VW AUDI SEAT SKODA reprogramming key fob

Original material from www.techwatch.co.uk and cross referenced with www.autokeysquad.com and my first "How To" video !.

I've recently experienced loss of operation of my skoda key fob, and thought I needed to reprogram the key fob.

Luckily, I just replaced the internal battery with a new CR2032 (or CR2025 and some paper wadding).


I've post a video on YouTube : How To Replace the Battery in the Key Fob



Anyway - the process to reprogram the key fob is detailed below (try these instructions at your own risk !)

Remote Control Programming (1997 ON)
The process requires the use of 2 keys.
The 1st key is your original key that is working in your car.
The 2nd key will be a new remote key correctly cut to work in your locks,
or the 2nd key could be an existing remote key which has a damaged remote, or doesn't seem to work.


Top Tip ! Always lower drivers window when carrying out this procedure (so you can reach into the car).

  1. Place your 1st key in ignition and turn on so that dash is lit up and leave the key in the ignition.
  2. Mechanically lock the drivers side door and lock with the 2nd key.
  3. Using the remote on the 2nd key, press the unlock button once. The horn should sound (if the horn doesn't sound don't worry just carry on with the procedure).
  4. Wait 6 seconds and again press unlock button once (on the 2nd key). The remote is now programmed.
  5. Now switch off ignition and try your remote.


And for completeness - here's the process for blanking key fobs.

Remote Control Erasing (1997 ON)

  1. Place your 1st key in ignition and turn on so that dash is lit up, leaving the key in the ignition.
  2. Mechanically lock the drivers door using a second key.
  3. Press the remote control unlock button on the 2nd key 5 times in 1 second intervals. A short horn will sound.
  4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once on the 2nd key to activate memory erase.
  5. Switch ignition off, all remote key fobs are now erased.
