What to do when your Volkswagen key is lost:

  • First, make sure you don’t have a spare key. Many times, we put a key somewhere just for this day when we will lose our key and forget about it
  • In addition, in case you decided to call an automotive locksmith for Volkswagen cars, remember to provide the exact year, make and model, e.g. “I lost my 2012 Volkswagen Jetta car keys, I lost my 2009 Volkswagen Golf transponder key, I lost my 2008 Volkswagen Beetle laser cut key” etc.
  • Furthermore, always ask if the key needs to be programmed, i.e. Lost 2016 Volkswagen Passat key fob or 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan laser cut key needs to be programmed, while 1996 Volkswagen E-Golf doesn’t.
  • In addition, in case you need a new ignition, make sure you tried getting a new key first. Changing the ignition for Volkswagen cars is more expensive and it will result in a different key for the doors and ignition.
  • Moreover, if you decided to call the dealer to get a replacement Volkswagen key, ask if you can pick up the new key, or should tow the car there.
  • In cases where the key won’t turn in the ignition, mention if this is something that just happened the first time or is it an ongoing problem.
  • Finally, before calling an automotive locksmith or towing the car to the dealer, make sure you have all the necessary documents, i.e. title, ID, registration and VIN of the car.

FAQ Lost Volkswagen Key:

 

Q: Volkswagen key replacement cost – How much does it cost to replace Volkswagen key without the original? What is the average price?

Volkswagen Key replacement Cost - Price Depends On a Few Factors

Volkswagen Key replacement Cost – Price Depends On a Few Factors

A: In short, to replace a Volkswagen key usually cost between $200-$500. It depends on a few factors:

  1. Type of key
  2. The year manufactured
  3. Time of day & your location
  4. Where you get a key replacement (Dealer, automotive locksmith, online, etc)
  5. Availability of code to cut a new key
  6. Original ignition or not

The type of key you had and the year the car was manufactured are maybe the most important factors.(chip, intelligent fob, “push to start”, remote, regular “non-transponder” key). The newer the car is, the better security features the key had and therefore you can expect to pay more than $250 for a replacement key. Choose your Volkswagen model(from the drop-down menu) and type of key you had for a more accurate price and information.

In addition, it depends on where you get a key replacement. The dealer, automotive locksmith or get it online. Click here to get a more detailed explanation.

The dealer usually charges about 10%-15% less than a locksmith would for the key. However, most chances you will have to tow the car there to program the new key or remote and therefore the total price is usually higher.

Furthermore, consider that if you are looking to have a locksmith to come out and make you a new key outside regular business hours, the price may go up. That is especially relevant for the newer models (2015 and up) as those are equipped with a high-security key systems.

Finally, in case your Volkswagen ignition cylinder was changed before (usually with older cars), that probably means that the code for the key may not be useful and the key will have to be either cut manually by a locksmith or to change the ignition again which in this case the dealer can’t be of help.

Q: How can I know if my VW CC 2014 key had a chip in it? I understand that some keys need to be programmed and some don’t?

A: Generally speaking, cars made after the year of 2000, most chances had a chip in it.

Therefore, if you lost your VW key and the key had a chip in it, it will have to be programmed on site.

In addition, an automotive locksmith for VW keys can do that on-site or the dealer, but the car will have to be towed there.

If your key was a blank metal key, then the key is a non-transponder/ chip key and a VW dealer or an automotive locksmith for VW cars can cut the key without the need to program it.

Fob car key – Fob remote “push to start” car key: Usually looks like some sort of remote. This fob car key has a chip and therefore will need to be programmed.
