    Vagcom Key FOB Programming

    Hi
    I have been trying to use my Vagcom unit to Program a new Key FOB for my 1998 Beetle TDI. I do not have a working remote only my Valet Key. I have tried to use the procedure which I have found on Youtube which goes into Adaptation and with a key (my Valet key since I do not have a working key FOB) and I am unsuccessful. Can anyone help me with my Key Programming?

    Please post an Auto-Scan for context.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    This is a scan which I ran just before attempting to Program my new key FOB. It shows an '01179 - Incorrect Key Programming
    35-00 - -' line but as I had mentioned in my post I do not have a working Key FOB. I took the Blade out of my ONLY remote (which died recently) and attached it to the New FOB and turned on the Ignition with that. I have a working Valet Key and a working Blade from my old working FOB. I have not used any functions other than Autoscan with my VagCom unit. I simply went to Central Convenience and with the old blade in the Ignition and turned to the on position I went through the Adaptation section of the VagCom menu and picked the 1 key option and proceeded to hold the Open Button on the new Key FOB for 3 seconds etc etc. No joy.

    Been here?
    http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index..._2)#Adaptation

    Specifically, did you clear out old remote matching via channel 0 first?

    -Uwe-
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Yes I forgot to mention that before. Also that was the exact video I followed. I have a follow up question as well. Could I have a faulty Control Module and how would I check for that? Not sure how I hit that Like but it was unintentional.

    OK Should I be able to use the VCDS adaptation procedure to program a FOB if I do not have a working FOB? I do not have a working FOB so I cannot test to see if I have a faulty Control Module. Can someone weigh in to help me with this problem?

    Yes, I can't think of any reason why a working fob should be needed.

    Where did you get the "new" fob?

    OK. You will have to ask my wife about why. I guess it is because she wants it.
    I bought it at:

    https://www.ebay.ca/usr/yourkeysuppl...72.m2749.l2754

    Yes I have checked the battery and it is fine. Can I use the VagCom to specifically check the CCM Module?

    Did you observe the correct carrier frequency? There's 315MHz for North America and 434 for the rest of the world, IIRC.

    I really do not know. I bought it from the USA. I will try to get that information tomorrow. Thanks for the Tip.
