Threw a volkswagen dealer,they have to reflash it,and pull the code.This is done to protect your car,from theft.

Then they will set key code back to ecm.

On my Acura, the previous owner wrote it in the owners Manual but I didn't know it and called the dealership....they were able to give me a 4 digit code to reset.....I'm sure they get those inquiries all the time.
