    Hi all, So sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. Today it worked fine till about 2100 and now it doesn't work. The batteries are about 2 weeks old, any ideas?

    have you tried using the door lock to see if you have the same problem as there may be a fault with your remote key

    you need 2 keys to carry out a reprogram as far as I know if your VW one is the same you maybe able to get a new blade cut and fit your VW remote to the key and program it
