i damaged the contacts when i replaced the batteries originally?
