Replacement car keys, either if you lost or had them stolen, spare car keys even if you require a remote fob key, which is exactly the same as the original, the blade has broken away from the case is a common problem in VW keys. Locked the keys inside the boot or the car? We can gain entry without causing any damage, we come across more keys getting locked inside the car more often our advise would be make sure you have a spare car key.

Gaining entry

We have many different methods we can use to gain entry into a Volkswagen vehicle, if it’s a lost key situation then we’d lock pick the door lock which then enables us to get the key codes to cut a key for the same lock which is currently on the car. If it’s a type of situation that you’ve locked the key in the vehicle then depending on model and year of the car depending which method we believe would be most cost efficient.

Spare keys

If you have a vehicle with just one key then we always recommend you get a spare key straight away, it could save you loads of money and headaches if and when you misplace your key. Again with spare keys we can do remote or non-remote keys depending on the type of key which you require, feel free to contact us for more info.

Transponder keys

All vehicles sold in the UK since 1995 have a small chip inside the key which allows the car or van to fire up and start.

Programming transponder to the vehicles there is loads of different methods on some of the older vehicles for example polo’s golf MK3 etc. we have to remove the immobilizer box from the vehicle which in turns means we can program a key for the vehicle. For 85% of the Volkswagens we can program a key via OBD diagnostics port. For the vehicles in which we have to remove immobilizer units to program keys as a general rule if you have a current key means we can program via the diagnostics port. If you don’t have no keys then we have to program direct into the immobilizer unit which will take more time and cost more money.

    Abacuskeys are geniuses I lost the keys to my Volkswagen Touareg, VW themselves had a one weeks wait for a new set of keys which makes no sense to me. Called over 20 different locksmiths within the London area most didn’t have a key in some stock, some didn’t cover my make and model. Abacuskeys come out and got the work done on site within the space of an hour.

    Over the years I’ve used these guys twice once when I made a mistake and locked my keys in the boot of my golf, the second time when I locked the keys in the back of my Transporter van both times they managed to get my keys from the vehicles within 15mins.
