    ok so i got a new shell for my key this morning changed everything over including the blade but i kept the bottom half as the insides wouldn't come out , tried to unlock the car nothing happened so i put it in the ignition and turned it half way held down the unlock button and the alarm went off , so i took the key out and pressed unlock the remote works but the key won't turn the immobiliser off so my car won't start and the little yellow light keeps flashing on the dash ,

    any ideas ? really need to sort this out as i got to travel to london this friday

    O yeah be very careful removeing it, if it cracks of if it glass and brakes that will proberly be it. try a sharp blade around the glue and pry gentley.

    Hope this is some help to you.

    You've either not transferred the IMMO chip, or you've broken it in the process of moving it.

    Transponder is the brown/green thing in this photo:

    you sure you havent tried taking it out there not hard to damage. the chip works by proximity so it should be fine it does'nt use power

    meh I guess I just freaked out and wanted it sorted ( love the car to bits ) but I guess I'll be investing in a vag com looked on eBay and they had some cheap leads anyone know wich would be the best to get ?

    I've also heard u can change settings on ure car such as the doors lock at 10mph etc are things like this relatively easy to do ?

    Yeap theres auto locks . windows up n down on lock n unlock through the remote. theres a fair bit you can do on VCDS ive a ebay lead but its **** !!!! id get one from NHN on here a litttle bit cheaper than ross tech i think . If your planning on doing work yourself and services and saving bucks on your fault finding id get one . im saving up for it .
