    Hi All,

    I've been looking around the site for information on programming a key for a 2003 Jetta TDI. I ordered a key and fob from fixmyvw. I bought VCDS a while back, so will it do all the programming I need, or do I need to rent the cable the fixmyvw?

    Thanks...Jeff

    Do you have a genuine VCDS cable or a Chinese cloned cable? Either way VCDS won't programme keys without the Secret Key Code (SKC). There are a couple of software and cable VAG-TACHO and VAG K+CAN Commander that should find the SKC and programme your new key. google it

    Thanks Keithuk,

    I bought it from Ross-Tech, so yes it's genuine. I'll check into the other cables then. Is there a specific version for vag-tacho that I would need?

    Thanks again...Jeff
