Hello,
I've added several key fobs to cars between 2009-2014, mostly Jettas. I typically have programmed an extra key fob like the following youtube video, in the adaptation section of either 9, 35 or 46:

I'm trying to do the same thing on a 2015 Golf, and it looks different and I can't find the Remote control section of the adaptation section in the Central Locking (9) area. The adaptation section itself looks different now, too, is it a new version of the VCDS software?

Any ideas of how to make this one work?

Thanks

Is this true even in a "basic" car without any Kessy?

as far as I know - yes
because ODIS learn that automaticly while key learn
no need any extra procedure after key re-learn , just leran to cluster and key / remote add automatic

Sorry, I don't understand the terminology (MQB, ODIS, BCM). I'm not trying to program a key itself, just an extra key fob for the remote lock/unlock functions only. Is this not possible in VCDS for the 2015 Golf?
Thanks

Sorry yes it is. You need to open Module 09 BCM (Body Control Module) and select security access. Type in code 31347 and then do it.

In the search box type in remote and then click on the drop down options and select remote control adaptation.

Under channel "01", the Stored value field should show the number of remotes your car currently has, eg 2,3,6.
In the New value field, enter 1 (if your car has one keyfob, 2 if there are two keyfobs, etc)
Press Test and then press the unlock button on the keyfob(s).
You have about 10-15 seconds to complete this step. If the keyfob registers, you'll get an acknowledgement signal as the indicators flash. If it fails then repeat the steps.

Hope this helps

P.S don't worry about the acronyms, you'll pick them up!

When they are bold, green, and have a broken underline, hover your cursor over them. ;)

I have 2015 Q5. Is an immo tool required to program a new remote/key? I have one working remote/key and I would like to have a spare. If so, is it possible (and reasonable) to buy an immo tool?
