Hi hoping that somebody can give me a definitive answer , I have lost my only key for my T4 !! It is a 97 with the 2.0 petrol engine , I have sent for and received a new key and now need it coded in . My problem is that the van is at the top of a mountain in rural Spain at least 40 miles from the nearest VW dealer. Can I take this key ( genuine VW) and get it coded at a dealers or do they need the van ? I have looked at various threads on this and some seem able to be coded at normal key shops and some don't ?
Any help here folks ?

Nope - They need the van sorry dude.

If you had the old key you might be able to get that copied without the van but as you don't have the key then they need your van too.

The only other option is getting a dealer code and skc and taking vag com to the vehicle. but is quite often impossible to get the codes.

they will need to code it with the van, the only other way involves a "broken" key but other than that its a trip to your local dealer
