    2013 8V Spare Key & Navigation Issue

    Key does work in the lock barrel, i can start the car but very oddly it struggles to start with this key and occasionally stalls. It does also throw up a gearbox malfunction when using this additional key. I clear everything via VCDS and use the original key and no issues so it is very strange.
